In Search of Sweet Beers

My boyfriends is not a beer drinker. He'll drink a cider but that's about it. He has a big sweet tooth even when it comes to beverages.

I'm trying to expand his horizons. I've had him try Scaldis and Leffe Brune just as a gauge to see how sweet is sweet for him. He said both "weren't terrible" and he could drink them but he still didn't like them. I want to find something other than a cider that he might like.

My palette leans towards the bitter. I mostly drink Belgian ales and trippels with clove and coriander notes (yum!). I also enjoy IPAs. I'm really out of comfort zone when it comes to picking out something sweet.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
