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.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 Donker bier met mooie schuimkraag. Smaak is zurig, ik had het zoeter verwacht. Verder beetje waterig maar redelijke bock.

Lightly toasty, caramel, honey, herbal aroma. Beautiful red color, frothy white-brown head. Medium sweet, light-medium bitterness. Creamy texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. Good bock - perfect for dinners with meat.

Dark amber to brownish color with big brown head. Strong aroma of caramel and roasted malt. Taste is mild sweet, but you can taste alcohol presence. Really good, well rounded beer with nice aftertaste.
