Default Beer and a Cigar anyone?

For you cigar smokers do you ahve any favorite combinations? Any beers that just don't go well with a cigar?

For me i would say my favorites are...

Joya De Nicaragua and an IIPA
Cain Maduro and Imperial Stout
La Gloria Serie R and an IPA or a Stout

In fact as I type I am enjoying a Cain and a Clone of Old Rasputen Russian Imperial Stout.

I have many favorites.

Maduro Chisel with oak/bourbon ales
Habanos RASS, PSD4, PL's with IPAs (some Americans)
Strong Nicaraguan puros and a stout/porter
Oscuro wrappers (601 Green) with IPAs also works

Romeo y Julieta Mille Fleur with a good Barley wine is scrumptious!

I'll take just about any medium bodied smoke, as long as it isn't too spicy and pair it with a nice brown ale. I tend to pair the lighter beers with light cigars, medium with amber and browns. Occassionally I'll do a maduro and a stout. My most common pairing though is a Montecristo number four and one of my brown ales. Not too hoppy to distract from my stogie since I don't smoke very often (about once a month sometimes longer between smokes).

No, not Bourbon either

Cigars take away from the beer experience for me anyway. Something about the smoke/carbonation kills it for me.

Maybe I need to try a Macanudo with a Rauchbier though

Now BOURBON is the way to go. . . But medium bodied smokes go great with english style beer carbed to real ale levels, my fave recently was a NUB Cameroon and some of my Mild.

My taste in cigars really isn't refined enough to pick out particular type, but I do love sipping really big beers with a cigar. Something like a barleywine or a really strong stout, Goose Island Bourbon County for example, go great with a fine smokable in my opinion.
