COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also known as a dark Farmhouse Ale, this Franco-Belgian Style Bière de Garde is mahogany in color with a complex spicy, fruity aroma. Imported Belgian malts and yeasts provide flavors of dark fruit, semi sweet chocolate, toasted biscuit, and subtle hazelnut, while Sterling hops lend a spicy balance.

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.

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 the brewpub: Deep amber in color with aromas of spicy red fruit, caramel, herbs and hazelnut. The palate seemed to show off some hops especially in the dry finish.

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.
