Marshmallows and mud pies: 12 exceptional dessert beers you have to try

Just as we have been known to nod in agreement as a sommelier lists all the incredible (but to our taste buds, non-existent) flavours in the wine we’re sipping, sometimes we’ve been disappointed when a beer promising all kinds of chocolate delivers nothing like the cocoa hit we were after.

But no more: the craft beer scene is growing constantly and there are several dessert-in-a-bottle beers on the market these days offering proper smack-you-in-the-face flavours.

With the help of two boozy connoisseurs – Brody Rossiter, beer guru at HonestBrew, and Sunday Brunch beer expert Sarah Warman of Brewdog (as well as our own extensive research in several pubs of course) – we bring you a list of 12 stonking beers that do what they say on the tin.

These, friends, are special. Pecan mud pie, salted millionaire’s shortbread, espresso, ice cream and even liquorice flavours abound – scroll through our gallery below for the bottles, cans and pours we think you should keep an eye out for in taprooms, bottle shops and craft beer bars.

Because if a beer says it tastes like a brownie, we want it to taste like a bloody brownie.
