Default Beyond Black and Tan

Does anyone else experiment with pouring two different beers together? I've found that IPA's and Browns mix well and taste great together. Today I tried Terrapin India Brown and Fort Collins Retro Red. It worked for me. Actually, the first time I tried this was when I got to the end of my corny of Lagunitas IPA clone. I only had enough for half a glass, so I topped it off with Terrapin India Brown and thought, man I wish I had brewed that.

I had my first ever Black and Tan the other day. Bell's Hopslam and Dogfish Head World Wide Stout. The combination led to a very unique beer. Pretty good actually. Lots of dark fruity notes.

I put the last few swallows of a strong bourbon ale into a pale ale once. It was... interesting.

I prefer a Black and Blonde (Stout and Lager) to a Black and Tan.

An "Eclipse" is also tasty, it's Belgian Wit and Stout.

It would be interesting to know what DID NOT work together, and possibly why...

I've been on a Bee Cave Porter/Graff mix lately as both are kegged up and taste delicious together.

I always try and mix a lot of my beers just to see. Most don't work out, but the ones that do are awesome.
