What Are Your Favorite Dessert Beers?
Posted on 11/23/2012 by Chops
Thanksgiving has come and gone, and as I look back on the experience, one moment in particular stood out for me as a beer fan: I got to open and share my precious bottle of Rodenbach Grand Cru Sour Ale, 2009 Vintage Oak Aged. It was a special moment that perfectly capped off a day of feasting. This got me to thinking about the concept of dessert beers and which ones I thought of as my favorites. I should note that there is really no such thing as a "dessert beer" per se, just rich and savory brews that we often associate with that role. So I pose the question to all beer fans: what are your favorite dessert beers?

I will get things started with a handful of mine. These are some of the delectable brews I like to bust open when I feel the need to indulge in something special (usually to cap off a fantastic meal):

Creme Brulee Imperial Milk Stout (Southern Tier) - a quintessential dessert beer. Rich, smooth and intensely flavorful. It really does taste like you're drinking a bottle of liquified creme brulee.

120 Minute IPA (Dogfish Head) - a massive brew at 15%+ ABV, this beast is deceptively smooth and syrupy sweet. I love to break out some snifter glasses and distribute a bottle among friends. It's the beer equivalent of a post-dinner brandy.

Beer Geek Brunch Weasel (Mikkeller) - words simply cannot do this beer justice. Crafting this brew involves sifting through weasel shit... and it's unbelievably delicious. Yes, you read that right.

Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock (Schneider Weisse) - one of my all time favorite beers. Big, bold, thick, strong, and silky smooth. This is a frequent choice of mine whenever I need something special to warm my belly after a great meal.

Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout (Foothills) - this brew is a seasonal release for Valentine's Day and can be really hard to come by. Beer fans will actually camp out at the brewery the night before release day to get their hands on some. Yeah, it's that good.
