Beer with Caramel Notes
Dessert and beer a sweet subject. You see what we did there? In pairing anything, the basic tenet is that like pairs with like. For a flourless chocolate cake, you need to think what would go well on it. In this case, we think some caramel would take it to the next level, so we pair the sweet chocolate flavors with some sweet caramel flavors in a beer.
Pedro Ximinez Sherry, Montilla-Moriles, Spain
Pedro Ximinez is a grape dried in the sun to concentrate the sugars and the natural flavors of the fruit. Think honeyed figs, dried raisins, and caramel. Some of the best producers will age these wines for many years allowing dried fruit flavors to give way to layers of decadent flavor, from roasted coffee to dense dark chocolate, and toffee. Flourless chocolate cake, meet your new best friend.
