I was wondering about this. Since hops are somewhat related to other green
leafy substances, I'm sure that at some time somebody had tried it. I've
just never heard anybody talk about it before. (I can't imagine why! :-)

Does it need to be a real heavy beer like stout to balance the fairly
strong flavor and aroma of the vegetation?

I think it would be interesting to try this. Strictly for scientific
purposes, you understand.
