I spotted this recipe in the woman's weekly  Smiley Smiley and could taste it immediately Smiley

just had to try it last weekend camping and it was as good if not better than I imagined.

adapted it a little

1 Tsp olive oil
4 large onions thinly sliced
garlic
1 cup wine
1 litre beef stock
thyme
3/4 cup beer

1
heat oil.
cook onion over medium-low heat stirring occasionaly for about 45 minutes until soft and caramelised.
add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.

2
increase heat to medium-high, add the wine, stir in the stock and thyme.
cook uncovered, until the liquid is reduced by one-third.
add the beer, bring soup to the boil and remove from the heat.

I tasted this soup after I put the wine in and thought it may be a bit plain, but after reducing it and adding the beer...Wow!!!

ps... the expected after-effects never eventuated, so a great taste and no ill-feeling Smiley Smiley
