COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bearded Seal is a stronger, bolder version of traditional Dry Irish Stout, however not quite an Imperial Stout. Whereas other Dry Irish Stouts come in at less than 5% ABV, Bearded Seal comes in at 6.1% ABV., capturing the intensity of a higher ABV beer yet remaining drinkable and complex. Pleasant herbal character shines through from the generous hop addition playing off the rich coffee and chocolate notes. The flavor of this beer begins roasty and intense and then finishes soft and clean with a refreshingly smooth dry finish.

Draft to taster at brew pub pour opaque black with moderate tan head. Nose roasted malt,stale coffee, and slight soapy. Taste less off flavors initially, dark fruit, roast malt, and light bitter. Late in palate I get a hint of the soap again. I want to like it, but something just seems off

Draft. Awesome mouthfeel !! That nitro gives the proper creamy mouthfeel. Nice dry roasted texture. Notes of coffee grounds and dark grains, some coffee bitterness. Very nice and classic dry stout. Very nice and went well as a after pizza brew.

mmmbeer (1324) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2014
Shaker at the joint- served a near black color with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Hits the mouth with a big somewhat wide body, malt is just delicious, some note of smoke in the middle, finish is only lightly bittering and drying. Another one she liked.

Think head over a black body. Dark roasted malts, coffee and cream, fresh herbal hops. Smooth body, quite rich in taste actually, creamy mouth feel. Soft carbonation, really nicely drinkable palate. The above are age abv is worth it. Quality stuff. (On tap at the Pinthouse brewpub)
