Pours pitch black with a thin white head and a decent retention. Yeast smells hit you first. First sip is full of toasted coffee beans and malt. Carbonation is strong and the aftertastes of dark chocolate and wine linger all over the mouth.

I reckon it's approximately 30 years since I last had this beer and I'm delighted that it's still the malty coffee tasting cracker that I vaguely remember.
