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.

inbirraveritas (1285) - 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.

high_on_hops (712) - Burlingame, California, USA - FEB 13, 2015
On tap. Pours a hazy chocolate brown with a tan head and lacing. It has a great aroma of toasted malt, plum, fig, and dark cherry. The flavor is similar, with a rich malt flavor and a sweet, long finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dnicolaescu (1030) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 8, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Caramel and malts, just as a bock should be, ”Belgian” spice, a touch of alcohol, grains, something vegetable (or dead yeast?). The flavour is also sweet - caramel, but no proper malts, some dried fruit, and a good deal of spicy herbal hops. Alcohol is well hidden, The sweetness never gets sticky.

Dunkelbraun, schaumig im Glas. Dunkle Früchte, Malz, Karamell. Am Gaumen recht bitter, Rosinen, leicht alkoholisch. Angenehmer Körper, herbes Finish.

Tsekouratos (411) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JAN 23, 2015
Dark red to brown color, slightly hazy, brown head. Aroma is caramel, sugar and dark malts. Taste is really sweet. Cramel, toffee and nuts are the first things to come, but after a while the alcohol is really overwhelming, that the beer becomes unbearable. Medium body with medium carbonation.

edsspoon (624) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle - hazy chestnut with a fluffy, rocky and very large orange-brown head. Good retention and okay lacing. Aroma is dusty with yeast and chocolate and some notes of liquorice. Taste is dark fruit, dust, malts and some roasty hints with a mild bitter end and hints of coffee.

rdb84 (174) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Fles. Amberrood, donker. Zoete walm. Stevige schuimkraag. Aroma's zijn rode druiven, pruimen, gedroogd rood fruit, klein beetje bubblegum, klein beetje ipa hop (lychee, ananas). Lekkere combinatie. Karamelachtige bokbiersmaak, ipa hop domineert de evolutie. Droge afdronk, licht zoet. Zoete bok, redelijk brouwsel, maar ik word geen fan van de stijl (bokbier).

Zlotta (159) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
0,75 l bottle from Wijnkoperij Bartels in Zwolle. Clear, dark ruby with a foamy, stable, tan head. Fruity, malty aroma of plums, candy sugar, molasses with hints of burnt malts, dark chocolate and coffee in the background. When it warms up some alcohol can be detected as well. Only slightly sweet taste that has less fruitiness as expected from the aroma. Hints of molasses and caramel with a touch of plums. Slightly bitter finish accompanied by coffee and dark chocolate. There is some smoke in the background as well. Medium to full body, average carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Very delicious and quite unusual for a bockbeer. Its subtle sweetness is well opposed to the hoppy bitterness. It reminds me of the "Best Brewjob ever" by Freigeist and Nøgne Ø which I drank some days ago.

Rob_D_UK (1101) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
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.

A nice sharp malt, with decent bitterness. light caramel undertone. I’m not getting a lot of flavor undertones, but just enough to add some complexity,
