Default Black and Tan combinations

So what is your favorite combination of homebrew recipes for making Black and Tans? I know that the obvious would be a Guinness clone and a Bass clone, or Harp clone.

What other interesting combinations have you come up with?

Maybe a porter instead of a stout?
There is speculation that the Black and Tan started with porters, not stouts...

and what about the tan?
I was thinking of something like the Haus Pale...

The Black Moon combination of Guinness and Blue Moon sounds interesting...

Years ago at the now closed Rosehill Alehouse, we'd make Black & Tans using Guiness and Deschutes Mirror Pond. Made a pretty tasty combo.

Rosehill, as in Kirkland???
I lived in both Redmond and Kirkland, used to drive over Rosehill all the time.

That's the place. I used to work in Kirkland and lived in Redmond. I think I was their every night.

I still talk to Kerry every once in a while.

Where were/are they at on Rosehill? I last lived up there in the early 1990's, and for some reason I don't remember them. Were they even around back then?

Ahh... just looked it up... isnt that just past where Waldo's was/is ???

Guinness and Blue moon (i called it a Black & Blue) was quite terrible i must say, the only reason we made it was because at a bar i frequent one night they have $6 Guinness and Blue moon pitchers....although i may be a bit biased because i'm not a big fan of either beers...

I've had a Black Magic which was Guinness and Magic Hat #9 which was ok...and i've had a black and gold which is yuengling porter and yuengling premium, that was pretty good

It was just east of Waldo's on NE 85th. It's now called Pub 85 and the beer lineup is nowhere near as good as the Rosehill Alehouse used to be.

There's a pub in Minneapolis named O'Donovan's that I've gotten black & tans made with Murphy's Stout and Amber. Very delicious.
