COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique seasonal product is the world’s only Trappist bock ale. Brewed exclusively with natural ingredients, this ale post-ferments slightly in its bottle. It has a deep red colour, an intensely rich taste, and a malty aroma. Aromatic hop varieties and types of burnt malt render this ale its delicate bitterness that blends surprisingly well with its slightly sweet undertone.

La Trappe Bock has 7% ABV.

On tap @ Cafe Servaas. 1 year old. Murky brown with a medium diminishing brown head and good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, earthy notes, light spiciness and some fruitiness. Taste is moderately sweet and spicy with caramel, earthy notes and light fruitiness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Earthy finish. Tasty. Well executed.

330ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Pours a brown cloudy color with a huge bubbled and persistent head that dissipates slowly leaving some lacings around S: The better part. Very sweet, fruity and bready. Brown sugar, caramel malts, raisins and plums. Yeasts. Mild perfume of hops. A bit of alcohol in the end. BTW, it does not smell like a Bock beer T: Pretty much like the nose. Sweet upfront. Brown sugar caramel malts, dark fruits. Strong on earthy yeasts reminding a brown bread. Nice light and dry bitter end M: Medium creamy body. Not much molasses. Medium carbonation. A bitter-sweet beer O: Don’t expect a traditional Bock Beer here. In fact, I think that the idea behind it was producing a Bock keeping the characteristics of a Trappist. I like it and really recommend it [ BA Review @ 6/1/2011 ]

Bottle. Didn’t take proper tasting notes. Nice bock, not too sweet with a dominant roasty and earthy aroma.

Donkerrood bier met cremekleurige schuimkraag. Geur van gebrande mout, chocola en gedroogd fruit. Smaak: gebrande mout, chocola, gedroogd fruit. Een lekkere bittere afdronk. Een bockbier met een heerlijke volle smaak, een van de betere bockbiertjes die ik dit jaar heb geproefd.

for a Trappists I expected a bolder beer. This is quite subtle maybe even lacking personality. Still a good bock. Nice deep red with a huge head. Pleasant carbonation. Flavor of roasted malts yeast and some floral notes. I appreciate it is not sweet and has some nice hop bitterness.
