"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together the sugars and butter until thick. Blend in the eggs and vanilla. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the cocoa and Guinness, letting them sit to let the foam subside and then whisking again. In another bowl, mix or sift together the flour and baking soda. Then, slowly add alternating amounts of the stout/cocoa and flour/soda into the large bowl, mixing thoroughly each time until all ingredients are incorporated. Pour into a greased cake pan and bake for 40 minutes.

Prior to icing, cool until just warm. Melt together the butter and chocolate in either a double boiler or a bowl sitting on a small pot of simmering water. Stir in the cream at the end and mix thoroughly. Spoon the icing over the cake until covered completely. Place the cake in the fridge, uncovered, until the icing hardens.
