Welcome to another installment in my “Cooking with Beer” series. I’ve really been enjoying this and have another awesome recipe for you. This time DuClaw Brewing sent me their Naked Fish to cook with. Naked Fish is a Chocolate Raspberry Stout that clocks in at a nice low 4.6% ABV. The chocolate raspberry flavor is accomplished by the addition of a chocolate raspberry coffee.
When I first heard of it, I immediately thought it would work well in my Sweet Baby Jesus cupcake recipe with a raspberry topping instead of frosting, but I wanted to try something new. (But if you want to try it in the other recipe and report back, I’d love to hear!)
When I think savory chocolate, the first thing that popped to mind was Mexican mole, probably because a local restaurant occasionally has it on the menu and it’s fabulous! I’ll be the first to admit that we played fast and loose with the idea and came up with our own rendition. It has only one type of pepper and very few ingredients compared to traditional moles. It is, however, really tasty and quite simple to make. We served it over pork that we cooked in the Instant Pot on slow cooker setting with a cup of chicken broth. I think it would also be tasty with chicken. It has a slightly sweet, chocolatey, spicy flavor and I may have eaten some of the sauce straight from the pot with a spoon.
Any other ideas of yummy recipes for a chocolate raspberry beer? I always love to hear what others might make.

That sounds really good! I think the mole would also be tasty on pork or beef. Yum!
This sounds interesting. I think my husband would like to try something like this.
Oh man! Totally need to make this! I’m a big stout fan and these flavors sound delish!
That is an odd name for a beer! Interesting combo looks really yummy. Still have not cooked with beer yet
What a creative idea! I’ve never tried to make a mole, it looks like it would go great on some homemade tacos! Duclaw sounds like an awesome brewery, I need to check out their stuff!
This sounds so delicious. I’ve never made a mole at home before but will definitely give this a try.
If I had to try to figure out another recipe, I’m thinking maybe some chocolate raspberry brownies that include beer? YUM.
YUM YUM YUM!! My husband would love this recipe! I’d probably try a recipe combining the beer and chocolate to make a syrup for fruit!
This “mole” seems like it would taste great with a variety of different proteins, especially chicken.
Mmmm… What a great idea! sounds very tasty.
Cooking with it looks great but I just want to TRY this beer! Hello chocolate =)
Um hi this is delicious! I can’t wait to try this!
This sounds so delicious! I love a good mole.
Love the name of the beer!! This would be a fun Super Bowl recipe!
This sounds great! And easy is good for me!
