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

Same as the Soiree Manchego. A sad sheep doused in coffee.

Carr Valley Mobay

Goat and Sheep milk combo. Described as "earthy" on packaging. I'm not convinced.
