St. Nikolaus Bock Bier

12 oz single from a recent trade.
In a nutshelll a very simple and nice example of the style with a slight twist.
Pour gives a mahogany based body with a reserved head but some nice lace.
The nose has a twang, perhaps from the spice notes that may (or may not) be present, and a touch of alcohol. Malts start to come through even in the aroma.
The tastes are typical for the style with malts taking the lead,. Quite smooth with a little bit of orange peel. The finish brings a touch of bitterness which may be the citrus peel, may be the alcohol or may be remnants of some hop presence.
Mouthfeel is not big, but nor should it be. There’s some light carbonation which is a bit prickly.
Good stuff, enjoyable and a nice winter beer.
