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.

emacgee (4146) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Pours a very rich copper brown with a creamy lasting tan head. Excellent retention. Nose is rich and malty, some raisin, rusty grain, mild sweetness, prune. Flavor borders on thin which is unsettling given the perceived viscosity in the pour. Malty, dark candied fruits, spicy, some alcohol, estery, raisin, caramel. Palate could use some body has a mild spicy alcohol character. Interesting.

degbert (1200) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Wow. I really liked this one. Poured from a bottle; a nice, rich dark-red-brown with a prominent, moussy head. Smells of molasses, chocolate malts -- and the palate is amazing; smooth, rich, and substantial, like good chai or a great milkshake. The taste is elegant; malts up front and then a close with a hoppy bitterness that cleans the palate.

Bart (2939) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2009
Light brown coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small off-white head. Herby and malty balanced aroma. Full palate. FInish is bitter, light herby but with a rather short flavour. Not bad.
