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.

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Drinking my first (and I suspect, last) trappist bock beer from a 750ml bottle of Koningshoeven Bock - It poured a deep, clear reddish brown body with a tall rocky beige head. Much heavy lacing. The aroma had cigar smoke, toast, caramel, dark stone fruit, and chocolate chip cookie dough. The flavor delivered much the same adding only a very light herbal bitterness. Good stuff.
