After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear black and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a light roasted malty touch . This beer smells fruity.
