This will not hold up with fish. It is too overpowering and you'll be mismatched. Go for dessert with this beer or with a strong cheese.
I totally believe you about the lamb or steak, so maybe I should just hold onto the beer for the new year (or better yet, buy a new one). The blue cheese does sound really intriguing though. Thanks to everyone for the advice, and please keep it coming.
