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.

Bottle. Pours a great looking dark brown with tan head. Aroma is great, notes of malt, dark fruit, black licorice, brown sugar and spice. Flavor is very much the same, semi sweet as well with a touch of dark roasted grain and a nice burnt grain bitter. Mouth feel is medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable beer but a bit over priced.
