COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
SNAB laat zich voor haar IJsbok inspireren door het reisverslag "Om De Noord" van Gerrit De Veer uit 1597. Hij beschrijft hoe de scheepsbemanning tot eigen verbazing ontdenkt dat diep in een bevroren bierfust vloeistof is achtergebleven die uitstekend smaakt en waarbij "Alle Kracht In Het Kleine Beetje Nog Vloeibare Bier Zit". Ijsbok hout brengt Nova Zembla nog meer nabij. Lagering met Amerikaans eiken zorgt voor een licht gebrand karakter en toetsen van karamel en vanille.

Vaiz (3600) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle at home. Dark reddish pour, creamy off-white head. Aroma of sugary malts, trappist cheese, slightly funky, creamy and spicy. Flavor is very creamy smooth sweet and slightly spicy. A bit strange, but with a decent body.

Gedronken met remmiesmith. Rozijnenbruin troebel met creme kraag. Aroma is zoetig, in de verte wat zuur, wat hout ruik je terug. Smaak is gedroogd fruit, rozijn. Ik had wat meer alcohol verwacht in de smaak. Body is redelijk, had wat meer gemogen.

tricksta_p (1433) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2015
Aroma of malt, caramel, raisins, vanilla, wood, candy sugar, hint of fruit. Flavour is sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Quite woody and noticeably different from the base beer.

MatthijsE (916) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours an unclear, amber beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma is oak, morning wood, bourbon and boozy. Hints of vanilla in the aroma as well. Flavor is medium sweet with light boozy characteristics. Short, alchoholic aftertaste.

blackisle (915) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle 37,5cl. Opaque dark brown color, big frothy tan head, recedes slowly, thick creamy layer remains, good lacing; aroma sweet malty, toasted, caramel, vanilla, wood, dark fruits, apple syrup, brown sugar; taste moderate to heavy sweet, light bitter, caramel, sugar, dark fruits; full body, creamy texture, woody mouthfeel, average carbonation, finish bittersweet; overall a rather special brew, a lot of aroma and taste impressions, a rather brute beer that lacks finesse.
