Grease a nine-inch, springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper; set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat the Guinness and butter until butter is melted.
Remove from the heat; whisk in sugar and cocoa until blended.
Combine the eggs, sour cream and vanilla; whisk into the beer mixture.
Combine flour and baking soda; whisk into the beer mixture until smooth. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Remove sides of pan when completely cool.
For the topping
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy.
Add confectioners’ sugar and cream; beat until smooth, but DO NOT over-beat.
Remove the cake from the pan and place on a platter or cake stand.
Ice the top of the cake so that it resembles a frothy pint of beer.
If you have any, refrigerate the leftovers.
