I recently found a new porter from Lakewood Brewing; their Holiday Bonus Festive Porter. I thought, great!, a new dark beer to try layering with.
Well my first attempt was a failure when I tried the porter on top of Franconia Wheat. The Franconia Wheat beer was my go-to bottom beer but not anymore. The porter immediately dropped down into the wheat and mixed. This told me that the porter was denser than the wheat. A few days later I tried pouring the wheat over the porter and it worked great.
Jan 24, 2016 Update: In using up the last of my Lakewood Holiday Bonus beer, I found two more great layered beer combinations. One with a Sam Adams and another with a Shiner Birthday Beer. See pictures below.
