I picked up some Molson Golden a few weeks ago. Its taste is kind of like Heineken with a slight skunky flavor. Not everyone's taste but I like it. Turns out that it works well as a light colored top layer to some heavier dark colored beers.
I received an email from a customer in Singapore wanting to know if the layering tool worked with Guinness Extra Stout. I told her that I didn't know but that it probably did. I hadn't tried Extra Stout in the past because I hadn't liked its stronger taste. Anyway, the next chance I got, I bought some Extra Stout to try and found that it worked well. See my three experiments below.
I'm also now starting to like the Extra Stout flavor... ;)
Michael from Portland, Oregon sent in a great example of a Black Rogue layered beer. A nice thing about layered beers is that it's easy to make two glasses for sharing.

Thanks for the great picture Michael!
I found two Guinness Draught combinations with outstanding black and tan layer definition.
Finally had the chance to make a "Black Hoe" which is Guinness Draught over Hoegaarden Wit. With the very light colored Hoegaarden Wit and the dark Guinness, it makes a great black and tan combination.
Apologies for the poor picture. Had some camera finger problems that day :(
