My new Black & Tan - Page 2

post #21 of 37
Those of you who are black-and-tan fans, I highly recommend the Brutul! check it out here...

My wife got me one for my birthday a couple years back and it's amazing how easy it makes pouring a black-and-tan.

LOL.....You won't be disappointed!! It works great, pours to perfection every time and it's also a great conversation piece - I mean, pouring a beer over a turtle's back? It's awesome! I believe I poured the beer in my picture with it.

It is definetley a cool piece. I can't wait to give it a shot...

Excuse my ignorance, but after the pour and serve, you mix it when you drink it, right?

Generally, you get entirely stout in the first few sips. As you work your way down, the flavors begin to mix into a beautiful blend of brewed barley bliss!!!

like ^^^^^ said... You do not want to mix them yourself. Just let the two wonderful beers meet halfway and enjoy!

A black and tan traditionally consists of guiness and bass ale. This just another form of it.

So I got a four pack of the Youngs Double Chocolate Stout draft cans and I'm looking forward to trying some concoctions with it. I have some Harp that I'll use first - just because the only fruit beer my local supermarket had was blueberry and that didn't strike me as mixing well with the chocolate stout. I would love to try a raspberry brew or the Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, so I may be on a mission for some of that stuff this weekend! Any suggestions on alternatives?

Hmm, now you got me thinking... If you notice one of the previous threads there was that Purple Haze ,raspberry wheat beer. Did you ever think of trying something like shock top or a blue moon? That would give you a little bit of a citrus kick with the chocolate.

Without walking with you in a package store down where you live, I am not 100% sure what to tell you to pick up. Im sure after this post I will have a few ideas that I will pm you with.
