Beef Carbonade Question

This is my first try at making this dish..I have three different recipes and don't know whch way to jump here..One says to use red wine, the other two say dark beer, the spices and seasoning differ with each recipe so I've picked one that the seasonings used are garlic,onions bay leaf,beef broth, brown sugar..two others say to add cinnamon and clove..Help which would you opt for? I plan to use this tomorrow and put it over polenta and am really confused here.
kadesma, not much of a stew person so I need help

I'd go with the beer. That seems to be the key with this dish.

I'm with Andy. I'd definitely go with the dark beer.

Hi Dave, I got it started and so far it smells pretty good. I still have cooking time on it and plan to put it over polenta tomorrow. DH tasted it and likes the flavor, me, I'm not so sure.I've never been a beef stew type eater. Mom use to make stew once every two weeks and I made sure I had something else to have..This might be better as no veggies in it nor stringy stew meat..I used a chuch roast all cut up and browned in butter so the meat does taste a lot better..So tomorrow we shall see...

I'm a little late, but this one looks/sounds so good, thought I would pass it along.

Thanks Lyndalou, I tasted the gravy that mine is cooking in and I do like it. I'm hoping that the polenta works well with it, we are polenta nuts here Will let you know how the meat is..I used a chuck roast.
