To make the Cake:
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a bundt pan.
In a saucepan, bring stout and butter to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk in cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon instant coffee until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Combine flour, sugars, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat together eggs, yogurt and vanilla until smooth. Beat stout mixture into egg mixture just until combined. Add flour mixture in thirds, stirring until just combined. Fold in 4 ounces chocolate chips.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool cake for 15 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a cake rack to cool completely.
To make the Ganache:
Combine remaining 1 teaspoon instant coffee, 6 ounces chocolate chips and cream over a double-boiler.
Stir over medium heat until smooth. Pour ganache over cooled cake.
