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.

Rune (10703) - Tromsř, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2012
Many thanks to Finn for a 330ml bottle of this one. Poured into a snifter beer glass revealing a large, bubbly, tan-coloured head with fine duration. Fragile lacing to the glass. Unclear dark brown, ruby tinged body. Plums and earthy malts to the nose. Joyful flavour of herbs and dried fruits mingled with ripe banana and mild yeasty fruitiness followed by a bittersweet ending. Soft in the mouth. Well bodied. Nice (at home, Tromsř, 14.12.2012).

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 13, 2012
csakajosor.hu Igen sötét vörösréz színe van, ami belül kissé ködös. Habja hatalmas, világosbarna, tömör, paplanszerű és igen kitartó. Illata karamellás, fűszeres, élesztős és aszalt gyümölcsös. Íze is hozza az aszalványokat, karamellízált mézet, malátát, jó adag élesztőt, fűszereket, gyógyfüveket és egy kis komlót. Közepesen testes, de nem nehéz és sűrűn van ellátva apró kis buborékokkal. Utóíze keserédes és száraz. Finom és különleges baksör a kesernyésebbek közül.

#1428 Dunkelbraun, feiner bräunlicher Schaum. Hefig-fruchtiges Aroma nach Steinobst (Pflaume). Vollmundiger Geschmack nach Hefe und Mandel, schön würzig im Mittelpart. Klingt ungewöhnlich trocken-herb aus. Für ein Bockbier ziemlich herb geraten und nicht so klebrig süß. Gefällt mir!
