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.

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.
