COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This unique seasonal product is the worlds 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.

JaroMantic (44) - - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki Pours dark brown with a sticky frothy head. Absolutely beautiful! Aroma of caramel, sweet malts and dark fruits. Taste is a nice mixture of sweet maltiness, caramel, dates, chestnut and yeasty spiciness. Medium bodied, light hoppiness, surprisingly bitter finish. Top points for appearance, but otherwise average beer at best. I have no idea what makes this a Bock, for it tastes like a Dubbel to me! :)

Pours a lovely deep red with nice cream head. A dare I say beautiful beer? Smells of treacle, molasses and soaked raisins. Lovely. Tastes very malty and bitter with a lingering sweetness. Strong alcohol aftertaste. A deep and complex beer which I really ought to love, but just doesnt quite do it for me. Still grows on you the further down the glass you go.

hauxe (626) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2017
Pours tawny dark brown from the bottle. The head is thick and creamy. A light lacing clings to the glass. The aroma is a convoluted mix of bubblegum, fig, and rootbeer float. Taste follows nose with an overall sweet entry that delves into bubble gum, sour cherry and chocolate all at once. The overall effect unfortunately seems more artificial than natural and is worsened as we slide into a flat chemical toxicity that permeates through the finish and leaves an, uh, disagreeable impression. Palate is on the light side of medium. This feels like a worthwhile stab at the best of German and Begian styles. A typical inter-european cooperation - a great ideal, a promising start, but sort of a mess.

Pours dark brown with ruby shades and tan head. Aroma is very fruity: plums, dates, figs, chestnut, earthy hops. Same in the mouth, nicely balanced. Soft to medium carbonation, medium body and almost sticky mouthfeel.
