If you love a classic root beer float, this rich chocolatey cocktail is for you. We’ve substituted root beer for one of the most dessert-like beers out there: Guinness, an Irish stout that has notes of espresso and dark chocolate. To bring out those delectable undertones, we’re combining it with hot espresso, ice cream, and chocolate syrup, and serving up a range of cheese pairings that include a traditional Irish selection, a licorice-flavored blue, and a sweet, creamy button.
