  1. Combine cream, milk, and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  2. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise with a sharp knife and scrape seeds into cream mixture. Place bean pod into mixture and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and discard vanilla bean pod.
  3. Place egg yolks in a bowl. Gradually whisk in 1 cup hot cream mixture.
  4. Whisk the egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan and place over medium heat. Whisk constantly until slightly thickened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Mixture should coat the back of a spoon. Do not let the mixture boil.
  5. Transfer cream mixture to a bowl and chill until cold, at least 2 hours to overnight.
  6. Simmer Irish stout beer in a saucepan over low heat until reduced to 2/3 cup, about 15 minutes. Chill the stout beer syrup at least 2 hours to overnight.
  7. Whisk together chilled cream mixture and beer syrup; pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.
  8. When machine has finished, pack ice cream into a airtight container and store in freezer.


  • Cook's Note:
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract may be substituted for the vanilla bean.



I thought that this recipe was amazing . This was the best. Love it

Made this for our annual Irish Day parade and it was a big hit. I didn't have vanilla bean but used extract.

had a faint bitter aftertaste but was quite nice, had it with guinness cupcakes which cancelled out any bitterness
