Danish Royal Stout
Yes you read that correctly. Danish Royal Stout from Malaysia! When I first got my latest workschedule and saw that Kuala Lumpur was one of the layover cities I got excited. It then got removed from my roster and I thought the opportunity was gone. Kuala Lumpur has since then appeared on my roster 2 times just to be removed again. But the fourth time it appeared it stayed on and I arrived in Malaysia early this morning. I got excited since I’ve never been to Malaysia or Kuala Lumpur and that I’ve never had a Malaysian beer. I of course did some quick research and found out that Anchor Smooth and Danish Royal Stout are the two most popular beers brewed in Malaysia. Further research found out that Anchor Smooth is registered as brewed in Singapore on Untappd as it is brewed by Heineken Asia Pacific who are headquartered in Singapore (but also brews in Malaysia). I therefor decided to go for the Danish Royal Stout.
The beer is dark brown/black in colour with a thick brown foam head. It tastes of coffee and has a pleasant roastiness to it. Finishes on a chocolate sweet note with a long lasting aftertaste. A very nice surprise as I wasn’t expecting too much! If you’re ever in Malaysia this is a nice local choice.
