The black and tan cocktail is a weird combination of lager & stout beer. When layered properly, this concoction looks really cool, I'm not 100% sure about its taste though.

The Black & Tan is a cocktail recipe that is about as simple as it gets. You simply layer a stout (usually Guinness) over a lager. Layering, or the act of pouring the stout over the back of a cocktail spoon, slowly is an essential part of getting the drink to layer correctly.
In Ireland, this drink is known as a Half & Half due to the political undertones of ‘Black & Tan’s’ referring to the English paramilitary.
