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.

huineman (422) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2015
Pours dark maroon with abundant tan head. Aroma is high: caramel, biscuit, butterscotch, vanilla, orange, a hint of strawberry. Creamy, with marked sourness, metallicity and bitterness. Long finish with aftertones of biscuit. Very nice.

NikkTwist (2048) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Draft at Bierstube. Very dark brown pour with a lasting slim foamy white ring. Sweet burnt caramel toffees. Chocolate liquorice. Wood tannins. Black cherry cordials. Clear candy toys. Glossy mouthfeel. Darkly sweet but not cloying. Feels much more Belgium than German.

Hamirubi (326) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2015
33cl bottle at home, shared with a friend. An uncompromising dark bock beer with full body and lovely head on top. It has a smoked aroma on a well balanced sweet bitter caramel mouth. Lightly spiced and raisin, vanilla, dark fruit flavours. Rather strong for a 7 percent alcohol brew.

Robe brune, légèrement ambrée. Mousse bien. Saveurs de malt torréfié, fumé, fruits noirs, houblon et levure. Beaucoup d’esters. Arrière goût café, légèrement vanillé. Texture épaisse, carbonatation fine. Longue en bouche. Une bonne bock.

rondphoto (2938) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 1, 2015
on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Clear, very dark brown, beige head cover, full lace curtain. Taste is crisp caramel malt that adds toffee and light spice as it moves through the palate, adding enough mild hops at the end to keep it under control. The back end of the finish brings back toffee and fizz. Simple, and enjoyable.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2015
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a taster. Pours a cloudy amber with an off-white head that laces the glass and leaves some bubbles and film behind. Notes of banana, brown sugar, earth, leaves, caramel, candi sugar, and dried fruits. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel that finishes dry. Good dunkler bock.

Medium offwhite creamy head with larger bubbles. Dark red body. Light, roasty licorice aroma. Taste is deep, intense sweet roastiness with licorice notes. Very harmonic and balanced. Dry licorice aftertaste. Hoppy notes, and a touch of coffee
