Can I use Guinness instead of stout?

Guinness is in a style called "Dry Irish Stout", so anything on this list would probably substitute well. It sort of depends on what you felt was missing from the cake. We could work on narrowing it down to stouts that were stronger in those flavors.

What is a good replacement for stout?

Add Caramel or Coffee Replace the stout with caramel or coffee instead to get the same flavor, but without the alcohol or beer-like aftertaste. Use 1 tablespoon of caramel for every 1/2 cup of stout or use 1 cup coffee for every 1 cup of stout.
