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.

zach8270 (3858) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2009
(bottle - 330 ml) Clear brown color with a frothy tan head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Lots of plums and caramel up front. Flavor starts with a sweet and fruity taste mixing with some mild spice and dark malts. There’s a nice and semi-sweet cocoa middle along with some more fruits and spices. A nice yeasty finish comes up and leaves a mild sweetness.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2009
Deep brown, slightly hazy pour with a thick tan head and some nice ruby highlights. Really good looking beer. The nose is fairly plummy and chewy. A soft spicy yeast with a bit of dark sweet fruit skin. A touch of clove and some light tannins as well. There is a kiss of cocoa on the back. The beer is well-balanced and eminently drinkable. It’s sweet but not cloying. Toasty with a bit of rye-like sweetness. A little bit rummy with a lovely sweet molasses character. This isn’t a bock, but it’s very good.

Dark brown colour, big creamy head, creme-coloured. Staying in the glass for a long while. In the nose there is roasted malts, coffee, caramel. Tastes hoopy, bitter, herbal, hints of coffee and malts. A bit sweet, but for sure not dominating. Long finish, Nice.

Christian (11784) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2009
Dark chestnut with a big off-white head. Aroma of rich dried fruits, spicy phenols, alcohol and a mild oxidation. Sweet and fruity flavour with warming alcohol, and lingering malt and chocolate notes.

75cl bottle. Thanks a lot Nightfall. Trade. Pours dark browny/reddish with a small creamy white head and lacings. Sweet yeasty and malty nose. Dark fruits and caramel. A bit dusty and matured taste. Medium and smooth palate. Tasty.

olsvammel (4118) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2009
It poured a hazy dark brown liquid with a small light brown foam. It had a fairly weak smell of yeast and spices. It had allot of carbonation and a taste of spices, caramell and yeast. An ok beer.

tomer (2161) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - SEP 20, 2009
0.33L bottle, big, thick, light beige head, deep, dark brown almost opaque with just a touch of lighter brown hues. Rich malty nose with toasty hints, flavours of dark chocolate, bread, dark fruits and hints of metal and soy. Long fruity aftertaste, medium to big body. Very good and satisying bock.

Deep mahogany pour with a small, short-lived, off-white head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, and fig with hints of anise and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet dark fruit with some caramelized brown sugar, cinnamon, and licorice. Sticky, medium-full body with lots of carbonation.
