Beer 46 – Penn Brewery St Nikolaus Bock Bier – Brewers Reserve

Style: Bock

Purchased at: 3 Sons

What makes this beer different: Not sure its just damn good

Will I be drinking this again: I would like to but unfortunately Penn Brewery shut down.

Grade: A

12/24/2009: Penn Brewery is one of two excellent craft breweries in my home city of Pittsburgh; the other being East End Brewing. Penn had some money problems earlier this year that caused them to shut down their restaurant, and cease brewing on site. The beer brewing moved to a company outside of Wilkes-Barre.

Enough about the history and onto the beer. This stuff is REALLY good, especially for being a year old. You get hints of cherry, cinnamon, nutmeg, and finishes off with a strong caramel taste. All the flavors blend together perfectly. Hops are nowhere to be found. I really hope that next year Penn can get their money situation back in order so they can brew more of this stuff. If you come across this, buy it as it may never be brewed again.
