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.

SeanMacGC (332) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle, 33cl. Pours dark translucent mahogany, with decent slightly beige head. Sweet malts, chocolate and caramel to the nose, and similarly rich on the palate with the addition of ripe fruits. Very well balanced and blended, and overall a very quaffable Trappist beer.

Vaiz (3143) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2009
Pours dark amber to red with a thick foamy to creamy head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and a bit alcohol. Wonderful taste that starts bitter and hoppy with sweetness and malt kicking in just a bit later, very well balanced. Finish is long, dry and bittersweet. Good carbonation and a creamy texture. Love this.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2009
Mild but complex aroma of sweet spices, toasted nuttiness and a little warming alcohol. The flavour also has alcohol and some gentle caramel and toastedness. Warming and nicely complex but a little dull.

teddybeer (2097) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 15, 2009
Tap 30cl trappist cup. Toasted head and brwn colour; with caramel aroma. Sweetness to the palate. From my point of view it is not a real bock but a "special" trappist beer. Easy to drink and favourable to finish the night...

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 11, 2009
(750 ml bottle (2007) from 1828 Vintage House) Pours dark clear tea-colored brown with a very tall, quickly rising tan head with each pour. Aroma of chocolate and brown sugar with Band Aid. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, lightly pebbly and maybe lightly chalky, perhaps a touch fizzy. Flavor of chocolate, light brown sugar and lightly sour, tangy red wine. Quite phenolic initially. Also kind of hot and boozy all around for just a 7% beer. This bottle may be slightly off, a little infected. Kind of a strange example of a dunkler bock, seems like there is some Belgian influence (which I’m not sure is beneficial in this case).

dutchbeerpages (1470) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2009
hmmm, aroma of french crapes with strawberry jam with some alcohol through it. Head is big and uneven on a ruby red beer. The taste is good too, but the hoppyness is a little bit too much.
