COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Until the 19th century, St. Nikolaus was a tall, stern, patriarch in bishops robes. Then he became a sky-riding, jolly old elf. He may be a milk-and-cookies kind of guy today, but he knows what you want and its this St. Nikolaus Bock Bier. Its rich, dark and full-bodied, brewed with a variety of roasted and chocolate malts. Celebrate the holidays with St. Nikolaus. Hes in this bottle. Gee, we hope youve been good this year. 15

Excellent tasting beer. Smooth. Decent ABV at 6%. I searched the city of Pittsburgh in late winter trying to find more, came up short. Finally got a 12-pack to-go at Penn Brewery restaurant. Nice labeling on bottle also. I will ration till next winter and only share with the closest of friends. Best Bock I have had.

Enjoyable bock bear. Easy to drink though nice chocolate note. Declares itself as a lager but has nice body.

JStax (6137) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a lager glass. The beer is a clear brown with no head, except for a few bubbles around the edge of the glass. The aroma has raisin, caramel, toffee, chocolate. The taste is moderately sweet, it has some bitterness toward the backend. Light to medium body and low to moderate carbonation.

NikkTwist (3102) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Draft at Bierstube. Hazy very dark copper brown pour. Frothy tan head. Has a full body and the proper flavors for a Christmas brew but feels WAY too mild. Raisin prune spice cake. A chunky faint brown sugar ghost of a better beer. Suspect there are oatmeal stout elements here that fill the palate yet hide the flavors.
