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.

Nickls (1956) - Kingstowne, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a finger of lightly off-white head on a rich coppery brown, murky hue. Raisins, toffee, and a hint of roasted malt and fruit in the aroma. Dark fruits in the flavor at first, toffee again and some reduced brown sugar, dryish malty finish. Medium to thinner body with snappy, bubbly carbonation. Warming, and tasty. Certainly a solid brew.

ClubGonzo (4617) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2010
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours a rusty brown hazy body with a creamy off-white top. Aroma is grapes, yeast, dark malts and oats. Nice. Taste is a creamy blend of tarty sour flavors mixed with light oats and caramel hints. Some cherry and wooden notes as well. Nice, but not exactly groundbreaking. Still, a well-made bock bier from a Trappist brewery with an original touch has to be accredited.

Mora2000 (5930) - 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.
