What goes well with chocolate porter?

Last Christmas, bought two bottles of chocolate porter. Seemed a good idea as we like chocolate, but they are still sitting in the cellar.

What foods go well with chocolate porter?

They can be quite flavoursome but will match OK with sweet stuff - chocolate cake, chocolate deserts etc
Though to be honest I find them sufficient on their own :)

Hard to beat a good hunk of stilton with that.

Possibly fuit cake and cheese.

You would need strongly flavoured food, though savoury dishes would work.
Steak & kidney pie, mash and gravy seems a possibility.

Thankyou.
Did just that yesterday evening.
Hard to say if it beats a decent port, but jolly good.

On the label it says to chill, didn't fancy it chilled.

In fact, I can imagine it mulled, by the fireside in a month or three.
