Ski Queen Gjetost 8.8 oz
A Norwegian cheese known for refueling Alpine skiers post-slalom, Gjetost packs one-of-a-kind sweetness inside its bright red package. It may have the firm, smooth texture of fresh fudge and taste like molten caramel, but this confection is 100% cheese, made from pasteurized goat and cows' milk that's aged into tight little cubes in 1-2 months. Pronounced 'Yay-toast' (think: Yay! I'm putting this on my toast!), we're fond of slicing ribbons onto wedges of crisp, green apples and washing it down with a nutty brown ale and, naturally, hard cider.
Just the Facts
Porters and StoutsPorter, Stout, Imperial Stout
Welcome to the dark side of beer. Porters and Stouts are born of heavily roasted malted barley, which colors the beer and develops toasty flavors recalling chocolate, coffee, and chicory. Looks can be deceiving, though: dark doesn’t always mean strong. Porters and stouts can be incredibly light in body, or big boozy affairs that pour like syrup.
Pair with: A mild, creamy blue like Cambozola Black.
