Thank you DuClaw Brewing for sponsoring this post and sending me the DuClaw 865cc Coffee Stout. All opinions and the sweet potato recipe are my own.
Welcome to the November edition of “Cooking with Beer”! Each month DuClaw Brewing sends me a beer and a friend and I create a recipe. It’s a fun time to think outside the box and try a new beer and new food. This month’s beer is “865cc Coffee Stout”, an stout with an intense coffee flavor from the addition of cold steeped, Cafe Racer XXX 865cc coffee which is roasted in Baltimore, MD. I have to confess that this is one of my favorite beers that I’ve had from DuClaw. I kind of didn’t want to cook with it or share it. If you love coffee, you want to try this beer.
Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I wanted a recipe that could hold it’s own with a turkey and all the assorted sides. I thought about making some sort of dessert, but last month I made a chocolate mousse. I wanted to try something different. So, a Thanksgiving side it was! And what a side it is! It’s a grown up version of sweet potatoes with candied walnuts. I may have eaten the whole bowl that I used to take the pictures. My 15 year old even loved it and he doesn’t like walnuts OR sweet potatoes. Perhaps I did make a dessert after all…

I have a new appreciation for sweet potatoes (real sweet potatoes, not the canned ones). I’m not a fan of beer or coffee, but the candied nuts make this an interesting combo. 😉
Coffee stout?! Yes. Please. This recipe looks amazing. I need to add it to my Thanksgiving menu.
Oh wow how cool is that! They sending you beer with payment huh? These sweet potatoes look amazing I bet they would be great for Thankgiving!!!! Saving for sure! Thanks

Sweet potatoes didn’t make the cut for this year’s Thanksgiving table. I will have to try these another time.
Oh, wow, these sound really good. I don’t like overly sweet sweet potato dishes, but this one sounds pretty balanced.
Ha! My husband would love me to cook with beer.
ANY excuse for sweet potatoes, any excuse for a solid craft beer. #winning
