Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Resting time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 130 gr butter at room temperature
  • 190 gr brown sugar
  • 5 tbsp brown beer or stout here I've used the Archivist brown
  • 1 egg beaten loose
  • 220 gr self-rising flour
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 250 gr dark chocolate


  1. Melt the butter in a pan over low heat. Add the sugar together with the beer to the pan and let it gently melt and reduce until you get a thick syrupy texture. Leave to cool down to room temperature in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the egg and beat with a mixer. Sieve the self-rising flour and mix under the beer batter.
  3. Preheat the BBQ for an indirect session at 180°C.
  4. Divide the batter over a baking tray covered with baking paper. By using a spoon, place small piles of the batter at some distance from each other. (+- 1/2 tbsp per biscuit).
  5. Press the biscuits a little so that they get a nice shape. Push the roughly chopped chocolate pieces in the dough and sprinkle a pinch of seasalt on top. Place in the preheated BBQ for 20 minutes until they turn golden brown.

Let the cookies cool down and serve with a nice cup of coffee or a delicious stout! Have a nice dessert!
