Servings 1 quart


  • medium sauce pan
  • stand mixer with paddle and whisk attachments (or hand mixer with beaters and mixing bowl)
  • freezer safe container (6 c capacity works well)
  • plastic wrap
  • foil


  • 12 oz. bottle of guinness beer (or other stout)
  • 1 pint (473ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla bean paste sub with vanilla extract
  • 14 oz (414 ml) sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 toffee bars (1.5 oz. each), evenly chopped into small pieces


  • Pour a full 12oz. bottle of Guinness Extra Stout into a small or medium sauce pan. Bring the beer to a boil over medium heat. Heat the liquid until it reduces down to about 2/3 c, about 20-25 minutes. 
    Remove from heat and cool until warm to touch, about 15-20 minutes. Do not use the reduced beer in the recipe until it has cooled a bit.
  • Pour heavy whipping cream into a mixing bowl. Beat on medium high speed until medium firm peaks form, about 7-8 minutes.
  • In a seperate bowl, stir the sweetened condensed milk and reduced guinnes syrup together until well combined.
  • Fold 1/2 of the sweetened guinness mixture into the whipped cream. Fold until mostly combined. Once combined, fold in the remaining 1/2 sweetened guinness mixture.
  • Pour 1/2 of the guinness ice cream base into the freezer proof container. Crumble 1/2 of the toffee pieces on top. Repeat a second layer using the remaining guinness ice cream base and toffee pieces.
  • Freeze for 4-5 hours uncovered. If storing for longer, freeze 4 hours, wrap in plastic wrap and foil. Bring to room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving.
