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.

BlackHaddock (7674) - Shropshire, - NOV 5, 2012
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!

Ysok02 (1827) - Mons, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2017
Robe brune aux reflets ambrés, mousse abondante, crémeuse et persistante. Nez élégant sur les épices douces, le chocolat noir, le malt torréfié, la noisette, légère touche lactée. Bouche à l'attaque à la fois fraîche et crémeuse, de la tension, une bulle présente et fraîche, de la longueur et une finale à la fois lactée et acidulée, d'une belle complexité. Une belle bière qui allie rondeur et fraîcheur.
