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.

huineman (691) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2015
Pours dark maroon with abundant tan head. Aroma is high: caramel, biscuit, butterscotch, vanilla, orange, a hint of strawberry. Creamy, with marked sourness, metallicity and bitterness. Long finish with aftertones of biscuit. Very nice.

Gangstergafje (1142) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2015 What a beautiful beer of the best brand on the planet. The color is nice dark reddish brown. The beer is a little bit cloudy. The beer pours a nice layer of soft creamy yellowish foam. A nice soft drape of foam remains to cover the beer. The beer has a delicious fruity aroma. It has the typical La Trappe aroma, together with apple syrup, brown sugar, caramell, and some spices. All those aromas are blended together in s delicious bitter sweet smell which is in perfect harmony. The taste of the beer I s unbelievable. It is sweet, bitter and with a delicious caramel twist. Beautiful, no words can describe this craftsmanship. Just taste it yourself.

Zarrach76 (270) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 5, 2016
Ambrée très sombre limite brune avec une grosse mousse dense ivoire/beige... Nez gourmand et épicé : miel, caramel, pain d’épice, chocolat au lait et café, zest de citron vert, poivre, vanille, pruneau, mirabelle, poire, crème de marron, malts bien torréfiés... On sent bien l’alcool qui révèle pleinement les arômes. On décèle aussi de bons houblons avec des notes de bois (cèdre, pin) et de cuir. Très belle complexité, nez hyper intéressant ! Il manquera un peu de profondeur sur les agrumes, mais les arômes sont magnifiques. La carbonatation est moyenne, l’alcool assez tranquille en bouche. A propos de bouche, la première gorgée est très surprenante : texture souple, arômes de café très impressionnants, un côté fumé très intéressant et une amertume ferme et maîtrisée. On retrouve le petit côté charcuterie fumée (bacon) des bières fumées, mais de manière plus subtile. Petite sécheresse en fin de bouche très agréable. Les levures sont très perceptibles et ce dès le début. Les saveurs herbacées apparaissent sur le final. On discerne aussi des saveurs qu’on retrouve dans les Gueuse et les Lambic avec ce côté acidulé de la fermentation naturelle. Surprenant ! Très beaux malts et très beaux houblons, dose d’alcool ni trop ni trop peu, côté fumé et Gueuse/Lambic inattendu : bière splendide, qui n’aura comme seul défaut que de manquer un peu de fruit en bouche. Santé ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

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.

The caramel and brown sugar flavors accentuate the sweet character of this bock bier. The trappist character remains, however, with a bit of a dark fruit flavor. Dark brown, nice head.
