I'm giving the recipe 5 stars even though I think I may have chosen the wrong beer. I used the Sam Adams blackberry wheat beer and drank one as it baked. When I tried a slice just now it kind of freaked me out to taste the same thing in both solid and liquid form. I'm not sure how I feel about the way the blackberry flavor stays in the bread, an orangey beer like shock top may have been a better choice. The recipe is VERY simple, though, and I'm glad to have found something so cool/cheap/easy to make. I sifted my flour, FYI. And I used salted butter instead of margarine.
Anyway I can't wait to try this with a stout or porter. I think I know what will happen to the leftover St. Patrick's Day Guinness in my apartment. I'll bet the chocolate/coffee taste of that beer will be totally different from this one.
- an update. I made it with some dark, chocolate-tasting ale (Dos Perros, from a brewery in TN?) and a bit of cinnamon. It was MUCH better.
