Peel Bartlett Pears (4) but leave the stems on. Coat them in Lime Juice (2 tablespoon) and set aside to delay the browning process.
Combine the Black Lager (1/2 cup), Water (1 1/2 cup), Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon), Granulated Sugar (3/4 cup), and Cinnamon Stick (1) and simmer on low heat (approximately 5 minutes).
Cook pears in over low heat in sugar syrup, turning them often.
Remove pears with a slotted spoon when tender. You can use a knife or fork to check. Boil remaining syrup and reduce to half (about 1 cup).
Remove cinnamon stick and discard or keep as a garnish. Add Frozen Raspberries (1 cup) and Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1 teaspoon) to syrup and stir in for 5 minutes.
Serve with the syrup drizzled over the pears and enjoy!
