Chocolate Stout Birthday Cake

Once again, I made:
Chocolate Stout Cake
from this excellent recipe Epicurious has.

I substituted a porter this year.  That was a good.
I substituted brown sugar and didn't pack it.  I would have preferred the cake to be a little sweeter.

For fun, instead of the ganache frosting that comes with the recipe, I did an alternative of bittersweet chocolate with sour cream.  Mistake for us.  Not just too tangy, but actually sour in the context.  Next year, back to the given chocolate and whipping cream that epicurious specs out.

Thank you, that is all.
