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.

SpringsLicker (3234) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Dark brown body. Malty arom. Malty sweet flavor. Lacks some Bock aspect (I can’t read my notes :-).

Mora2000 (5924) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2010
The beer pours a hazy brown color with a tan head. The aroma is brown sugar, yeast and caramel. The flavor is dark fruit (the main fruit I get is raisins) as well as brown sugar, caramel malt, alcohol and yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad, but not too similar to a bock. It tastes much more Belgian than German.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at the Rake thanks to Carrie.
Murky amber colour with a good beige head. Really pukey malt. FULL of yeast, waaaaaay over the top and sickly. Sweet malt, some caramel and nuts and a rather spicy finish with a lengthy bitterness. Far from entertaining.

Bov (10216) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 6, 2010
from Drinks of the World - fully cloudy dark copper-red colour with a little beige foam left; nice lace; aroma of apples and caramel with notes of chocolate; medium- to full-bodied, sweet and with a quite harsh palate (use of wheat starch?), a light bitterness and an earthy malty and caramelish finish - unrefined and not much quality out there, deeply forgettable

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 5, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Nice head retention and lacework. Raisin, crackers, mushroom and banana in the nose. Not a typical bock. Sweet. Hardly any bitterness. Decent.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
Pours a dark brown color with a thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, fruits and malt. The flavor has chocolate, fruits and malt along a strong bitterness in the after-taste.

dyetube (1280) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2010
This beer pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. The aromas are bread, light cinnamon and and a little alcohol. The palate is slighty dry and syrupy with some spiceness in the end. This was a great beer! Cheers!
