Chocolate Stout Cake (from a mix!)

I Should never listen to food shows on NPR when I am hungry.  But I do.  And on one particular Saturday morning when I heard the words "Chocolate Stout Cake" I simply could. NOT. stop. thinking about that concept.  It haunted me.  I mean, we're talking about two of my favorite things here: chocolate and stout!  Yummy!!  

Finally, I gathered together the ingredients I would need.  Being a simple kind of gal, I decided to try and create the goodness using a boxed cake mix. 
1 Devils Food Cake mix
1 Bottle Chocolate Stout (I used Bison organic)
Vegetable Oil
1 Chocolate Bar

Prepare and bake the cake according to mix directions, using the chocolate stout in place of the water called for in the mix instructions.  

Although I did briefly consider a Kahlua, Bailey's, or stout laced chocolate frosting - in the end I went with a simple chocolate frosting.  I also grated a chocolate bar and sprinkled the curls over the top. (because a little extra chocolate is always good!)
