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

A very nice style. Pours dark brown with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, brown sugar, some nuts and spice. Tastes malty, bocky, with a complex finish comprised of toffee, nuts, cinnamon, and brown sugar.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 A very enjoyable Bock which is more flavorful than the other beers in the sampler pack. The beer is flavorful and smooth all at the same time. It could use more in the flavor department because not much sets it apart from other Bocks.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Light caramel molasses malty aroma, bit of smoke and chocolate. Light hoppiness. Medium dark brown clear, with thin lacing head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Starts with mild chocolate caramel maltiness and mild hoppy acidity. Maltiness throughout, though not overly sweet. Hops are fruity though dull. Mild bitterness in the finish, still some sweetness of caramel or molasses. After has some carbonic acidity and light sweetness. Decent bock, but kinda weak.

Only brewed for a short time around christmas. A hearty mouthfeel, taste of carmel, chocolate and alcohol. I have had it on tap and in a bottle. Its best on tap. If you like a dark beer thats rich on flavor you just gotta have this.

Bottle. I had this for the first time at the 2002 beer exchange. Thanks JZ. This one pours nice and dark amber with a spicy nose and a great spicy malty caramel flavor. Good solid body and mouthfeel with a nice finish of solid malts an bitterness that falls into a peppery spice. Good stuff, as always from Penn.

A dark purple color when poured with thin white head. Goes down extremely smooth, slight alcohol flavor, and a little spice at the end. A great beer.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Pours a brownish purplely color, a little transparent, with a nice amount of froathy tan head. Aroma is very very sweet and malty, I would say almost a sweet raisin smell. Taste is very very sweet and malty with some spiciness and gingerbread taste. Some alcohol flavor. Very heavy on the palate. Overall, a good winter warmer, but not something I could take a lot of due to the sweetness. Should definitely serve slightly below room temp.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Appearance: a bright plummy color, with a short, slight head above. Aroma: Super-fat malt at the forefront, thick, rich, sweet, wow!, loaded with character, slightly spicy, quite a treat. Taste: considerable heft on the palate, again, rich, malty, spicy, chock full of dark fruits, cherries, berries,raisins, etc., plus a yeasty bready quality. Quite a kicky ginger cookie weve got here, just the thing to make the jolly old man pleased as holiday punch. Medium to full body, with a long, lingering finish, sits happily on the palate, gets comfortable, provides a spicy, fruity blend of pleasure with every sip.
