Line at 10" spring-form pan with parchment paper. Cover base and sides of pan on the outside with foil so no water can touch cheesecake while baking.
Toss crumbs with melted butter and press mixture into prepared pan on bottom.
Filling: Stir together sour cream, corn starch and sugar in a bowl. In separate bowl, mix cream cheese, Guinness and eggs with electric mixer until well combined. Combine gently the two mixtures. Pour in melted chocolate with spatula, gently cutting chocolate through mixture.
Pour batter into prepared pan and tap on counter to release any air.
Place pan in large baking dish. Pour water around pan about 1/4 way up pan. Bake for 1 hour. Replenish water if needed. Bake for another 1 1/4 hours or until cheesecake sets.
After baking, turn oven off and, without opening door, allow cake to cool in over for about 2 1/2 hours. Remove foil and store overnight in fridge.
Remove sides of pan and cut cake with wet knife warmed in hot water. Serve with melted chocolate drizzle.
