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.

BlackHaddock (6565) - 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 youve 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!

Zarrach76 (73) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 5, 2016
Ambre trs sombre limite brune avec une grosse mousse dense ivoire/beige... Nez gourmand et pic : miel, caramel, pain dpice, chocolat au lait et caf, zest de citron vert, poivre, vanille, pruneau, mirabelle, poire, crme de marron, malts bien torrfis... On sent bien lalcool qui rvle pleinement les armes. On dcle aussi de bons houblons avec des notes de bois (cdre, pin) et de cuir. Trs belle complexit, nez hyper intressant ! Il manquera un peu de profondeur sur les agrumes, mais les armes sont magnifiques. La carbonatation est moyenne, lalcool assez tranquille en bouche. A propos de bouche, la premire gorge est trs surprenante : texture souple, armes de caf trs impressionnants, un ct fum trs intressant et une amertume ferme et matrise. On retrouve le petit ct charcuterie fume (bacon) des bires fumes, mais de manire plus subtile. Petite scheresse en fin de bouche trs agrable. Les levures sont trs perceptibles et ce ds le dbut. Les saveurs herbaces apparaissent sur le final. On discerne aussi des saveurs quon retrouve dans les Gueuse et les Lambic avec ce ct acidul de la fermentation naturelle. Surprenant ! Trs beaux malts et trs beaux houblons, dose dalcool ni trop ni trop peu, ct fum et Gueuse/Lambic inattendu : bire splendide, qui naura comme seul dfaut que de manquer un peu de fruit en bouche. Sant ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelbraune Farbe mit einem starken rubinroten Einstich, ist unfiltriert mit einer brunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist malzig, leicht rstig, mit Karamell und Trockenpflaume. Der Geschmack ist erstaunlich schlank, rstig mit Karamell und im Abgang kommt die Rstnote stark durch und endet in einer krftigeren Bittere. Im Nachgeschmack dominiert findet sich eine angenehme Note von Zartbitterschokolade.

Bijl (324) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2016
Donker robijnrood, crmekleurige volle foamy schuimkraag, troebel. Aroma: Geroosterde mout, donker fruit, karamel, gist, iets kruidig, licht koffie. Smaak: Fruitig als een Belgische dubbel.... donker fruit, moutig en geroosterd, koffie en chocolade hint, karamel zoet, kruidig en florale bitter...iets prikkerig, zoethout. Ik vind de bitter erg prettig... niet heel zoet. Prima in balans. Medium body, prikkelig en aktief mondgevoel, afdronk is droog en geroosterd bitter. Goeie Bock met een Belgische hint. Top!

jampura (132) - FINLAND - NOV 19, 2016
Mahtava bock. Hiiva, karamellisuus ja maltainen tumma maku on runsas, kevyt ja raikas sopivan happokuuden ansiosta. Hieno, tytelinen olut.

Alebarasi (47) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - NOV 14, 2016
Pours hazy ruby/amber color with beige head. Medium body and carbonisation, fair lacing. Complex, but rich grassy and citrusy aroma with notable hints of dark fruit (figs), brown sugar/caramel/molasses, smoke, bread, barley, yeast, cloves and toffee. Its taste starts with cherry and other sour malty flavors, continues in a honey-like sweetness and ends in a bitter, smokey and dry fruit-influenced finish. Mouthfeel is rich (but little dry), creamy and smooth. Great bockbier! One of the best Ive had.
