    Dessert is perhaps the one course that we might forget that can pair beautifully with the right beer. Which is the best beer/ dessert pairing you have ever tried?

    For myself, a stout or coffee stout with cheesecake or ice-cream (vanilla or chocolate) or even a cannoli. Ha, in fact a good stout is almost a dessert in itself and could probably be nice with a lot of different desserts. I guess stout is the easy one. I'll be interested to read what others post.

    Jed's Hard Root Beer and vanilla ice cream, in a root-beer float served in a #proper soda fountain glass.

    I had Pranqster Belgian Ale with Baklava. I found the recommendation online, and am glad I tried it.

    A few years back a friend suggested I try Breckenridge Vanilla Porter with vanilla ice cream. The float was quite good. I'm sure it would work with any other vanilla porter as well

    For me, it has to be my peach blackberry recipe. It is really awesome. Because of its sour sweet combination. Here is the recipe for you guys, if you want to try it.

    I don't usually pair beer with dessert, but chocolate with a citrusy IPA is great, and imperial stout with vanilla ice cream is perfection.

    I think the best pairing for a rich dessert is usually an Imperial Stout with coffee - enough bitterness to balance.
