Who has tried the new Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer? I am obsessed with it. It’s similar to Guinness Draught, smooth and creamy, but with a strong coffee aroma and flavor.
If you are regular around here, you know my Guinness partnership is hands down my favorite. Naturally, pairing this new varietal with a dessert board was an absolute must.
Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is new, so if you haven’t found it near you yet, the classic Guinness Draught also works well with most dessert boards.
For this board, there are a few key things to keep in mind when assembling one and some answers to questions you may have:
Pairing is key. Find the flavors and notes of your beverage and play off of those. If you are unsure, a safe bet is to find desserts that contain the same characteristics.
For Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer, you’ll want to find desserts with chocolate, caramel and butter rich desserts work best, things like chocolate and vanilla pound cakes, chocolate covered pretzels, crème-filled wafers, donuts, sables and butter cookies.
How should a dessert board be assembled?
Gather your components and make sure that moisture rich desserts like cakes are either in liners or placed next to components like chocolates versus cookies where the moisture can zap the crispness out of cookies like sables or other butter-rich cookies.
For maximum visual appeal, make sure to get a variety of shapes and sizes.
Variety is essential when it comes to assembling any board. Make sure you have a little of everything, that includes sweet and salty offerings like chocolate covered pretzels and roasted nuts. Next up, don’t forget the fruit. Fruit filled desserts bring a sweet tartness that does an excellent job with balancing the bitter notes in the Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer and provides counter to the other sweet offerings.
Now that you’re in the know for making the best dessert board to go with Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer, let’s do it!
