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.

Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Kita. Dark, ruby red-brown colour with creamy, light brown head. Intensive aroma of dark fruits, (cherry dominate), milk chocolate, molasses, light aroma of alcohol. Taste starts moderate bitter with chocolate and caramel note and finished heavy bitter with long lasting aftertaste. Full bodied beer with oily structure, really good one...

The caramel and brown sugar flavors accentuate the sweet character of this bock bier. The trappist character remains, however, with a bit of a dark fruit flavor. Dark brown, nice head.

Bottle from Blackhearts & Sparrows. Very nice malty beer. Aromas of burnt caramel, and chocolate. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Brown, with a frothy head.

Excelente bock, forte e muito lúpulo! Vale a pena quando quer uma cerveja encorpada, cor escurecida e sabor forte e marcante.

Pours a dark brown with a full head. Aroma is full of caramel malty sweetness, yet it is balanced and not overly sweet with a nice kick of bitterness at the end. Excellent bock!

What a great beer! Smooth, roasted malts, toffee, caramel. Lots of flavours! Nice red colour. You should drink this beer together with game or dark roasted pork. Great combination! Best Trappist beer!

Continuing the La Trappe tasting. Just about everything you’d want in a bock. Honestly I think this could beat Celebrator in a blind test. Just really, really good on all fronts - softness, alcohol-masking, malt tones - everything is dialed in. Reserving the perfect score for that head-to-head test with Celebrator, though...

Bottle. Cloudy amber, brown color. Medium head. No lace. Aroma is a perfume sweet, slightly fruity smell. Taste is a wonderful sweet malt taste with a slightly sour after taste.
