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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Drinking my first (and I suspect, last) trappist bock beer from a 750ml bottle of Koningshoeven Bock - It poured a deep, clear reddish brown body with a tall rocky beige head. Much heavy lacing. The aroma had cigar smoke, toast, caramel, dark stone fruit, and chocolate chip cookie dough. The flavor delivered much the same adding only a very light herbal bitterness. Good stuff.

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.

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!
