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.

Dark ruby color, frothy and creamy head, nice lace. Dark fruity nose has banana, ripe plums and figs, a hint of roasted maltniness and grassy/herbal hops. Malty flavor is dryish, bready and slightly sourly toasted. Light bitterness in the finish. Velvety texture, medium body. Maybe slightly thin in the finish.

330ml bottle from BePLUS, Xiamen. Pours black with a thin off white head. Malty bread aroma. Sweet finish, plenty of body.

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

loco_gallego (119) - 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.

Calisky (1028) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 17, 2014
Couleur sombre, reflets ambrés, légère mousse beige. Nez caramel grillé, malté, note fruits noirs. Gout malté toasté, caramel grillé, bien intense avec fruts noirs et note épicée et sucre candy. Corps cremeux, rond en bouche, bière bien buvable. Fin fruits noirs, caramel brulé, intense. Pas mal!

Interesting bock beer. Strong at first, but smooth in the end, warm with a hint of bitterness.

Excellent! Chestnut colored beer, beautiful creamy head. Aroma’s of moslty malts, some hops. Nice and round beer, medium sweet, nice bitter finish. The quintessential bock imho.

Trappist beers have a huge renomme in the beer world. But this is the one and only Trappist Bock Beer in the world! And it’s the proof that they know about brewing beer. It’s a pure and very good Bock. And even as La Trappe has some help from the Bavaria Brwery - this is much, much better and purer.

From the bottle. Pours a brown beer with a big white head. Starts with a sweet and erupts in a bitter more spiced taste. Definitely a special bock beer and more suitable who isn?t satisfied with the standard brands.

Nice dark beer with a sweet and fruitful aroma. Tastes sweet, bitter and really damn good.
