As I watch my dear food network right now, it's on Dinner Impossible with Robert making meals from beer, and this reminds me of something I learned when I was living in the southern part of Germany. I figured I should share this as we don't get anything like this in the U.S. but it's really good. I normally don't like beer that much because it's too bitter for my taste most times, and German beer is the strongest I know! Anyway, this recipe can be made with any kind of beer but dark beer works really well. The combination sweetens up the beer a little, lowers the alcohol content even more, and gives it a unique taste, it's a little sweeter and less bitter, I guess you could call this the German version of a wine cooler... try it for your next party, even those who don't normally choose beer as their drink at a party will like it.
