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.

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.

Aragh (213) - POLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Piana wysoka i sztywna. Kolor bardzo ciemnej herbaty, brązowy z rubinowym refleksem. Zapach całkiem miły, piernik, owoce leśne. Smak lekko palony, nieznacznie odczuwalny też alkohol, generalnie wytrawne, trochę trawy, cytrusów, rodzynki. Goryczka umiarkowana, szybko opadająca, ale utrzymująca się krótko.

Ottima birra. Dal bellissimo colore mogano abbastanza scuro e limpido, schiuma marroncino chiaro, fine, abbondante e persistente. L’aroma č gradevole, maltato, marzapane.In bocca č molto buona, con gli stessi sentori che al naso. Ancora una volta La Trappe ha fatto centro!
