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.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 2, 2010
Pours deep amber, big fluffy head. Aroma is very bock-esq. Caramelly malt and disctinct yeast character with no trace of hop.
Flavour is initially slightly sweet, with caramel malts dominating. A slight roast malt bitterness follows with a nice ’bock’ yeast character.
A very well balanced, authentico bock.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 1, 2010
750mL bottle, Trappist Tasting at Joe T.’s. Pours a dark, murky, cola-brown color; creamy, thin, light-tan head with decent retention and lacing. Lots of kettle sugars, caramel, and a touch of oxidation; slightly sticky, and the dark fruit note is a bit overripe. Medium to medium-full body; relaxed carbonation, creamy texture; slight amounts of warming alcohol; a hint of fusels; medium-high levels of caramel, dark fruits, and plummy notes; slightly underattenuated, seemingly sweet, lightly sticky, minimal (minerals?) hop bitterness; light fruitiness from the yeast; just kind of bland and sticky-sweet. Lasting finish, with the appearance of a bitter chocolate notes, caramel; ~balanced ending.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Pours a murky brown with a small off-white head. Faint aroma of dark fruit and biscuit malt. Maybe some Special B. Grainy flavor with bittering hops underneath. Biscuity alcohol finish that lingers a bit. Too heavily carbonated for the style.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2010
Bottle (in NZ). Pours a dark ruby red with a large pillowy beige head (it really is beautiful). A smoky aroma, with toffee and pine. A slightly dry palate, oak dominates the flavour, the malt just the right richness. Damn fine.

Beerman6686 (6249) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2010
This poured a darker red color with an off white head. Aroma was grassy german hops, sweet malt and some yeast. Flavor was very odd and off, very sweet, some garbage taste and grassy hops. A german style, clashes hard with belgian character.
