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.

Small bottle. Cloudy copper body, medium beige head. Aroma has sweet caramel with some spices and toffee. Taste has roasty malts with dried fruit and some yeast. Good mouthfeel. Finish is bitter but it’s kept in balance with the yeastiness and the dried fruit tastes. The first La Trappe out of the bunch that manages to exceed my expectations.

PhillyCraft (5899) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Brown color pour from a bottle shared. Notes of ash, rye, plum, bread pudding, and prunes. Classic belgian type notes but more aggressive and astringent on the palate. Some soy sauce. Not sure about these dutch bocks..

piękny aromat, mnóstwo miodu, kremowość w zapachu, skórka od chleba, zaskakująco dużo chmielu. w smaku dość chmielowe, melanoidynowe. słodki smak szybko kontruje gorycz przypominająca najpierw karmel ale później pozostawia posmak spalenizny, który mnie się kojarzy z przypalonymi warzywami z grilla.

Buena cerveza muy agradable tanto al inocio como al final del trago con un carbonico justo pero q permite una espuma de muybuennivel y color. Interesantes aromas dulces y un sauve amargor q no languidece. La he acompańado de un uiso de pulpo y me ha parecido agradable. La recomendaria sin lugar adudas. Mejora al llevar 5 min abierta y toma una temperatura mas suave

Aroma of dried figs, colour rich brown with a marvellous fluffy beige head that stays with you. Some rich bock malts coming through but taste is a little dull and can’t make it’s way through the thickness of the beer. Not a proper bock for me and rate it lower than the German lagers. They should stick to dubbels and tripels which are their forte.

Bottle 750ml– cellared for approximately 1-2 years. Served at room temperature. Pours dark murky brown with a ruby tint. Head is medium sized, lightly tanned, foamy and lasts well. Aroma is rich and complex; lightly toasted raisin bread, dates, overripe dark plums, burnt brown sugar, rum liquor chocolates, cinnamon and aniseed. Flavour is slightly vinous with a light-to-medium toasty/roasted bitterness; toasted wholemeal bread, plums, blackcurrants, prunes, dark chocolate liquorice sticks, cooked brown sugar, dried leaves (light) and hints of burnt wood in the finish. Medium-to-full bodied with medium carbonation and a long toasty finish.

Interesting aroma kick, strong maltiness, some toasted caramel, licorice, dried fruits, yeast aspect, wood. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness, bit empty on finish, but nice anyways
