What’s the correct way to make a Black and Tan?
So here pictured, you’ll see two ways of making a black and tan. One, on the right, started with black, the Guiness Stout, and then, the tan was poured in afterward.
The one on the left was made with the lighter beer filling the glass, a Beck’s lager in this case, and the black (Guiness) being poured slowly into it.
If I had a video camera, you could watch the cloud-like foam rising in the glass, the one on the left just sitting there. If there was such a thing as a smellora, you could also smell the Guiness rising to the top. Black first, then tan. That’s the way to go.
