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.

ForlornHope (356) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a clear red-brown with a tan head and good lacing. Nice aroma of roasted malt, bready yeast with a herbal hop background. Tastes sweet to start but a good balance of bitterness. Rich, malty mouthfeel with flavours of red fruits and fig. Dry, lasting finish. Pretty good.

BlueGaljoen (80) - FRANCE - MAY 8, 2016
Robe très sombre et mousse épaisse brune. Très équilibrée du début à la fin. Malt grillé. On est sur le pain toasté avec une jolie amertume subtile. Bière sèche caractéristique de son style. Très bonne bière de repas sur des plats un peu chargés.

arkanu (44) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 26, 2016
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Huge, light brown with yellowish tint head on top of a dark brown with suble red notes pour. Starts great. Heavy carbonation which is barely noticeable due to the amazing aroma of the hops. Bitterness is amazingly well masked, taste is well balanced, not too strong roasted malt, not too much caramel, just the ideal amount. Dark dried fruits, some hints of smoked plums and toasted bread. Aftertaste is somewhat sweet, yet with subtle bitter notes. Amazing beer!

Piwo ciemnobrązowe, piana dość obfita, dość trwała, symbolicznie lepi szkło. W aromacie słodko, głównie karmel. W smaku równie słodko, karmel, tosty. Średnia pełnia. Wysycenie średnie.

notes de chocolat, caramel, épices, amertume en fin de bouche. Pas fan du style à titre personnel, mais passe assez bien en fin de soirée/repas
