Chocolate porter ice cream dream

I had the best Sunday yesterday. I got up before any one else in the house(all though, I think that says more about them than me) and had a nice quiet breakfast with good coffee and a newspaper. Just perfect.
Later on in the day we decided to try out a recipe from one of our favourite cookbooks. a chocolate porter ice cream. This household is a bit over the top interested in beer, and love to experiment.
We don't have an ice cream maker, so it took quite a while, and a lot of stirring, for the ice cream to actually freeze. But it was so worth it.
I come for an ice cream loving family, and have eaten my share of chocolate ice creams, and this one is clearly one of the best ice creams I have ever tasted. The porter(which is almost like a stout) gave it a richness that was incredible.

We used this beer called; Flying dog Imperial Porter. It had been stored for about two years, and had developed a velvety soft feeling to it.

 Chocolate Porter Ice cream:

180 grams of sugar
1 1/2 dl water
100 grams of dark chocolate
2 1/2 dl cream
2 dl porter
2 dl milk
125 grams of grated dark chocolate

Put sugar, water and chocolate in a casserole and heat it up slowly while stirring. When the chocolate is melted you put in the porter, cream and milk. Put it in the freezer and stir it every half hour until you have the right texture. Put in the grated chocolate when the mixture is

This recipe gives about 1 liter of ice cream, and because of its richness you wont be able to eat that much in one go, so this will at least hold for the rest of the week! Enjoy!
