Great Lakes Blackout Shake
Great Lakes Brewing Company, a Cleveland brewery, is known for their cleverly named creations that give a nice local nod to the city and its residents. While the Blackout Stout was named for the 2003 blackout that spread across a good deal of the Northeast and the Midwest, it actually has a dual meaning. The ABV on this beast is a 10.5%. It’s a ridiculously smooth and roasty beer; you’d hardly know it could knock you down so hard.
Which is what makes it perfect for this concoction.
How often do you want a boozy milkshake that doesn’t contribute to your buzz? Never. This chocolate-caramel milkshake is enhanced by the deep malty flavors of the Blackout Stout and it packs a serious punch.
2 ½ cups chocolate ice cream
½ cup Great Lakes Brewing Company Blackout Stout
¼ cup milk
2 tbsp caramel sauce + additional for garnish
In a blender, combine chocolate ice cream, Blackout Stout, milk and caramel sauce.
Blend until smooth.
Garnish with whipped cream and additional caramel, if desired.
Drink and repeat.
