A Black and Tan spoon is a must-have for every bar and home bar owner with a well-rounded tool collection. Designed specifically for the Black & Tan (Half & Half, Black Velvet, or any layered drink), these spoons allow you to gently pour a stout above a layer of beer, dispersing the flow to reduce mixing between the layers. To use, fill the bottom half of your glass with lager, ale or other non-stout beer. Use the spoon's groove to rest it on the rim of the glass, and pour the stout evenly over the center of the spoon. This spoon comes complete with a handy chain.
