Meanwhile, prepare the sauce in a pan. Fry one tablespoon of the wheat flour, stirring constantly, in the butter, until the caramel turns golden brown. This is how the thickener is prepared: the French call it “roux”.

Pour the dark beer and milk into the thickener and mix everything in the thickener.

Add mustard, a pinch of black pepper, and grated cheddar cheese. Simmer for about a minute, remove from heat and whisk 2 egg yolks into the sauce once it’s all bubbly.
