"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
Toffee:
1 c. sugar
1 c. butter (2 sticks)
c. amber ale
Topping:
2 c. pretzels, smashed
2 c. dark chocolate chips (60% cacao content)
c. amber ale or chocolate stout

Directions:
Directions:
In a large pot over high heat add the sugar, butter and c. amber ale, it will triple in volume during the cooking process so make sure to use a large pot. Stir until the mixture starts to boil. Allow to boil untouched until the mixture starts to darken and thicken (about 230). Stir continuously until it turns a very dark amber and hits 290. This process will take between 15 and 20 minutes from start to finish. pour onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Allow to cool. Add the chocolate to a large bowl. Heat the beer until hot but not boiling. You can heat it on a pot on the stove or microwave it in a microwave safe bowl. If you use the microwave, know that the beer will foam up once it reaches it's boiling point. Pour the hot beer over the chocolate chips and stir until well combined and melted. Pour the chocolate over the toffee and smooth out in an even layer. Sprinkle the crushed pretzels over the chocolate and chill until the chocolate has set. Cut into pieces.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
If you use a chocolate with less than 60% cocoa content, it will have higher levels of milk solids, because of this it will have a more difficult time hardening once the beer is added. Try to find 60% cocoa. Chill it to set.
