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.

Straling (363) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2008
Bottle 30cl. Pours a murky copper/brown colour with a normal size head and little carbonation. Smell is very rich, nuts there and also some spices and raisins, vaguely some fruits. Taste is also of nuts and spices, also has the fruit there a bit more present. Goes down very nice and warm, good bock beer.

McGarnigle (560) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2008
330 ml Koningshoeven bottle. Hazy reddish brown, looks thick. In the doppelbock neighborhood with big malt, licorice, roast, some spiciness. Dry finish. The body is too spritzy for me.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2008
75cl bottle from Party Pak Liquors (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a dark brown to black with massive white, fluffy head that settles slowly and gracefully laces the glass. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, candy sugar, ripe fruit. Flavor is much of the same with more prominent notes of chocolate, wood, phenol, toffee, and just a hint of coffee bitterness toward finish. Medium to full body with a slight sweet, slightly bitter finish.

Pours an amber brown with a pillowy off-white head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee, candy sugar, and brown sugar. Flavor is of chocolate, wood, noticeable ethers, toffee, and a hint of coffee bitterness mid-swallow. Smooth earthy, woody flavor with a slight smokiness. Good bock.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - OCT 20, 2008
Tomada no teste-cego de bocks do BREJAS. Bela coloração escura, marrom avermelhada, com espuma bege densa, de média duração, deixando uma camada perene. Ótimo aroma frutado (frutas vermelhas). No sabor, notas de malte tostado e ameixas vermelhas. Final levemente seco e amargo. Corpo médio, com certa complexidade. Boa Bock.

Beltramelli (471) - Campinas, BRAZIL - OCT 19, 2008
Coloração vermelho-escura interessante. Creme medianamente denso e persistente. Aroma intenso de malte torrado. O sabor é complexo, com sugestão de ameixas, além do malte tostado e um leve álcool bem inserido no conjunto. O final é longo e tostado. Seguramente, uma cerveja BOCK que oferece sabores e percepções além do seu estilo. Não perca.
