Connor’s Iconic Shake Ritual
Connor’s Stout Porter and its “shake before opening” ritual are already familiar to stout fans. With the new smaller 320ml can, though, fans can now more conveniently enjoy the draught stout experience anywhere.
As for Connor’s famous three-step shake ritual, it’s simply:
- Chilled a can to between 5° to 8°C.
- Shake the can till there is no sloshing sound.
- Pour the stout at 45° into a suitable class, relax, and watch the creamy, dreamy foam head form.
It’s that straightforward. And fun! Video here!
As for taste, I feel Connor’s Stout Porter has a balanced profile that’s smooth and with roasted caramel notes. Brewed from a mix of premium malts that includes lager malt, caramel malt, brown malt and roasted barley, it’s neither too herby, bitter, nor strong. By the way, the recipe is inspired by an original British one from the 1700s.
And oh, the creamy, buttery foam has distinct whiffs of coffee-ish fragrance, which (IMO) kinda go well with the initial bitter kick.
If you a coffee fan, I think you’d doubly love Connor’s wonderful brew.
The Draught Stout Experience
Each Connor Stour Porter can is double-dosed with nitrogen to achieve that creamy, ultra-smooth head. Shake the can right and there will be a mesmerizing cascading effect to enjoy too.
