Drank on: March 18, 2014

Location: Made this at home to enjoy with corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and Irish soda bread.

Notes: I kind of had an idea on how this was made. You pour the pale ale in first and then pour the Guinness over a spoon. A bit of it went along the back part of the spoon and onto the counter top. I ended up looking at a video to see what I was doing incorrectly. They tilted the spoon a little more at an angle then I had.

Found this tidbit of advice when looking up the drink: It is not recommended to order in Ireland. Apparently some natives feel the drink name is a bit offensive due to a violent part of history in the 1920’s. The British uniforms wore black & tan and put down the Irish in the failed Easter Uprising. (Look it up if you want to know more)
