Cask on a few occasions now. It pours deep amber with medium beige head. The nose is caramel, hazelnut, earth, wood and some leather. The taste is sweet hazelnut, caramel, plain chocolate, wood, earth, leather, dark fruit and faint vanilla. Medium body and soft carbonation. Flavoursome, well balanced and rather drinkable. The pumpkin spice version still pips this to the post.

Old Fountain. Hazlenut version. Light haze on this amber beer. Little pale tan head. Smooth palate, a little soft. Mild carbonation. Soft malt. sweet hazlenuts. Whisper of something chocolate. Sweet candy fruits before the neutral finish and a trace of bubblegum ester. Interesting and tasty.
