Bottom is 11 lb Hammer, aged to perfection. Top one is Guinness. I haven't ventured into stouts yet, but I'm game.

ok, i like gear sort of stuff as much as the next guy (although my fetish is with ski/climbing gear), but c'mon, this thing takes all the skill out of making black and tans, wahts wrong with a spoon? BTW my mom, who taught me how to make 'em, happens to make the best freakin black and tan in the world. if everyone had one of these how would a mother pass down the skill of making black and tans to her eldest son?
