Went to a pub yesterday that introduced me to a "black and blue" - a mix of guiness and blue moon. It was quite tasty. I happened to have a lightly oaked oatmeal stout and a fresh belgian wit, so I tried the combo at home. Quite delicious and refreshing. I recommend it if you have a stout and a belgian wit in your stash.

I just read this and had a wit and stout on tap...had to try it. It's pretty funny because the head is white but the beer is dark It really isn't bad...I think the stout kicks the wit in the pants a bit as far as flavor but it tastes like some kind of girl scout cookie...maybe I'll start adding wheat to my stouts

Or, hmmm (I think I'm coming up with an idea for my brew list...), what about a stout brewed with coriander seed, bitter orange peel, and a Belgian yeast strain? (And perhaps a handful of wheat thrown in for good measure as Teromous suggested...)
Packaged: Fruitcake Old Ale
Primary: 15 Min Pale Ale (Waimea hops), Unoriginal clone (hoppy session mead)
Secondary: Why do I keep this line here...?
Bulk Aging: Simple Cyser '15, Cocobochet, Wild Cider (2014 & 2015)
Planned: So many ideas, not enough time to brew them....
