My new Black & Tan

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
So I went into the package store the other day and I saw a beer I have been curious about for sometime now. It was the Young's Double Chocolate Stout. I asked the guy how it was and he said "It's very chocolaty." I was going to pass until he told me to get a bottle of that and a bottle of the UFO raspberry and pour them like I would a black and tan.

He told me just to buy one bottle of each to see if I like it and when I do, I would be back for more. So I went home and poured my new creation and... WOW it was good!!!

Just make sure that it is very very cold!

I recommend this to anyone looking to change it up a little bit from time to time.

I've tried a lot of black and tan mixes, but that is a new one to me. I'll have to give it a try, thanks for the recommendation. I usually go with Guiness and Woodchuck Cider.

Young's Double Chocolate Stout

Well they say its Chocolate Stout and you would think it taste like chocolate, but it's the same I bet that they use in Samuel Adams Cream Stout where they say they use the hops from the chocolate to make a Creamy Stout. Now I would like to get my hands on some since my name is Thomas Young!
Where is the beer made and shiping locations do you know?

can't find it here

Next time I am out and about will try other places to look for it.
Sounds good.

Both are very good beers! I can only imagine how awesome they are together.

Hmmm, some misinformation here. There is in fact chocolate in the Youngs. Also, the cream stout you're talking about is called a cream stout (aka milk stout) because lactose (aka milk sugar) is added which isn't readily fermentable. It adds to the creamy body and mouthfeel. It has nothing to do with hops.

My favorite black & tan mix is made with Guiness & Fat Tire. Its called an "Oprah" for reasons you might be able to guess. biggrin.gif

Not sure if I can get either of those here, but I bet I could set something similar to both. I will have to look.

Thanks for the tip.

MAN do I wish we had harpoon here. I don't care for youngs double chocolate much - too syrupy sweet for me - but I think the tartness of a raspberry hefe might just balance it out.

Well BigTrain74,

You inspired me..... I cannot get the UFO Raspberry Hefe in Dallas. Something with the TABC....mad.gif

So I decided to try something different and got a 6'er of Purple Haze from the Abita Brewing Company and some Framboise Raspberry Lambic along with the Young's Chocolate Stout.

I poured in the Purple Haze and then hit it with a shot of Framboise followed by the Chocolate Stout

Man was that GOOD!!! PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif Thanks for the idea!!!!

Great beers there! Unfortunately can't fine either one around here, but you know you can't beat a good black & tan

BRILLIANT idea BigTrain!!

I just finished sampling a few different versions- my favorite turned out to be the Young's Chocolate Stout with Lindeman's Rasberry Lambic. I can't wait to try some more versions- maybe using a Cherry Lambic next time! Thanks for the idea.

Nice!!! I like the cherry idea myself. I gotta give that a shot!

I love Young's, but never made a black and tan with it. Do you use a spoon, or just pour it straight in?

I do in fact use a spoon... I actually took a spoon I have and bent it to form over the glass. This ensured there would be no spillage...
