BURLINGTON, VT. — Ben & Jerry’s has created new Black & Tan ice cream — real cream stout ice cream swirled with chocolate ice cream, topped off with a foamy stout ice cream head.
"Some may say that beer and ice cream don’t go together, but we think the combination of deep, dark chocolate and the creamy stout flavor is the perfect marriage of tastes," said John Shaffer, Ben & Jerry’s brewmaster. "The challenge was finding an extract that would deliver on the taste of stout. We searched far and wide and found the perfect ingredient that meets the authentic flavor of a European stout beer."
Ben & Jerry’s Black & Tan is made with non-alcoholic stout extract from Europe and is available in pint size.
