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.

Malzig-süßer Geruch, hefig, Trockenfrüchte, leicht röstig. Malzig-süßer Anlauf. Mitte süß, Schokolade, Trockenfrüchte, hefig, Aprikose. Leicht mehliger, malzfruchtiger und süßer Abgang. Gut schmeckender Bock.

SebBrews (135) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAY 16, 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.

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 (98) - 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.

Cristobal37 (1086) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 25, 2017
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.

acemilan (460) - POLAND - MAR 13, 2017
Piwo o barwie rubinowej z piękną, utrzymującą się pianą. Aromat średnio intensywny ale różnorodny, karmel, owoce, skórka od chleba. W smaku owoce ciemne, bardzo fajny wytrawny finisz pasujący do tego piwa. Bardzo pijalne i dobrze skomponowane niczym na holenderskiej plantacji tulipanów. Dobre piwo.

ardeo (364) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2017
Bouteille 33. Rouge foncée limpide ŕ mousse beige abondante. Nez plutôt discret au départ avec odeurs de caramel et de fruits (cerise, prune). Bouche gouleyante, un peu sucrée (candi), légčrement surette et allant sur le fruit et les herbes avec une légčre amertume et une bonne carbonatation. Bonne mais, pour moi, pas au niveau des autres ’Trappe’. Il faut dire que je ne suis pas trčs ’bock’ !

Det er ikke fordi den er dĺrlig.. man forventer bare mere.. gćr smagen er der, men isćr i duften er den tilstede. Jeg ville ikke tage til Holland efter den, Danmark og England laver rigtige gode mřrke řl.. drik dem ??

hrabren (1174) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle from Vrutak. Tasting at Brnja’s place. Thanks! Murky to opaque dark amber, moderate lasting off-white head. Cherry, caramel, candy, toasty, syrup, cake. Very roasty and dry. Medium to full body, very smooth, medium carbonation, lasting dry finish. Very nice, I’m surprised by the balance.
