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.

jamesie1857 (1559) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, - NOV 10, 2012
33cl bottle - Dark ruby-brown with a medium sized tan head that quickly recedes to a thin film. Fantastic aroma of malt, toffee, dark fruit, and a hint of spice. Full bodied without being sticky or cloying, very nice. Lovely, complex flavour - malt, caramel, brown sugar, dark dried fruit, toasted nuts - and a warm, lingering finish.

Robe brune, légèrement ambrée. Mousse bien. Saveurs de malt torréfié, fumé, fruits noirs, houblon et levure. Beaucoup d’esters. Arrière goût café, légèrement vanillé. Texture épaisse, carbonatation fine. Longue en bouche. Une bonne bock.

rondphoto (2649) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 1, 2015
on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Clear, very dark brown, beige head cover, full lace curtain. Taste is crisp caramel malt that adds toffee and light spice as it moves through the palate, adding enough mild hops at the end to keep it under control. The back end of the finish brings back toffee and fizz. Simple, and enjoyable.

phaleslu (7224) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2015
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a taster. Pours a cloudy amber with an off-white head that laces the glass and leaves some bubbles and film behind. Notes of banana, brown sugar, earth, leaves, caramel, candi sugar, and dried fruits. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel that finishes dry. Good dunkler bock.

Medium offwhite creamy head with larger bubbles. Dark red body. Light, roasty licorice aroma. Taste is deep, intense sweet roastiness with licorice notes. Very harmonic and balanced. Dry licorice aftertaste. Hoppy notes, and a touch of coffee

BiiruBierBeer (488) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2015
Smell is malt, Belgian yeast, and esters. Taste is pretty much the same and finishes semi-dry. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, and slight foam.

ippopotamo36 (624) - Rome, ITALY - APR 23, 2015
0,33 bottle purchased at the Beerville store in Belgrade-Serbia. Ciao Vlada! Pours amber-brown, huge ivory foam which stays there tick and consistent. Nice appearance, good shape. Nose: typical sugary La Trappe aroma, leather, cherries. Predominant alcohol. Mouth. dusty, a hint of burnt meat, very herbal hops and kind of an easy-to-forget Bock which has longed to be different. Not for me.
