    Yeah...sweet as hell as a stout...but as ice cream? My girl just had it at the brewpub last night and said it's amazing...hopefully I'll get to try it for myself in a couple of weeks...has anyone else tried this?

    I make ice cream from some of the Southern Tier Blackwater beers - way too sweet to drink, but make a fine & flavorful ice cream. Mokah, Choklat, and Creme Brulee have all worked well. Bet DL would make a good one!

    Blot out the sun ice cream sucks. Dark lord ice cream is AMAZING. It's like dark chocolate cherry ice cream.

    I have to agree I had Dark Lord ice cream last week at the brewpub and I thought it was fantastic.

    What's the chance of getting the recipe ?
    I love good beers, and good homeade ice-cream..

    First, take an entire bottle and boil it down until it becomes a syrup - like a quarter of the original. (Realize that hoppy beers do NOT work for this - way too bitter after reduction!) Make a standard vanilla ice cream (recipe follows.) Add the cold syrup either into the whole batch and process in the ice cream freezer, or half-freeze it and swirl it in - make sure it's cold before adding - and finish processing.
    1/2 quart heavy cream
    2.5 cups sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla (skip if using Creme Brulee!)
    8 egg yolks
    Bring cream, sugar & vanilla to a boil and whisk constantly. Take off heat and cool in a sink full of cold water, or bowl of ice, whisking occasionally until cool. Whisk in egg yolks and cook over a simmer in a double-boiler, whisking all the time until thick. Chill down completely before processing in your ice cream maker.

    I had eaten Tier Black water beer flavored ice-cream last month.
    I felt a bit bitter taste I don't know why?
