i used to love the one at teany in nyc but not only am i not living there anymore, they've taken it off the menu. it was pasty rather than melty, spicy and spice-y. served on toast with more melted cheese and cocktail onions (not classic, but tasty nonetheless). i don't think they used a dark beer, but i can't be sure. definitely looking for a more pasty version rather than a gloopy saucy one (although nothing wrong with that), and theirs wasn't oily either. thanks!
