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.

Pinball (11001) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2009
33cl bottle from palladio, new market, rhodes city, greece. hazy brown, large soft smooth light brown head. i spent a minute contemplating if this was a 5 or 4. nice. aroma of cola nut, caramel, raisins. flavor of rasted raisins (that’s a first), brown sugar, dark fruits, spices, roasted grains. ends dark fruty and roasted. this dutch bock is a mix of belgian fruity bruin with the usual dutch twist, and a german dark hard roasted bock, quite an interesting mix, that, unofrtunately is more interesting than aprreciable, but still - nice try. i love to taste something new.

zvikar (3882) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - AUG 6, 2009
From bottle, amazing red to copper liquid benith a huge beige head, intense aroma of fruits like cherry liquor, prunes, with maltish tones of resembles maple syrup, nice yeasty complexity with some cheese and brandy like alcohol, flavor is less impressive than the aroma, cinnamon cookies, malt, some roastiness and bitter hoppy finish, palate is just medium. With a more powerful body it could be and outstanding beer.

Deep red colour with a huge head. The aroma is of caramel and prunes. Flavor is similar - it remind me more of a dubbel.

Reddish brown with very thick foamy head, not real clear. Belgian candy sugar, malty, prunes, toffee nose. Palate is sweet but a bit sharp and acidic. Nice feel to it. Nice tang, partially the small bubbled carbonation. I really like this.

From bottle at The Beer Brothers Zomerbierfestival, Mechelen. Deep burgundy with a tan creamy head. Fruity with hints of nuts. On the sweet side, but good, nutty flavours. Likeable.

Slokop (107) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2009
At La Trappe degustation facility Schaapskooi Koningshoeven I had this fine bock. Dark and malty, great bitters, modest head and carbonation. Not the sweetness that seems more and more trend in bocks. Nice beer in a nice atmosphere. I should rate this location too.

Bottle at La Trappe in SF. Amber-brown color with a beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, raisins and figs. Flavor is loads of caramel malt, estery dark fruits, brown sugar, and a hint of Belgian yeast. Smooth, syrupy, and fairly full on the palate.
