This recommendation is mostly for you older guys whose attenuated-by-age taste buds require something special after a lifetime of exercise. :lol:
You youngsters are welcome to give it a try, though. 8)
When the mood hits me to be face-slammed with outrageous deliciousness, I cut a few slices of Appenzeller cheese, pour a world-class Imperial IPA, fill a favorite briar with some rope, and alternate bites, sips, and puffs until all is gone.
Oh yeah.... :clap:
Ropes are discussed often, here, so pick your poison.
As for the cheese and beer, here are my recommendations:

'Face slammed with outrageous deliciousness' should have its own emoji...
Beverage pairings are old news, but this cheese angle is intriguing. I have some peppercorn gouda and a very (possibly outrageously) delicious IPA put out here in New Zealand by a small brewery called 'Good George' (not joking).
Will sample tomorrow if I get the chance, I think I have some black twist somewhere....

georged, you old sumptuary, that sounds great. A tsunami of flavors.

Bloody hell, no, I haven't. You speak of flavors that would awake the dead. I merely sip Virginia or vapers. What need have I to overwhelm my palate? I've been treating her like a lady for years.

Bourbon or Islay Scotch, Imperial Stout or English Style Barleywine, and Rope or a strong English blend, after a fat steak or moose bourguignon is how I ravage my palate with flavor. It makes a special Sunday.
Wouldn’t have thought to do a DIPA. I’ll have to give it a go. Don’t know about eating at the same time though. Eating while smoking has never appealed to me much. Maybe I’ll give some cheese a go as well anyway. Probably L’amuse Gouda. As Hunter Thompson would say, the only ones who really know where the edge is are those who have gone over it.
