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.

tmoreau (2994) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Poured to an event shaker at the WCD Trade Expo in Chicago, showing a deep copper color, with a frothy layer of soft white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was caramel & toast, some ready alcohol, and esters as dried fruit, and a bit of cherry. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste added some earthy bitterness, a bit of citrusy astringency, subtle sweetness, and a somewhat dry finish. Alcohol poked it’s head out in the aroma, but remained rather hidden in the flavor. No matter,... tasty nonetheless.

Pours a dark amber/brown color, topped with a nice beige colored head. Aroma is a bit roasty, some caramel, bread and yeast. Taste follows naturally - sweet start, some caramel and a bit roasty, typical yeasty feel and some bitterness. Decent one.

rhsiung (1200) - USA - JUL 13, 2015
750-ml bottle from rare beer club. from the hang tag: "La Trappe Bockbier is a bit drier, darker, more bitter and roasted than traditional German Bock. Like many Dutch Bocks, it is a bottle-conditioned ale, not lager." 36 ibu. weird for it not to be a lager. tons of head, malty, caramel, an earthy (bitter?) aspect i didn’t care for. but great with a splash of syrah!
