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.

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2012
#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!

Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 330ml bottle (7+4+7+3+12=3,3). Dark copper color. Small off-white head, stays. Alcohol, caramel, dark fruits, raisins in aroma. Malty, creamy, very mild roast, raisins, yeast in flavor. Nice mellow roasty/raisins in aftertaste. 750ml bottle (shared by FatPhil), BB2010. Medium size, brown head, stays. Raisins, prunes, sweet, malty aroma. Sweet, moldy, raisins, prunes in taste. Absolutely fantastic.

BitchPls (711) - FINLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Dark brown, a little lighter than a cola drink. A big beige head. Aromas of some citrus and bread. Quite sweet. Tastes a little like a sweet rye bread. Watery. Has some roasty bitterness in the after taste. Not quite my style of a beer.

Marstonlad (687) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours reddish dark brown with a large, frothy head. Aroma has caramel maltiness, dark fruits, raisin and some yeasty spiciness. Interesting but unusual for a bock. Taste is even more unusual for a bock; it has sweetish maltiness, strong fruitiness, yeast and even a hint of crisp, floral hop aroma. Drying finish with grapefruit and some alcohol. Medium bodied and sticky. This doesn’t seen like a bock at all but I enjoyed it all the same.

jookos (4610) - FINLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Brown, dark mahogany. Sweet malts, some dark fruit, plums, raisins. Dark candi. A bit like a dubbel, but not as rich and boozyer. Body is lghter than expected, and drier. Even as a bock not that great. A bit thin, not as warming as I’d like. And as a la trappe, I’m automatically looking for the yeasty esters that obviously aren’t there.

33cl bottle. Dark ruby color, thick white head. Dark fruity, bready, yeasty aroma. Similar flavor, quite boozy. Long sweetish, boozy finish. Did not work for me.

330 ml bottle. Cloudy reddish borown colour, thick light beige head. Sweetish malty aroma with dark fruits and spices. The flavour is toasted malty, with some banana and dark fruits and a toasted finish. Nice.

koenmachiel (29) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2012
Quite metallic taste and some unfriendly bitterness. I love La Trappe, but they did not well with this bok. Disappointing experience, next time I’ll stick to the dubbel.
