Make some beef stock with just roasted beef bones and none of the usual mirepoix. I still might add some of the herbs though. Anyway, reduce that down for about half a day and use all of it in your wort. That might give you the beef flavor you're looking for.

The only thing to remember is you need a moderate to high alcohol liquid to soak the meat in to kill off any bugs and make some of the fat come out so you can scoop it off.

An alternate process I might try is a long boil with a meat in it and keep adding water so the volume doesn't get too low whilst the meat is cooked and then maybe freeze the wort, remove the fat (or use a low fat meat) then heat it up and do the hop boil. I'll have a new mini fermenter coming on line soon so can give it a trial. Venison might be nice in a Stout.
I'd like to try to put venison in a stout or a porter. I'd call it deer beer or whitetail ale. Have to see how my bowhunt goes next month.....

Demi glace might be worth a shot too. Super concentrated beefiness. Mmmmm.

I might have to try this sometime!

Once my micro fermenter is free I'll work on another version.

One thing this trial has probably proven is that the original Cock Ale recipe would require a very flavourful rooster or a very high meat to beer ratio.
