Which beer goes on top in a Black and Tan?

Black & Tan This layered beer drink made of half stout (generally Guinness) and half pale ale (often Bass) works because the stout is less dense than the ale, so it floats atop the lighter-colored beer, creating a two-tone pint that's the obvious source of the drink's name.

Do you mix Black and Tan before drinking?

- The layering of a Black and Tan -- that is the dark stout floating above the lighter beer -- is said to be common only in American bars. When you begin drinking the beers will mix anyway, so some places choose to let them mix as they are poured. The stout will remain on top.
