3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Yorktown brewpub, and dispensed to a chalice with a cloudy, reddish brown hue, a good amount of silky, light tan foam to the head, and curtainy lacing that turned web-like as the beer warmed. The aroma was toasty, cocoa, a touch of wood/smoke, and a little tartness. The flavor added more complexity with notes of spice, dark fruit, and lurking alcohol. Nicely crafted, Tim.

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.

mahogoney pour with minimal bubblage for head. nose was realy shallow, I was slightly clogged but it didn’t seem to be affecring me before this brew. sugary sweet with notes of raisin and caraamel but subdued. flavor similar but left a bitter almost rooty flavor going down. very drinkable.

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.
