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.

inbirraveritas (1233) - Budapest, - JUL 27, 2012
33 cl bottle. Pours a hazy mahogany with a foamy and lasting beige head, which laces. Tart, fruity nose. Yeasty aroma with dried fruits, caramel, alcohol, bread(crust) and herbs. Syrupy mouthfeel. Dry and warming, sweetbitter finish escorted by citrusses, alcohol and distintct spices, which leaves a long tart aftertaste behind. Very nice.

Brown beer with a red glow. Nice head. Fruity, rich aroma. Full body, medium carbonation. Sweet, bitter taste with bitter aftertaste. Surprisingly rich for a reasonably light beer.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
Trappist bock - the only one, as is stressed on the label - of top fermentation. Rocky, yellowish beige, creamy head, dark bronze colour with ruby hue, clear. Aroma of caramelly and nutty malts, aromatic hops, pear brandy, cloves, cocoa powder, cinnamon. Malty taste, again caramel and nuts, lightly sweetish, sourish wheat accent, bitter finish due to herbal hops as well as a gentle roasted bitterness, quite long. Arguably situated above the average of Dutch autumn bocks.

minutemat (1631) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours dark brown with tan head. Fairly weak sweetness to this, there is some nuttiness with slight dried fruit, but malts are light and it appears a bit too thin for me.

Tetszetős küllemű bak a La Trappe háza tájáról, mely nem csak kinézete által, de illatában és ízében is rendkívül kellemes benyomást tesz fogyasztójára. Egy barnás-rezes színű, krémes, bézs habkoronájú test bontakozik ki a pohárba töltve, majd selyemcukros, gyümölcsrágós illatokkal festi be a teret, melyek mögött narancsos, marcipános, karamelles és természetesen malátás jegyek sejlenek fel. Közepes szénsavtartalommal, gabonás, tejkaramellás, gyümölcsös-alkoholos összetevők alkotta vonulattal indul, mely egy jól behatárolható, belga élesztős jelleg mentén körvonalazódik, ami viszont ez esetben remekül harmonizál a bak sörök karakterisztikájával. Kesernyés komló zárja a képet, amely egyébként tökéletes egyensúlyban van az ital élesztős, szárított gyümölcsös hangulatával.

Gedronken in de abdij zelf, na de rondleiding en het was een van de minste van La Trappe dat ik al geproefd heb

Belle robe orangée sombre et trouble. Collet imposant et persistant. Aromes caramel et compote de fruits rouge. Attaque légčrement acide et fruité. Tres belle rondeur sur un final caramel amčre.
