1 x 375ml bottle stout
100g dark chocolate
3 tbs caster sugar
90ml espresso coffee

Heat the oven to 180C and line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin with baking paper.
Melt the dark chocolate with the butter in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over just simmering water.
Mix together the sugar, flour and cocoa and stir in the melted chocolate and butter mixture, followed by the eggs. Stir through crushed hazelnuts.
Pour into the tin and smooth the surface. Bake for 25 – 30 mins.
Allow to cool before slicing.
Melt the sugar over a moderate heat in a pot or frying pan.
Add the stout, and slowly reduce by half.
Add in the chocolate and melt – you want a nice syrupy consistency. Allow to cool.
Whisk/beat the cream until firm peaks form.
Slowly add stout liquid and fold it through the cream. Once combined, set in the fridge.
Add sugar and boiling water to pot.
Reduce over a moderate heat until it becomes a nice syrupy consistency.
Combine the espresso with sugar syrup and further reduce slightly.
Drizzle the coffee syrup onto your plate/bowl.
Crumble the brownie on next.
Finish with crushed salted pretzels and stout cream.
