The precise combination of Bass Pale Ale and stout resulted in a flavor like no other. Its popularity quickly spread throughout Britain and Ireland, ultimately reaching the United States. In America, the drink has become a staple in pubs from Boston to San Francisco and everywhere in between.
So toast history as you pour yourself a Black & Tan. But remember-it'll need Bass' distinctive caramel notes with hints of nuts and plum to make it an authentic Black & Tan.
