Step 1: Ingredients

- 1 beer - 0,5 l (16 oz). The stronger ones are best.
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar 
- pinch of cinnamon
- 4 cloves

Step 2: You Need Your Beer Hot

Heat the beer in a pot, but don't boil it.

Step 3: Divide and Conquer

Separate the eggs. You will need the yolks only, so you can get rid of the whites, but it's better to use them somehow (a meringue?).

Step 4:

Add sugar to the yolks and stir strong and long enough to get the unite, clear pulp. If you use white sugar, the mass should be almost white (even though the yolks are yellow or even orange).

Step 5: Spice It Up

Add the cinnamon and cloves to the hot beer. 

Step 6: Almost There

Add the yolk with sugar to the beer. Remember not to boil the beer, in this step - if the beer is hot - you can turn off the stove.

Stir properly until you get nice creamy consistency.

Step 7: Enjoy

Pour the mixture into your favorite glass, cup or a mug and enjoy your time with this warming, spicy, sweet and creamy elixir.

    What kind of beer did you use? Was it an ale; lager; pilsner etc?
    I used a lager, it's really strong after I made it.
    Also I detected a small mistake in your ingredients list. 0.5 L is roughly 16 oz not 33. I just doubled everything else to make up for more beer.

    I will try this again definitely, but I will use different beers.

    I also used a lager. Yeah, 0.5 l is obviously 16 oz, my mistake. I think it should taste great with some dark beer, but I haven't tried it yet.
