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.

Clear dark reddish brown beer with a creamy beige head. Looks beautiful in its own glass. Rich aroma of raisins, roasted malts, fruits and alcohol. Flavour is raisins, dark fruits, bitter roasted malts, some sweet alcohol. Vinous and soft creamy mouthfeel. Very rich and tasteful bock.

Bottle brown, 750 ml
Appearance: Pours red to slightly deep violet body colour, typical for a Dunkler Bock beer, carbonation of body is medium, body is clear in texture, head is initially medium to big with no lacing, slowly decreasing to the minimal, off - white, cappuccino like, beige in colour.
Aroma: Plum, prune, brown sugar, light sweetness, sweet fruity but mild aroma, alcohol is well hidden, very mild flowery hoppyness, typical Dunkler Bock aroma, some Munich malts and gentle malty sweetness.
Flavour: Very interesting especially due to fact that it feels almost like a very light seassion beer in terms of alcohol content but its 7%abv! Amazing, very easy going and drinkable, some notes of malty grains, sesaonal grains, surprisingly not sweet as the aroma would suggest, plum, roasted grains, very mild bitterness, not that complex. Finish duration is medium to long, a bit too flat finish I think. Reminding Dunkel bottom fermented beer in the aftertaste, quite regular.
Palate: Body is medium, alcohol is perfectly hidden, texture is wattery. Finish feel is neutral, a bit dull, neither hints of fruits nor bitterness.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAY 30, 2008
750ML Bottle. Amazing Dark Brown color, the foamy is beige and persistent one! Aroma is complex, some notes of fruits and toffee and roasted malt as well. Flavor is complex too, I could feel some chocolate, roasted malt and a lightly alcohol presence.. Mouthfeel is bitter at right point. I like it a lot!!

Português : Cerveja de cor marrom escura com uma espuma bege bastante persistente, aroma é complexo com notas frutadas, caramelo e malte torrado, sabor com notas de chocolate, malte torrado e uma leve presença de álcool. Retrogosoto é amargo na medida certa. Adorei!<P>

Bottle. [thank you, Skortila & Caesar]
Deep dark red with a rather large frothy beige-white head. Aroma is mildly sweet, some raisins and roasted caramel. Creamy mouthfeel with rather lively carbonation. Flavour is wonderful, good chocolate, raisins, sweetness. Slightly roasted and dry finish. Really a wonderful dunkler bock. Incredibly balanced, none of the sweetness of many other dunkel bocks. Wonderful!

letsbeer (10) - BRAZIL - MAY 2, 2008
Aroma is complex, with some caramel and a mix of roasted malt notes. The head is beige, foamy and firmly persistent. Dark brown, no bright. On flavor, the roasted malts are dominant. Medium body, some complexity. Good carbonatation, the bitterness is light to medium, well balanced with the beer. Finish is smooth. The beer is fairly well balanced, with some roasted malt aftertaste. Great beer, at the same level (but not the best) as the others from La Trappe.

beerguy101 (5286) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Tasted at the April Northern California Beer Tasting. This bock pours a deep brown color from a 33cl bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel and toffee and fairly sweet. A medium bodied bock. The malts are caramel, toffee, bready and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. Nice balance. This beer kind of surprised me, it was much better than I thought it was going to be. It’s not very complex, but its very drinkable. The malts are sweet without being cloying and it finishes with a slightly dry and bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2008
2008-04-19. Ruby tinged brown body, good sized beige head fades a bit. The signature glass is not really aiding the aroma in that it disperses it before allowing for a longer pondering of it. Teasing out the details reveals sweet malt with light toasted malt notes. (7+) Sweet malty flavour, lightly alcoholic, pleasantly warming. Malt dominant with light fruity undertones. (7+) Smooth average plus palate. Fairly pleasant, very malt forward. Nice. On tap at The Abbot On The Hill, Toronto
