    Your friend is right. Bass will work, but is much harder to float right for some reason. Wen you pour the second layer; tip the glass until it is a bout to spill. Then very slowly pour and gradually tip up the glass at the same time. If you pour and tip correctly, it should work everytime. Mmmmmm! Good!

    It is easy I taught a bar in Italy how to to it right (they were advertising them but they were just mixing the two). My friends and I got alot of free drinks that night.

    The tip is: slowly pour the guinness off the back side of a petite blond..err I mean a spoon. I prefer to bend mine into a comfortable position the spoon as well as the blond.

    If it felt good saying it...it was probably the wrong thing to say.

    Also; to make a black and white use Harp instead of Bass.

    Re: Black and Tan

    1) Get a Brütül, it makes the layering much easier than any other layering tool I have tried. Pictured below.

    2) Use stout in the "draught cans" IE the ones that contain the "widget" which is a ping pong ball looking thing that shoots extra air into the stout when you open the can. Do not use the new draught bottles as the "widget" in those is designed to shoot a little bit of air at a time over a long time to allow you to drink out of the bottle. When you get good at layering beers you won't need these special cans, and paying attention to the gravity of the beers can also make it easy. For beginners though these cans are great.

    3) When you pour the first beer (the tan), pour it in roughly to get it to foam up a LOT. Remove further gas by swirling the beer around, alternating directions.

    4) Don't wait for the first beer's head to die down, that will help to slow down the stout even more when you pour it in SLOWLY.

    This works for me...

    PS: Black & Tan is Guinness and Bass; Guinness and Harp is a Half and Half.

    A grocery store nearby has a decent selection of premium beers, I get it there. I have also tried their Raison D'Etre. I would love to try their 90 and 120 minute IPAs but haven't found em yet. If you check dogfish.com they have a listing of distributors by state, call the distributor to find out who in your area they distribute to..

    Dogfish Head is a great brewery. Very inventive, have yet to drink a bad brew. I have had the 120 minute IPA, and you are absolutely correct in that it will kick your butt;... but oh so tasty. Frank B

    Man, you guys are so lucky that you are able to purchase beer in a grocery store. PA is so ultra conservative in that way. It keeps the price of beer artificially high. I end up crossing the border into NY where I go to a CVS pharmacy to pick up 12 packs that cost as much as 6 packs do in PA.

    Two years ago a drove to Texas from PA. I couldn't believe it when I ventured into super Walmarts and saw the alcohol aisle. It was more akin to how they do it in Europe.

    For any North Carolinians out there, I suggest Red Oak and Guiness...a local bar here calls it a Black Widow...mmmmm Dogfish rocks, but I too have only had the 60 min IPA...for some reason, as long as the stupid alcohol laws exist in my state, I won't be seeing anything much more potent than that.

    I avoid Super Walmart beer now. Maybe its just my location, but the beer is skunked almost ever time.
