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.

hawthorne00 (3502) - Melbourne, - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle, 12C. Very dark brown with a large fluffy beige head that fades to an inch and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is not all that strong until the head fades, but has dried and stewed fruits, spiced bread, singed dark sugars. Mouthfeel just short of syrupy with low carbonation. A bit chewy. Suppose this is bottom fermented but I really wouldn’t guess it to be. Quite a lot of bitterness straight away. Earthy, maybe a little leathery with lots of dried dark fruits and their skins, berries, mild roasted coffee, dried banana, dark sugars, licorice. Enjoyable apart from the stubborn plastic cork.

Night_Cap (116) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle 750ml– cellared for approximately 1-2 years. Served at room temperature. Pours dark murky brown with a ruby tint. Head is medium sized, lightly tanned, foamy and lasts well. Aroma is rich and complex; lightly toasted raisin bread, dates, overripe dark plums, burnt brown sugar, rum liquor chocolates, cinnamon and aniseed. Flavour is slightly vinous with a light-to-medium toasty/roasted bitterness; toasted wholemeal bread, plums, blackcurrants, prunes, dark chocolate liquorice sticks, cooked brown sugar, dried leaves (light) and hints of burnt wood in the finish. Medium-to-full bodied with medium carbonation and a long toasty finish.

Interesting aroma kick, strong maltiness, some toasted caramel, licorice, dried fruits, yeast aspect, wood. Moderate to light sweetness, light bitterness, bit empty on finish, but nice anyways

Brewhemia (190) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2016
Nut brown color and lots of thick offwhite head. Looks nice. Aroma of bread, cellar aromas and a light raisin sweetness. Great taste with light sweetness up front and a good portion bitterness following along with toasty and nutty flavors. I really enjoy the great balance between it all. Palate is thick and dry with high carbonation. One of the best bocks Ive had. But maybe not a typical bock since this is an ale. Tasted very bocky though.

I had this at Global Brew. Pour brown with a tan head. Taste caramel, dark fruit, burnt/sweet. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Punaiseen häivähtävä tummanruskea olut paksulla, kuohkealla beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksussa maltaista toffeemaista makeutta ja hedelmää. Maku myös maltaisen makea ja hieman paahteinen jälkipuoleltaan. Hiilihappoja yllättävän reilusti, mutta tuntuu toimivan kokonaisuudessa. Nautittu lähes huoneenlämpöisenä. Ei huippu, mutta ei La Trappelta oikeastaan tämän enempää (tai vähempää) odotakaan. Taattua laatua.

Bottle. Clear deep brown colour with a quite large tan head, nose is sweet, a bit yeasty/sourish and full of roasted malts, toffee, banana and some metallic notes, taste is very roasty, a bit sweet and unusually sour for a bock with a moderately dry finish.

wxman (1744) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2016
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a cloudy dirty brown with a very thin light tan head. Vanilla aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttered crackers, maple syrup and a bit of coffee. Mild bitterness at the swallow. Quite a good interpretation.
