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.

Bottle from Blackhearts & Sparrows. Very nice malty beer. Aromas of burnt caramel, and chocolate. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Bruges. Rated on 15.07.2010
Aroma is somewhat malty with raisins and syrypy notes. Flavour is somewhat sweet and syrupy with malt, some roasted notes and brown sugar. A bit too sweet but not bad anyway.

Finn (6180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Flaske 0,33l fra Alko Muonio. Drukket hjemme 3 Des 12. Dyp brunrød. Pent & høyt skum som varer en god stund og etterlater mønster på glasset. God, litt søt fruktaroma. Fløyelsmyk munnfølelse. Smaken litt krydder. Litt for søt - men bra. Avslutter litt tørt.

thirstyrabbit (1698) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 27, 2012
Small bottle. Cloudy copper body, medium beige head. Aroma has sweet caramel with some spices and toffee. Taste has roasty malts with dried fruit and some yeast. Good mouthfeel. Finish is bitter but it’s kept in balance with the yeastiness and the dried fruit tastes. The first La Trappe out of the bunch that manages to exceed my expectations.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
In short: A roasty juicy brown ale lacking personality. Just ok.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed a few months after receiving it from private importation.
The look: Brown body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is very roasted, estery, a bit phenolic, toasted fruit cake. Taste is roasted grainy cereals, dark and red berries, brown sugar cookies, some caramel, yeast, peanut shells, earthy notes, nougat, tobacco, ginger-like spiciness. A rather juidy body with sparse bubbles. Nothing wrong with the list of flavor elements, however when all put together it was missing something. Muted, “dark”, unexpressive. Not a bad beer, just very forgettable. I rarely like a beer from La Trappe, not sure what my problem is with this brewery. I’m entering this rating on dec 22 2012, apparently yesterday the world was supposed to end because of some Mayan calendar, I don’t know what this is all about, I don’t pay much attention to calendars that don’t have bikinis.

emartell (339) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 21, 2012
Aroma agradable y bien llevado. Dulce y ligeramente acaramelizado, maltas tostadas y un poco de café. Notas frutales, principalmente uvas y pasas. Ligeras notas a nuez. Color obscuro con ciertos matices rojizos y rubis a contra luz. Carbonatación prácticamente nula, cuerpo medio. Cabeza de espuma de largar retención y buena estructura, En boca suave, con un buen equilibrio entre dulzor inicial y final amargo. Al paladar su inicio es suave y elegante, cremoso. Sabores frescos y frutales ( manzana) con cierto final citrico. Final medio, seco con ligero amargor. En resumen una cerveza estilo bock agradable, cremosa, elegante, bien estructurada, disfrutable. Con un equilibrio bien logrado que permite equilibrar dulzor y amargon de principio a fin.
