Just listened to this podcast the other day. He says:
Start with a good stout recipe (he uses a Foreign Extra Stout)
Don't use cherry extract or it will taste like cough syrup. He uses 2 cans (6#) of Oregon Fruit cherry puree.
For chocolate he uses Hersey's Coco, less fat than unsweetened chocolate.
I havn't tried brewing this myself so I can't comment on the results.
