This chili turned out runny and had too much beer flavour for my liking. The next time I would make it, I would use crushed tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes for thickness and cut the beer down to half a cup or leave it out. I also made adjustments to it like adding some green pepper, an extra can of black beans and a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder for depth. It is nice with corn bread on the side.
