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.

lefossoyeur (573) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2012
Dark clear ruby brown with a thick creamy tan head that diminishes quickly leaving a good lace. Typical plummy bock aromas of munich malts, sundried raisins and plum jam. Full bodied, well balanced, all on the munich malts and finishing on a chocolate note. Nice bock.

Swaroga (2021) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 25, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 33cl bottle. Dark red with small tanned head. NOSE : Dried fruits and cherries. Caramel malts. Makes me think of a Coca-cola a bit. Strong toffee and chocolate tart. SIP : Decent carbonation with oily texture. The body is medium. Sweet and oily in mouth. It reveals more sweet but with a burned and fruity background. Ending is A bit acidic and bitter. Mud and roots like aftertaste. Sweet notes are full of toffee and burned caramel. It becomes more like milk chocolate after a while. Burned flavors reveals flavors comparable to a chocolate tart. Some vanilla there too. Acidity is comparable to the aftertaste of coffee and smoked plums. Bitterness on the other hand is just a hint like coffee but mostly covered by the taste of when I bite through a citrus seed. OVERALL : complex and tasty. Amazing beer. perfect winter beer.

From Bottle into a mug, Dark/haze color with not so much of a foam. HUGE aromas of caramel, alcohol and liqueur. Taste the same, with some dark fruits accompanying the caramel. A very pleasant beer.

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.
