After you take the first sip, doesn't the combination just mix itself?

Is it really important to keep the two separate until imbibing? I always thought the separation was just a way to impress womencustomers, kind of like lighting a shot on fire, as if somehow burning off the alcohol in my drink is a better way for me to have shelled out five bucks.

/have no idea what bar prices actually are

A good black & tan can be layered by running the second brew over the backside of a spoon. You can do this at home with not much effort.

The design is flawed. That's not a black and tan, not to mention it appears to be well short of a pint.

I know that; I'm just curious what the point is of keeping (or even making) it layered in the first place, other than presentation.

One that's poured well doesn't mix right away. Presentation -is- a big part of it, but the flavor changes as you sip it.

They sell cheap gross tasting prade shots at liqour stores here thay come in a plastic shot glass with basically the same design...one side is the alcohol the other the mixer

Just ask Chumlee.

The best I can do is $10. I've gotta make a living here.

This is a great invention.  You can put lime juice on one side and Irish cream on the other, and that way they won't mix until you're ready to drink.
 
2013-09-19 11:13:56 PM
I like them, but they're too small. If both sides were at least twelve ounces I'd get one or two. Of course is probably put the same beer in both sides.

For a black and tan or a black velvet or snakebite, I can it better with a spoon. And proper.

This. I hate guinness by itself, but I enjoy it layered over hard cider. It has a bit of sweetness in each sip, and by the time I'm tired of the taste of guinness I'm down to the cider.

This. Also, what's the point of having them separated if you're sipping them at the same time anyway? Why not just mix them together from the start?

i usually hate beer snob glasses. ( i use either a standard pint glass or a mason jar for my beer.... I figure if you can get your nose in it, you're getting all you need.) But i want one of these...

Why would you can a black and tan? It'll just get mixed up when you pour it out.

It actually is important to keep it separate until the last possible moment.. but for $35 a glass;BS! And, I've spent some money on bar-ware; stainless steel coolers, mixers, shakers, have a MINT condition portable bar from the 60's (holds 3 fifths, 4 glasses, mixer, strainer, etc..)  Last thing I bought was a case (called a case but comes in 36-count) of Chivas Regal etched lowball glasses with a matching glass ice bucket at same time.... STILL not interested in $35 per glass when I could just use two glasses that are nicer...

/to the guy mentioning hard cider.. DAMN YOU!!!!  lol Been looking everywhere to get some unpasteurized cider in my area since a local orchard closed down. Miss that stuff (already have yeast thinking I could surely find SOME this year)

Just because someone has to bring it up, "Black & Tans" was another name for the Royal Irish Constabulary Reserve Force. You don't want to go throwing that term around Ireland unless you're looking for a face full of mug.

When my father hit his 40's he brought home a pair of Tiffany champagne flutes for mom. We didn't have a lot of money so that was a big purchase for him.

I laughed because he had to purchase some kind of pipe cleaner just to clean the f*cking things. I think they used them twice.

Very, incredibly, amazingly narrow bottom that was just impossible to clean.

/The champagne was totally Korbel.

I don't enjoy ale one at a time. 2 would be 2 too many. If you can see your fingers around the other side of the glass, you're drinking piss.

And the term "black and tan" for a drink has been around since before the RICRF.

Not saying you should go around ordering black and tans in Ireland if you don't want trouble, but dammit the drink had that name first!

*IF* you're a Sam Adams fan, try this with their Cream Stout and Cherry Wheat. Very creamy, and knocks down the sweetness of the Cherry a bit while mitigating some of the bitterness of the stout; makes it more "beer-y" overall.

/IMHO, YMMV
//I know, I know, lots of Sam haters here. This is for those who aren't.
///learned this one from a couple of much older guys in the Sam aisle and tried it.
////Yes, it works better if you 'float' the Cherry Wheat over the Cream Stout as described several times above, rather than just mixing them.

There's Sam haters?  Really?  They make tons of delicious beers.  Not to mention they've won tons of awards.  Pretty sure their boston lager won worlds best lager a couple years back.

Actually, there's no standard way to do it.  Some places use fancy spoons like they're pouring absinthe, some deliberately mix the two.  As long as it's something that qualifies as stout mixed with something that qualifies as a bitters, that's it, and even if you replace the bitters with just a non-dark-colored liquid, that's usually good enough.

You'll occasionally get beer snobs who are convinced of the one true way, but they're just mistaking personal experience or personal preference as a mask for their ignorance.

And that's why glassblowers generally learn to work with borosilicate glass and make bongs. You would not believe what people will spend on a bong. It's like the people buying them are high on drugs or something.
