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.

My eyes were almost popping out of my head when I saw this one at a friends place, he just had returned from Holland. My fingers clinged to the neck of the bottle and I could not release the grip - so I simply HAD to take it home with me ;)) The color is mahogany and the head is huge and nice. Flavour, well I admit that La Trappe has a very, special place in my heart, I simply like their beers!! It’s full-bodied and balanced with notes of roasted malt, caramel, a bit of fruit and the sweetness is just right (not nearly as sweet as many bock-beers). The alcohol is present, but not enough to disturb the picture.

Furseth (1947) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2006
0,7l Bottle: Deep red amber colour, with a nice creamy head. Aroma of flowers,jeast,citrus, lots of malts, smells lika a typical Belgium ale.Even it is coming from the Netherlands. Flavor is almost the same as the aroma +Vine, citrus, caramel, and a nice hopy/bitter finish. Medium body, and a medium finish. But is this a bock beer?
