Tart and fruity Flanders red ale and dark, creamy stout make a simple two-ingredient cocktail with notes of caramel, chocolate, citrus, and berry.

When selecting a stout, you'll want something bold and rich, with strong notes of coffee and chocolate—we found that drier, lighter versions muddle and dilute the flavor of the sour instead of offering a chocolaty backbone to the drink.
