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.

Mi è garbata davvero questa bock teutonica, in versione orange. Bellissimo l’aspetto, anche al naso è molto invitante. In bocca equilibrata, pulita e gustosa.

(33 cl) Une petite tête mousseuse repose sur un liquide brun et opaque. Une dentelle s’accroche avec délicatesse. Au nez, des effluves de caramel écossais côtoient des parfums de raisins et de prunes. Les saveurs sont bien douces, maltées et rôties avec une petite touche chocolatée. En bouche, le liquide est de belle corpulence avec un pétillement relevé et une texture crémeuse. La finale est une combinaison de notes amères et de flaveurs d’alcool.

Boutip (5464) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear burgundy color ale with large off-white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light residual sugar with some caramelized malt. Taste is a good mix between some caramelized malt with light toffee notes with some residual sugar. Boyd is about average but has a nice creamy texture with good carbonation. Easy drinking with nice level of complexity for style.

rodenbach99 (3759) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml. Bière brune avec une couche épaisse de mousse brune-beige. Le nez est très sucré avec des notes de mélasse et de poire (j’en rouve partout c’est temps-ci). La bouche est chaude, ronde, sucrée, le malt domine malgré une certaine amertume en fin de bouche et un piquant sur la langue.

DiarmaidBHK (3951) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle from a southern season. Pours dark ruby with an inch of khaki foam. There’s a bit ofmaltiness on the nose. Mouthfeel is dense with a hint of sweet molasses on the tongue. Finishes with some linger. That was different.

PotjeBier (2273) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2011
33 cl bottle. Pours a dark red-brown color. Firm off white, sticky head. Aroma’s of caramle malt, oats, a hint of acidity. Flavor is well balanced sweet and bitter (zoals het een goede bok betaamt). Medium body. Finishes malty sweet, roasted, slightly bitter. One of my favorite Dutch bocks at the moment.

Uit de fles. Ruikt vrij bitter, begint licht zoetig in de mond maar dat gaat te snel naar bitter toe . De nasmaak is ook bitter. Niet mijn bier .

Dark brown with a nice big head that stays pretty long. A lot of malt in the nose and in the taste. A good bockbier.

Abio (1823) - Waasland, BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2011
Darker bown, with a reddish shine in it. A good sized, pretty nice holding and good sticky to the glass head. A bit harder to smell, a bit earthy-spiced, not bad at all, just a bit to hard to get it. Nutty and yeasty, some red fruits, bread, good spiced, with a nice caramel-sweet hint. Good balance between sweet and bitter, with a nice finish that tastes familiar, but can’t tell what it is... A bit woody-earthy. Decent. But seems a bit outbalanced with the yeast.

Heerlijke textuur en bitterheid, pure chocolade, blijft lang hangen, maar geur doet iets minder aan. Prachtige licht bruine schuimlaag.
