    As far as meat goes I think lamb would be a good choice, or maybe game meat, perhaps wild boar. If you looking to pair with cheese I'd go with a blue cheese such as Stilton, or a well aged goat cheese.

    A really sharp aged cheddar. I don't think I would really pair it with a full meal though personally.

    I agree with Hockey and bpgpitt. Lamb or boar would be good, but at the same time that is a beer that should most likely be enjoyed as a digestif.

    I've found that BBBWs make for wonderful dessert beers after a nice big plate of chicken tikka masala or other spicy Indian dishes.

    A nice creamy gorgonzola with rye bread is my personal fav. Throw that on a plate with some raw or candied pears and some dates and you will pull some nice flavors out.

    i really like barleywines.

    PS. This is best followed after a light-medium meal, and to last 1-2 hours. only an amateur lover would rush making love, and only an amateur would rush the barleywine.

    Variety of cheese, hard cheddar, soft cheeses possibly particularly if they are fatty and not too strong (Camponzola, soft brie).. gamey stuff like goat and barleywine could work but it could be a bit too much on the palate. Try several.

    As for a "dish" that's tough since the beer style is usually very large, but the end of the meal option makes most sense to me.

    I had a Sucuba at Beachwood last night. Went well with chicken nachos and buffalo sloppy joe.
