A Black and Blue beer drink is a brand-specific variation of the Black and Tan. Instead of a pale ale, Blue Moon (a whitbier) is the layer below the Guinness and adds a refreshing citrus note after the dark, dry stout is gone. Many bars that have stout on tap with a Black and Tan spoon attached to pour the Guinness over. But if you are pouring at home a bar spoon will work, the trick to the layers is a slow pour.
