3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Yorktown. Served in a chalice a cloudy brown amber with a thin creamy off white head. Sweet aromas of plums and brown sugar with a touch of yeast and alcohol coming through. Lively carbonation. Roses and brown sugar malts in the front with an approaching spice, grass, and herbal hop. Finishes bitter with drying herbal hops. I really enjoyed this one.

Cask at the pub. Scent is alcohol, chocolate, bready. Appears dark brown with thing off-white head, reddish hues. Complex flavor, chocolate, dark fruit with a dry malty bitterness. Smooth creamy cask palate really lends itself to this brew.

On tap at Rock Bottom in Yorktown. Rock Bottom Yorktown Pierrot Bière de Garde is a hazy/muddy mahagony color with a soft caramel/off-white head. The aroma is very light and all noticeable hints are creamy. The flavor is earthy with sweet fruits and an underlining hint of alcohol. The finish is lingering but enjoyable.
