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.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, yeast, and fruit. Taste is yeast, caramel malt, dark fruit, and a bit of chocolate. Nice and rich. Slight bitter aftertaste. Very good.

Currently drinking while typing. Once poured you have a great beer on front of you, great aromas of caramel, malt, toast and subtle booze. The look of it is also spotless, a full almost beige bubbly but creamy head sat on a beautiful mahogany depth in which light nicely but gently permeates. The taste is full, complex and clever. Starts with gentle hops and nice caramelled malts, also toasty and nutty, slows down into a nice burnt, smoky malt flavour with a lovely bitterness which surprises you. A nice but subtle hop note stays in the mouth in the long run. Great feel in the mouth, not thick or heavy but feels full and big, great carbonation that contains well in the mouth and also the foaminess that tickles the top lip. Exceptional beer, I think I will be missing it when the stock runs out until next autumn. Recommended!

Pours a dark brown with a full head. Aroma is full of caramel malty sweetness, yet it is balanced and not overly sweet with a nice kick of bitterness at the end. Excellent bock!

The caramel and brown sugar flavors accentuate the sweet character of this bock bier. The trappist character remains, however, with a bit of a dark fruit flavor. Dark brown, nice head.

fles 33 cl Kleur: Diep donker rood met een lichtbruine brede schuimkraag. Geur: Kruidig en zoet. Smaak: Licht zoet, maar ook bitter. Lekker nasmaak van gebrand mout. Redelijk veel koolzuur

Pours a dark brown body, with a big tan head. Aroma: Mostly malty. Taste: I can taste toffee and caramel which give it a sweet taste. It’s also malty. And it has a roasty medium finish, not too long....

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a dark brown, with an impressive offwhite head. Smells of bready yeast and malt, with actually a lot of metallic scent (oxidation, I’m guessing). Tastes a mild sweetness, with an even milder bitter follow. Some dried red fruit, with a hint of brown sugar and some spice. Plenty of metal in the taste too, but it only popped up after my first impressions -- this bottle was very likely unintentionally aged for way too long before I even got it. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Texture is pretty creamy. I’ll have to find a newer example for next time: this one hints at something that could be quite impressive.

lefossoyeur (501) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2012
Dark clear ruby brown with a thick creamy tan head that diminishes quickly leaving a good lace. Typical plummy bock aromas of munich malts, sundried raisins and plum jam. Full bodied, well balanced, all on the munich malts and finishing on a chocolate note. Nice bock.
