Bold caramel malty aroma is barely held in check by mild peppery hops. Malt bomb territory. Thick syrupy mouthfeel. It’s a caramelly malt bomb, and quite one-dimensional, but very tasty. Pours a murky brown with a slight tan head. faroeviking (10913) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 2, 2017
Flöska. Clar dark brown colour, nice medium beige head, ok lasting. sweet well toasted malty caramel dark fruity aroma . Sweet well toasted caramel and malty flavour with some dark fruits, bit alcohol to it, medium bitterness. MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Given their relative rarity in Nebraska, Im still fairly new to La Trappes offerings, but everything Ive tried from them has been incredibly smooth. La Trappes Bockbier is beyond drinkable, and thats worth noting - bock is the German word for strong, after all. This brew pours dark brown with a cream-colored head. Rich and somewhat fruity aromatics. Toast, molasses, fig, plum, and apricot. Flavor profile showcases brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and subtle chocolate and succulent fruit. Theres some touches of warmth and syrupy starch but nothing that makes you take a pause. The rich flavors indicate this is a sipper, but the smoothness tells your palate something else. I polished this off in no time flat. mengo81 (55) - - MAY 25, 2017

Dark brown, ruby color with a thin but persistent tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is caramel malts, dried prunes, toffee and some alcohol. Taste is miderately bittersweet and largely follows the nose. Light to medium body, average to low carbonation.

Fles. Tijdje terug dat ik iets van La Trappe dronk, maar het restaurant vanavond had weinig keuze buiten wat geijkte speciaalbieren en veel van La Trappe. Dus deze maar weer eens. Bokbier met stoutachtige smaak, niet fel van smaak overigens. Gewoon goed, maar geen uitschieter. Mooi donker. teddybearontap (17) - - APR 21, 2017
Appearance - dark, reddish brown with a pretty white head.
Aroma & Taste - nutty, caramel. Not too sweet, though, not like those caramel fudge bars, but actual homemade caramel that just has that perfect balance of the nutty brown buttery notes and juust the right amount of toasted sugar. It does have a solid bitterness in both taste and after-taste, but to me that is absolutely perfect when the majority of bockbier is just *so* sweet. It gives it a very ’direct’ character.
Palate - medium body, good carbonation. Nothing to complain about.
Overall - my favorite Bock to date. If like me you like your bocks (or beers in general) to be less on the sweet side and more on the bitter side, this one’s for you. GreenCat (114) - SLOVENIA - APR 8, 2017
0,33 l bottle. Pours brown with red hue and big thick lasting tan head. Aroma is rich with malt, some yeast and also some alcohol, toffee and caramel, but also some citruses and dried fruit. Figs and plums. Taste is light sweet with moderate bitterness. Body is surprisingly light with slick texture, average to lively carbonation and long bitter finish.

Cola brown foamy tan head. Sweet creamy aroma. Sugary, black liqourice, chestnut taste. Medicinal bitter finish. Alright but nothing special. What makes this a dunkler bock? Seems like a dubbel to me and in that case La Trappe’s Dubbel was much more satisfying.
