Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Divide lager beer evenly between 2 tall beer glasses.

  • Working with one glass at a time, place a large tablespoon, dome-side up, 1 inch or so above lager beer, with the tip of the spoon pointed slightly downward.

  • Slowly pour 1/2 of the stout beer over the tablespoon so it gently pours down the side of the glass in a thick trickle. Allow to stand until 2 distinct layers of beer form, 3 to 5 seconds. Repeat with the remaining glass of beer.
