Guinness-Milk Chocolate Ice Cream

It's definitely ice cream weather. I have been wanting to make a homemade chocolate ice cream, but not the Mexican Chocolate one, and SP wasn't excited by regular chocolate, so we compromised and made Guinness-Milk Chocolate Ice Cream.
The recipe is, of course, from our trusty and much used copy of David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop. The usual base ingredients (egg yolks, heavy cream, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla) plus the flavor ingredients (Guinness, chocolate) made with the usual method (heat the milk mixture, slowly add to yolks, cook the custard, strain cooked custard over chocolate, stir until melted, add other ingredients, chill, churn) and voila, ice cream.
I don't taste the Guinness much. SP says he definitely tastes it. It made a very nice smooth, creamy, not too hard ice cream. This ice cream is easy to scoop right from the freezer. It has a wonderful milk chocolate flavor. It's definitely one of our favorites and goes on the Make Again list.
