Made this tonight! Absolutely delicious! Add a little water to powdered sugar/maple syrup glaze to get a better consistency.

I also made this for Thanksgiving morning. Wonderful. I thinned the icing with some of the extra stout and it was perfect!!

Made this last weekend - big hit with hubby. I made glaze according to recipe which gave it more the consistency of icing. Next time I will thin it out, and as he has a real sweet tooth, will most likely make a bit extra glaze. Between the stout and maple, it had a nice balanced flavor. The stout keeps the bread from being overly sweet.

I made this for Thanksgiving breakfast. It was a huge hit. Everyone loved it. I did add more water to improve the consistency of the icing but that was the only difference. It was easy to make and easy to freeze. I will definitely make it again. Great recipe!!!

Great bread! BUT I wasn't able to taste the stout. I wish it was a bit more heartily flavored. Any way to get a more pronounced flavor of stout? Also, for some reason, my bread collapsed in the center. Is it because I used fat free greek yogurt instead of sour cream?

This was great! As the other reviewers said, I also wish you could taste the stout a bit more and would thin out the "icing" to more of a "glaze" next time. I'm not a big baker but this was great. This bread is a wonderful start to the morning...goes great with a cup of coffee.

My first Cooking Light recipe! I threw this together last minute and forgot to buy stout, however I did have a few Coors Light laying aroung (hey, I just graduated from college). After a quick search on google, I decided to take a chance with my mediocre beer, and I also used full-fat sour cream (again, last minute baking). Was a little unsure as to how it would turn out, BUT I'm so glad I tried. Very tasty, with a nice moist consitancy. Was a hit in the office, and will try again with correct ingredients :)

Very tasty, relatively simple bread. I made the poached pair bread from Cooking Light Wow. It was amazing! Perfectly sweet (without the glaze) and very moist, everyone loved it. I used White Whole Wheat flour and some Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and the texture and density were great.

These taste phenomenal! They came together quickly and had an amazing taste -- just the right amount of sweet with a hint of stout. I was without a loaf pan so I made them into muffins (without the glaze because I was serving them with salads for dinner and didn't want them to taste too dessert-y) and they turned out perfectly! Soft and fluffy on the inside with an ever-so-slightly crispy exterior. I highly recommend this recipe and I know I'll be making it again myself!

This is a very nice switch from other quick breads. My husband really enjoyed it because it is not too sweet. I did add a teaspoon of maple extract to the batter and to the glaze. I also had to thin out the glaze a bit so I could drizzle the bread. But otherwise very good.
