Default Cherry porter recipe ideas

I picked up a 6 pack of cherry porter from the specialty beer store tonight, with the idea of making my cherry lambic bbq sauce with the porter instead of the lambic and smoking some ribs this weekend.

Do any of you have other recipe ideas for this beer?

I drank one tonight, and it was OK. I can see how it would make a great base for a sauce or something. But, it sure is not something I would drink a lot of. I'm a huge fan of a good Porter, but I just don't like fruit in my beer (other than lambics).

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

Do a schnitzel with a black cherry sauce, reduce that stuff to make the base of the sauce.
