This is a nicely balanced heat and flavorful chili to warm up your cold winter day or night. With the combination of dark chocolate, Surly Furious IPA and the Chipotle Chilies just brings it all together with the rest of the flavors. This is a beanless chili, but you could easily add beans if you prefer.
Personally I let it rest in the fridge over night after simmering for 8+ hours to allow the flavors to continue to meld together. You wont be sorry if you allow it to settle down in the fridge. I personally feel that chili is always better after it has sit chilled for a day or so. You can also substitute Ground chuck or any other beef cut for your meat if you don’t have brisket laying around. But this is a great way to use left over brisket, who am I kidding is there ever left over brisket? lol
