In a saucepan, melt the butter and bittersweet chocolate over low heat, stirring often, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the stout and both sugars. Whisk in the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Whisk in the vanilla and salt.

Sift the flour and cocoa over the chocolate mixture and, using a rubber spatula, stir in until just blended. Pour into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost completely clean, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in the dish on a wire rack, then cut into big squares. Serve with cold milk or chocolate stout.

**A good stout beer to use: Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout**
