Black And Tan Beer Traditional Recipe
- 1 bottle Guinness Stout
- 1 bottle Bass Ale
- Fill a 20oz glass halfway with bass ale. Tilt the glass, while pouring to reduce foaming and let it set for a while.
- Place a spoon with the convex side up at the lip of the glass, parting over the centre. Pour in the Guinness over the spoon. This will help the Guinness from mixing with the bass, allowing it to float on top.
