Not sure if it's been discussed here before-- too lazy to dig deep into old threads-- but for me, beer and chocolate offer great opportunities for amazing pairings.
Right now, I just stumbled upon what happens when you drink Leffe Blonde with Green & Black's Maya Gold chocolate (dark chocolate with orange and spices).
Brilliant pairing. Like bathing in radiant sunshine while drinking deep from the eternal source of all existence. Sublime.
Hmm... should I have posted this in that other forum about drunken ramblings and such?
