BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven B.V.
Netherlands
latrappe.nl

Style: Bock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Fall

Notes / 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.

Outstanding rendition of the classic style, but with a decidedly Dutch feel. A really good beer. I had it on tap in Wichita, KS, of all places.

This is not a Bock in the traditional sense,heck i dont think its even a lager.
Think of this more as a Trappist ale version of a Bock
I prefer this over the regfular La trappe dubbel
