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.

Poured on tap at Yorktown. Pours a hazy deep nut brown with smalle but pretty offwhite head. Initial taste a bit boozy and strong. Deep dark malts take over with a bit of a belgian spiciness. Still, I feel the malts pervade. Chocolate, vanilla, caramel (Like a sundae) notes linger on the tounge as the backend takes a a still strong taste. An interesting brew, but either too strong in the malt or not balanced properly. Decent, but mainly for its impressive flavors.

Draft... DLD’08... Muddy, brown ale with a large, frothy, white head. The nose is all cookie and cocoa with unidentified spiciness and grains. Full-bodied with a sandy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Fairly well-balanced, but leans a touch on the bitter side. Earthy, grainy, moderately bitter finish.

On tap at RB – Yorktown. Poured deep caramelly-brown with a shorter cap of deeper off-white head. The aroma picked up deeper fruity notes with clove spicage.. sweet overall feel with a dry, grainy undertone.. dry, mulled candi sugar gave the final impression. The flavor had sweeter candi sugar and plums with caramel and more fruit at the core.. light chocolate and aged caramel toward the back with sharp, spicy, peppery alcohol at the finish.. solid. Medium-plus bodied with heavier carbonation and sharp notes at the back.. OK balance.. meh.

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.
