Black & Tan


A Black and Tan is when you layer a dark beer on top of an ale. The most common combination is to layer Guinness stout on top of Bass ale.

The Guinness has to be layered slowly. If it's on tap then the distributor will provide a Guinness spoon that hangs on the tap.

There is a novelty layering device called a Black and Tan Turtle that looks like a turtle and sits on top of the glass.
