COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Connor’s Stout is a nitrogenated draught stout that is brewed not blended. It is 5% ABV and served with a creamy foam head. Black in colour, the taste is smooth and balanced. Inspired by the original recipe gathered across Europe, the recipe is concocted in consultation with our International technical experts but brewed locally so that the pricing to consumers is competitive.

ALLOVATE (2652) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2015
Cola brown and bright with ruby highlights. Thick and lasting nitrogenated head daubs the glass well. Aroma of rust, dust and sodden topsoil with hints of aniseed, ash and wood. Taste is slightly sour with an astringent, grape skin peak and earthy finish. Weedy with a hint of cola. Smoky, burnt bamboo skewers. Creamy, medium bodied and smooth and thick in the finish. Soft alkaline and chalkiness to it. Long lasting tannins. Bitter chocolate and roasted coffee bean resides. I love this stout, or maybe it was just the months of shoddy Vietnamese and Cambodian lagers that made this taste great. Virtually staggered out of this bar after far too many pints. (Colonial bar, Annexe Central Market. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) 3.8

Cantabrian (953) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 25, 2014
On tap at one of the downtown Harry’s in Singapore (I visited four other Harry’s before finding this stout, which figures on all their units’ menus, if you check online). Unfortunately it was flat, but I’m sure it could be a great stout. Thick syrupy black, with a pungent aroma of dark soy sauce, dark chocolates and caramels, plenty of spicy kicks on the flavour, with marmite, soy sauce, molasses and liquorice sitting on a thin dark cocoa backbone. Difficult to evaluate the palate as there was hardly any head, but it is syrupy enough. I’d make it much more of a Foreign Stout, based on its flavour profile.

Scopey (9380) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Keg at Brussels Beer Cafe, KL. It pours black with a thick, creamy beige head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, cocoa acidity and general creaminess. The taste is smooth, roasty, some acidity, toast, light bitterness and coffee.....not a lot else really! Pretty drying on the finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Guinness clone for sure. Not bad, just very basic stuff.

Looks like a pint of Guinness. Aroma of roast malt, some fruity sweetness. Medium body, flavour of the aroma, some dark chocolate with a dry, bitter finish.

On tap in KL. Enjoyable, but not too exciting. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, and roast. Taste is sweet, with average length. Palate has a creamy initial feel, but the body is thin. Black, with a frothy head.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Draft at the Brussels Beer Cafe, Kuala Lumpur. Dark brown pour and a frothy head. Its a typical stout in its appearance. However, if you are expecting it to taste like a typical stout you might be surprised. It’s quite malty and light with a hint of bitterness. I found it quite refreshing actually and when served cool it seems to suit the Asian climate. I won’t be coming to Asia especially to drink this beer, but I could be tempted to order another in preference to a Guinness so I guess that’s quite a decent recommendation. Having said that, hardened fans of the black stuff would probably turn their noses up at this imposter! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (3678) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2012
25cl on tap at Brussel Beer Cafe, KL. Black with a creamy light brown nitro head. Quite strange herbal aroma with mint dominates over the malt and caramel. Very little roasted aroma. Strange stout, herbal with a light bitterness in the finish. A bit watery. (2012-05-05)

On tap in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Black, creamy light beige head. Aroma of some soft sweet fruits, hard roasted malts, chocolate. Flavour is medium sweet, light malty, roasted malts, hint of coffee, chocolate, light bitterness. It’s a bit watery, but decent.
