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.

tmoreau (3138) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Poured to an event shaker at the WCD Trade Expo in Chicago, showing a deep copper color, with a frothy layer of soft white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was caramel & toast, some ready alcohol, and esters as dried fruit, and a bit of cherry. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste added some earthy bitterness, a bit of citrusy astringency, subtle sweetness, and a somewhat dry finish. Alcohol poked it’s head out in the aroma, but remained rather hidden in the flavor. No matter,... tasty nonetheless.
