The Unwatched Pot. The recipe doesn't specify what kind of beer, but I'd use a good dark one.

DH loved this. It was very very liquidy, so he ate it over rice. The recipe didn't specify how to cut the onions, so I sliced them. Also, it didn't say where/when to add the mushrooms, so just put them in with everything else, it worked fine. I didn't use a dark beer, but will try one next time.
