Advent Beer Calendar 2007: Day 15: St. Nikolaus Bock

St. Nikolaus BockToday’s pick is St. Nikolaus Bock, from Pennsylvania Brewing in Philadelphia. Penn Brewing specializes in German style beers, and their Christmas brew is a rich 6% alcohol Bock:

A very rich, dark bock beer. Dark ruby in color with subtle tones of chocolate and burnt malt. It will warm you on a cold winter night and brighten your days. The perfect holiday gift for the beer drinker.

The brewery is also producing a special Brewer’s Reserve batch of St. Nikolaus, bottled in 25 ounce bottles and presented in a velvet bag. Now that is something I’d like to find under the tree come Christmas morning!
