Bacon + Craft Beer

This time on The Flavor Project, Bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with almonds & balsamic syrup, from Watermarc restaurant in Laguna Beach, California. What craft beer goes best with this decadent appetizer?

I would recommend AleSmith Grand Cru, a delicious 10.6% Belgian dark strong ale. The beer has beautiful winter fruit notes that will harmonize perfectly with the date and balsamic syrup, caramel and toffee notes from the beer will envelope the almonds and the roasted grains are a slam dunk with the bacon!
