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.

Sunday 20 Oct 2012 sees me sat outside in bright sunlight: Valkenburg, Holland. I walk passed a board advertising La Trappe Bockbier on tap, I put myself into reverse and have two lovely glasses of this and watch the world go by. Deep brown/ruby red in body colour: the sunlight dancing on the ruby tints. Large cream coloured head when brought to my table: soon turns into a wispy covering and collar (what a pity). Malts and yeast esters vie for your smell senses with the malts easily winning. Add a hand full of crushed dark, red berries and a spoon full of all spice and you’ve got the aroma. The malts rule the taste as well, malty molasses giving the beer a rich, smooth feel and flavour. Most likely the best Bock I had while on the trip. Another bar was having a Bock Fest and had around 8 on tap, so I managed to try a few, as you do!

This pours a cloudy, medium brown color with a foamy brown head. The aroma is sweet full of malts and hints of spice. The flavor is thick full of nutty, plum, dried fruit flavors. Very yeasty, lots of carbonation with a bitter finish.

Kolor: br?zowy, brunatno czerwony z rubinowymi refleksami.Piana koloru be?owego, zbudowana z drobnych p?cherzyków tworzy grub? warstw?. Trwa?o?? piany ?rednia ale i tak pozostawia ?lad po ka?dym ?yku.Aromat z?o?ony i intensywny. Na pierwszym planie ciemne owoce, ?liwy, wi?nie, czere?nie, mieszaj? si? z akcentami palonymi i lekk? popio?owo?ci?. W tle pl?cze si? nuta karmelu i alkoholowa ostro?? likieru.Smak: tutaj jest odwrotnie, najpierw palono??, kojarz?ca si? z gorzk? kaw? i du?o popio?u, pó?niej likier z wi?ni, suszone ?liwki i s?odkie czere?nie. Najciekawsze jest to ze wraz ze wzrostem temperatury zarówno aromat jak i smak ewoluuje. Pojawia si? ostro?? pieprzowa, kosztem palono?ci wyra?niejsza jest popio?owo??, owoce delikatnie przesuwaj? si? do ty?u.Goryczka sucha, popio?owa, jest d?uga, idealna.Wysycenie wysokie, nawet za wysokie.Alkohol: cho? w aromacie pojawiaj? si? jego delikatne akcenty to generalnie nie przeszkadza. W smaku nie wyczuwalny.

0,3l on Tap at the Abdichten de Westerburcht. Tiefbraunes Bier mit kleiner beiger Schaumkrone. Riecht leicht nach Röstmalzen, im Geschmack intensiv nach Röstmalzen und Kaffee, im Nachgeschmack bleibt ein sehr angenehmer Geschmack nach Bitterschokolade zurück.

Batavi (221) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
75 cl. fles uitgeschonken in La Trappe bokaal, licht troebele warme roodbruine kleur met een volle beige schuimkraag. Aroma van; licht geroosterde mout, karamel en butterscotch, gedroogd fruit als rozijnen, vijgen, pruimen en bessen. Verder tonen van specerijen als gember, en vanille. Het smaakpallet is zoet en zacht bitter, goed gebalanceerd medium complex. Tonen van karamel, rozijnen, pruimen, fruitcake, gember en vanille. Mondgevoel is romig, met een licht prikkelende carbonisatie. Uitstekende bock, met daarin het La Trappe karakter duidelijk herkenbaar, zeker een van de beste Nederlandse bokbieren. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vol van smaak, heerlijk bitter in de nasmaak. Licht troebel, donkerrood tot bruin bier met een smaakexplosie bij de eerste slok. Even wennen dus.

Ik ben geen fan van bockbieren maar ik vondt deze opzich wel te doen. Hij is wat zoetig en toch bitter in de nasmaak. Mooie diepe rode kleur met normale schuimkraag erop. Smaken van karamel en noten zijn subtiel verwerkt in het bier. Voor de bockliefhebber is dit een echte aanrader.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with an average to large frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Solid toasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth sticky texture. Moderate toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet malt finish of average duration. Good brew with spicy food.
