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 (2023) - Alexandria, 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.
