Bump, I’m thinking of trying this for friends tomorrow over Bridge.

Have 2 bottles of Oak Aged Yeti and 1 bottle of regular Yeti to devote to this cause.

Will probably open the regular Yeti first, thoughts on ice cream for it? In the past, and with non-alcoholic beverages, I have always preferred a high quality real vanilla bean ice cream.

I’ve had Dark Lord poured over cheesecake and that rocked!

I’ve also ordered a Young’s Double Chocolate float. It sucked until there was just enough beer left to mix it up with the vanilla ice cream and make a pseudo-shake out of it.

I don’t really like mixing craft beer with food either, but I’m sure I’m in the minority there.

I have never liked any non vanilla ice cream float as well as its vanilla counterpart, I think some toffee chunk stuff could work here though.

I’ve heard NG Belgian Red and Raspberry Tart make amazing floats with vanilla ice cream. I’ve yet to try it myself though.

Did a Stone RIS float last night. Not a huge fan of that beer, so it started off kind of unpleasant, but once the ice cream started to melt a little and mix with the beer it became a delicious chocolate shake sort of contraption.

Yum. Still have a bottle of Yeti and Fort to try with.

I’ve made a few kriek floats in my time...

For the refinement level of beer that we drink (Nøgne Rochefort etc) I suggest use equally fine locally-made ice cream, like Greg’s in Toronto.

None of this supermarket stuff full of additives and whipped with air - it goes on sale for two bucks a kilo for a reason!!

"When you are cooking, always use the best ingredients - or the dish will taste like the cheapest thing you put in there."

I am curious to try straight-up chocolate AND vanilla bean by Greg’s - in Rochefort, in Koningshoeven Quad and St. Bernie Abt 12, possibly in Scandinavian stouts, but I’m a little scared the hops and american oak in Yeti would create a trainwreck.

My father in law made a sundae with the sludge on the bottom of a bottle of Dark Lord - it was actually very good.

second street brewery makes an AWESOME stout malt ice cream from the remnants of the mash from their cream stout. thwy only make a very small amount, but when its on hand you can get a scoop of stout ice srem in the cream stout and it’s one of the best dishes i’ve ever had period, regardless of beer or desert.
