On tap at Pinthouse Pizza- Burnet St in Austin, TX.

This one pours a fairly dark black color, with a small white head and lots of lacing.

This smells like roasted malt, lactose, and dark chocolate.

This is a fairly simple and straightforward dry stout, but it’s done well. The body is nice for the style, with a good dry roasted character, some bitter hops, slight creamy lactose, and just a hint of wispy smoke.

This is lighter bodied, but crisp and clean and creamy, with a dry finish.

This is no frills and very tasty.

Only an average beer in my opinion, but not offensive. Their other brews will be more exciting to the craft beer drinker. Here is a detailed description from Pinthouse Pizza website: "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."
