Beer & Cheese

Deschutes Black Butte Porter

Nearly black. Creamy and strong roasted coffee flavors. Slight acidity in the body and tastes of burnt sugar as it dissipates. Has enough body to hold up to the roasted flavors, which isn't true for all porters/stouts. Still light enough to be drinkable. Solid.

Pairing notes

This is great. They really work well together. The cheese removes that slight acidity from the beer, leaving just some of the maltier flavors on the back of the tongue. The beer becomes slightly sweeter like a kiss from a rose a la Seal.

Roelli Dunbarten Blue

Creamier than the Roth Moody Blue and less pungent. Not as crumbly. Good flavors. I would want this on a burger.
