“This is a St. Patrick's Day staple at our house. Don't be fooled by the simple ingredients...The trick is getting them to layer just right. The key is to pour the stout SLOWLY. Enjoy!”

Directions

  1. Gently pour half the lager beer into a tall beer glass. Place a large tablespoon, dome side up, an inch or so above the lager beer, with the tip of the spoon pointed slightly downhill. Slowly pour half the stout beer over the tablespoon, so the stout gently pours down the side of the glass in a thick trickle. Allow to stand a few seconds so 2 distinct layers of beer form.

One of my husband's favorites (a bit on the heavy side for me though). He always uses Guinness and changes out the lager according to how he feels, but often uses Eye of the Hawk. There is a cute little gadget on the market for making these called a Black & Tan Turtle, it sits on the rim of the glass and you simply pour the stout over it. Unnecessary when you can use a spoon, but it's cute nonetheless.

I use an absinthe spoon. More manageable. Smithwick's is better. I use Extra Stout; more robust.

One of my most favorite bar drinks! I never knew how to make this at home so for me it was always one of those "order when I'm out" kind of drinks. Now, I know how. You're a rockstar! Thanks, Christina!
