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.

paulvanpelt (352) - Reusel, - JAN 18, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Mistig, kastanjebruin bier. Snel verdwijnende schuimkraag. Aroma: chocolade, stroop, gebrande mouten, licht rokerig. Niet te zoet voor een bokbier, licht zurig. Goed gebalanceerd.

gizmo_ber (180) - Steinwenden, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2014
A nice sharp malt, with decent bitterness. light caramel undertone. I’m not getting a lot of flavor undertones, but just enough to add some complexity,

WillemsUrenkel (638) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2014
0,33 l bottle. A darkest red brown in the glass, mighty light tanned head. Berriefruits and sweet malt on the nose. Starts malty, lower fruity, background sweetness. Later more toffee and chocolate, mit bitterness. Alcoholic in the background. Darkfruity ending. No typical bock.

djoeye (1834) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2014
Dark brown body with ruby tones, tan standing head, smooth thick lacing. Mild aroma but; lots of fermented fruits and berries, caramel malts, mild mild hops. Taste; fruity malts, herbal hops, fruits, berries, plums, almonds, nuts, dark malts, syrup, and a dark juicy lasting finish with fruity chocolate notes. Feels well bodied, ok carbonation. Overall a fruity dunkel bock beer. [33cl brown btl, abv7%, #K02H13 BB08-2016, B@Vinmonopolet Tromsdalen, 6€, T@höme]

Boxereddy (144) - BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2014
Donkerrood/bruin bier met mooie beige schuimkraag. Geroosterde caramel met donker fruit in de neus. Lekker mondgevoel met kandijsuiker en mout, bitterige nasmaak. Helemaal niet de traditionele bock!

Wow! Is it really a bock beer? There is so much aroma and taste. Far beyond any typical bock beer. Wonderful and unforgetable.

Een goed bockbier, niet te vergelijken met de andere bockbieren. Gebrande mout, hop; derhalve bitter. Karamel en koffie.

loco_gallego (139) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Sombre avec des reflets rouges ambrés, plutôt translucide. Mousse beige, petite couche persistante avec déôts. Aromatique sur le grillé-brûlé. Maltage caramel grillé. Nez également très fruité. Plutôt sucrée. Entrée plutôt sucrée, caramel. On ressent bien le côté fruité en début de bouche. Ensuite s’affirme le côté toasté-brûlé, avec son amertume. Fin de bouche plutôt amère et sèche. Carbonatation moyenne. Bonne bière, bien balancée.
