Old Fountain. Opaque dark brown beer, small tan head. Palate is soft and airy. Not much carbonation but it has a nice mouthfeel. Mellow soft dark malt. Touch of sour dark chocolate and super mild coffee. Whisper of fruit underneath. Semi dry finish with a mild bitter aftertaste and tang. Nice soft stout.
