Style: Black & Tan
Style Information
The Black & Tan style is a broad category that is made from blending a pale ale with a dark beer. Usually, a stout or porter is used for the "black" portion of the blending. ABV can range widely based on the styles used in blending.

From Wikipedia:

Black and Tan is a drink made from a blend of pale ale, usually Bass Pale Ale, and a dark beer such as a stout or porter, most often Guinness. Sometimes a pale lager is used instead of ale; this is usually called a half and half. Contrary to popular belief, however, Black and Tan as a mixture of two beers is not a drink commonly consumed in Ireland. Indeed, the drink has image problems in parts of Ireland and elsewhere due to the association with the Royal Irish Constabulary Reserve Force which was sent into Ireland in the early 1920s and nicknamed the Black and Tans.
