I made dough using a beer called "Three Philosophers Belgian Style Beer". It is an amber color beer that is way darker than Duvel Belgian Style beer. (Bottle says: Part of the Duvel family of fine ales)) I must say that the dough turned out fabulous with this beer. The dough had a little more yellow color to it, but nothing like dough that i have seen made with a stout beer. The dough texture was great and a good flavor.
I would use this beer again, but I would lean more towards the Duvel Belgian Beer which turned out even better. However, the Three Philosophers is 11.99 a bottle and the Duvel is 12.99 a bottle. Expensive beers, but so much fun to try. Here are the photos of my experiment.
I thought it was very considerate of Brewery Ommegang, who brews the "Three Philosophers Beer", to print a reminder on the side of the bottle, to pour the beer slowly, so as to not disturb the yeast sediment.
