Beer with aromas of dried fruits, caramel and praline
Type: a soft cheese with a rinsed crust / Example: Mont d’Or
A very aromatic beer rich in alcohol with aromas of caramel and candy sugar. It is recommended to combine it with the Mont d’Or, a cheese that contains the same intensity of flavors.
Type: a blue cheese or a white crusted cheese / Example: Stichelton or Chaource
The roasted dark malt of this Christmas beer and its dried fruit flavors produce a splendid combination with the mild creaminess of the Chaource. Serving the Stichelton – something like a raw-milk version of Stilton – with this beer is daring and complexe. A nice beer&cheese pairing for informed connoisseurs.
