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.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle: Deep amber/auburn pour with an initially huge tan head that fades to a 1-finger. Sweet, simple aroma. Light sweet fruits of banana and roasted prunes, and mild cocoa notes as well. Frothy, bubbly carbonation. Simple flavor, with plenty of yeasty qualities. Banana-ish sweetness, almost bubblegummy in the beginning. Mild cocoa hints and metallic subtleties. Light roasted character in the finish. Very simple. Not great, but nothing particularly wrong with it.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Bottle. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt and some dry and sour yeast. Pours dark amber. Lots of yeast on the palate, both floral and sweet.Some caramel and toffee, but barely. Actually fairly bitter, I’m guessing its from the yeast and not hops. Medium bodied with very lively carbonation.

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2007
A good bock. Very German in flavor but the yeast seems Belgian. Lots of malt, some caramel, and a good thick, mouthfeel. Medium sweet. There is a lot of yeast, and no the hops are very light. True to style.

Wow a very nice trappist. Unique in his sort. Well ballanced and good bitter taste. Had it only on bottle yet. Really good

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Sugary sweet nose, lots of caramel and some citrus. Really brilliant bright amber color with active carbonation and a huge fluffy head that sticks around for a while. Solid heavy palate with a bit of spice. Flavor is peppery sweet with a caramel and coffee finish.

Bottle, 75cl. Brown colour with a tan head. Aroma is fruity & malty. Flavour is fruity and maybe a bit hoppy.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2007
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with ruby hints. Huge, but brief, pale brown head, leaving traces of lacing. Herbal, fruity nose with notes of caramel, brown sugar, bitter orange marmalade, prunes and faint hints of fresh coriander. Malty, slightly yeasty taste with dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugar, herbs and a rather bitter, slightly burnt finish. Starts with some malt sweetness but finishes rather dry and bitter. Nice mouthfeel, firm but smooth, slightly vinous. Well constructed and balanced, but actually lacking that extra edge. Nice beer, however.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2007
0.75 l bottle. Dark reddish brown color with huge creamy head. Malty, grainy and parfumy aroma. Fairly dry, malty and woody flavor with caramel, pepper, clove, strawberry, cork and perhaps tannins. Spicy and bitter finish. Pleasant, perhaps the best beer from La Trappe.
