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.

Beautiful beer of the best brand on the planet. The color is nice dark reddish brown. Little cloudy. The taste is unbelievable. Sweet, bitterness and a delicious caramel twist. Beautiful, no words can describe this craftsmanship. Just taste it jour self.

CanCrusher (721) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 12, 2014
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.

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