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.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber toned body with an off white head. Malty body with dark fruit rum raisin notes, some light plum, tawny caramel and a modest warming. A spicy tobacco and hints of roasted malts. Sweet with a drying roasted finish. Nice ale.

eManu (525) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 10, 2010
Pours a dark red color with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, molasses, dark fruits and spices. Flavors of smokey roasted malts, caramels, coffee, some drak fruits, and a hint of wood oak and spices. Good carbonation, sweet and bitter smooth finish. Good balance of flavors, with a nice bitter lasting taste in mouth.

degbert (1589) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Wow. I really liked this one. Poured from a bottle; a nice, rich dark-red-brown with a prominent, moussy head. Smells of molasses, chocolate malts -- and the palate is amazing; smooth, rich, and substantial, like good chai or a great milkshake. The taste is elegant; malts up front and then a close with a hoppy bitterness that cleans the palate.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2009
Light brown coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small off-white head. Herby and malty balanced aroma. Full palate. FInish is bitter, light herby but with a rather short flavour. Not bad.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 8, 2009
Bottle, 33cl. Pours dark translucent mahogany, with decent slightly beige head. Sweet malts, chocolate and caramel to the nose, and similarly rich on the palate with the addition of ripe fruits. Very well balanced and blended, and overall a very quaffable Trappist beer.

Vaiz (4182) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2009
Pours dark amber to red with a thick foamy to creamy head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and a bit alcohol. Wonderful taste that starts bitter and hoppy with sweetness and malt kicking in just a bit later, very well balanced. Finish is long, dry and bittersweet. Good carbonation and a creamy texture. Love this.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2009
Mild but complex aroma of sweet spices, toasted nuttiness and a little warming alcohol. The flavour also has alcohol and some gentle caramel and toastedness. Warming and nicely complex but a little dull.
