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.

kevnic2008 (11079) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2012
Pours a dark caramel brown. Smells of roasted malt and caramel. Tastes of roasted malt, caramel, and molasses with a bitter background. Finish is a balance between bitter and brown sugar. Pretty good.

Eructoblaster (3751) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy dark brown body with an average off-white foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and fruity hints. Taste carries vineous, fruity notes and ends with a moderately warming bittersweet finish. Decent Bockbier.

Eirikur (385) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - APR 27, 2012
Pours a thick white medium dense head. Very dark amber. Aroma is mostly dark chocolate, roasted coffee .. still a bit thin. Medium sweet, medium bodied, alot of hops along with a thin malt,, rather thin texture, lively carb, finished way too fast for this type of Ale. I was expecting more .. as I was with the rest of the La Trappe line ... The only La Trape that has really caught me was an old Quatruppel, think it was 4-5 years in the bottle. Not too bad overall, value is 6/10.

_angst_ (4395) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Ekstedt shared @ Ekstedts bock-tasting. Ours mahogany brown with a creamy off-white head that leaves lots of trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet with bread, ammonium chloride, prunes, raisins, dates, yeasty esters and alcohol. Taste is sweet with dark bread, caraway, cloves, phenols, esters and alcohol. Mouthfeel is round and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, slightly bitter, malty and tiny metallic with bread and cloves.

MADpalace (219) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2012
Ruby/brown/red with little caramel/yello color, a bit mysterious. Nice sweet abbey with fresh malt smell. Heavy bitter, strong low taste. A bit more heavier as to be expected from a bock-beer that has a mild smell and looks warm. After a few sips found some flavours of melted plastics which is not nice.
