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.

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

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 (604) - 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.

A nice bock, but nothing very special, which is something one would expect from a La Trappe (at least I would).

Dark reddish brown colour. Smell od roasted malts, dark fruits, dark chocolate, banana, plums and caramel. The same is flavour with little bitter - malty aftertaste. Surly one of the most represantative beers of this style.
