Mulled Ale?

Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for mulled or spiced ale that they know is good and the proportions are right? I can't seem to find a recipe that doesnt' call for some commercially-prepared spice mix that we don't have here, or how to make it "from the hops up."
I have access to dark German ale and would like to make it with sugar and spices, but I know if you get the proportions wrong it can taste bitter and strange.
Anybody got a recipe they actually use?

I've never had mulled ale.  I never knew it existed.  Now I want to make some.

Look into it please, all the recipes I can find call for eggs and that sounds just gross even if you're NOT vegan. I happen to know you can "mull" wine with spices, but I am not terribly conversant with dark ales, I don't know if the same spices for red wine would work for ale.

I am also liking this idea. I wish I could help you. :)

To be frank, knowing the drinking habits current on VW I am surprised that so few people have responded to this. I would have thought y'all were conversant with both mulled wine and mulled ale, like centuries ago.

Is this a standard recipe?  http://www.ifood.tv/recipe/mulled-ale

You're supposed to boil out the carbonation?

Wouldn't boiling out the carbonation also boil out the booze? :-\ ::)

I don't see anything there about boiling it, it says to heat below boiling. But actually that's a recipe for what was called "lamb's wool"--goes back to the 16th century. Pepys used to drink it.

This looks good. I bet you could sub agave or brown sugar for the honey. It might not have much fizz but it doesn't get hot enough to boil off the booze.

I just can't believe that some VWer doesn't have a good recipe they've used forever!!  :o

Even if stuff's boiled/baked a while, not all the booze leaves; much less than most think.
