I wouldn't mind trying a little. I knew someone once who liked Stout floats. I don't know if I could have a lot of it but it does sound tempting.
Dude- You think that ice cream is going to have enough IBUs for ya???

There was an article in the paper where they are going to pull it because they were told they were being insensitive to use of the name since it infers the real Black & Tan group in England which is not liked.

If you want it for sovenior purposes you'd better hurry because they're pulling it from the shelves!

Sounds good, but generally chugging beer and slurping up ice cream do a number on my stomach.
Every little thing is gonna be alright.

Uh, the ingrediants dont even list any beer. It must be stout flavored.

Why are they pulling the product?

Somebody is whining that bad people used to (about a hundred years ago) use the name "Black & Tan", so no one can ever use the term again for anything or they'll hold their breath until they turn green. So, no more Black & Tans at your local, either.

I am SO sick of whiners!

I've made beer floats before. A friend picked up some Vanilla Porter and we decided to put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a small glass and then add the porter.

It was very, very good!

I wouldn't drink like that on a regular basis, but it would make a nice desert.

Above is a link to the story about the Black and Tan complaints.

They seem to be coming from one guy who has a blog about junk food.

Nice free advertiseing for him (and B&J)

The article does not say that B&J are pulling the product.

I love chocolate malts, so if it's anything like that I'm in. Otherwise it sounds...not that good to me.
