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.

hopscotch (9170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle… Pours cloudy and burnt-orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. I have a hard time pulling any aroma from this, but finally dig up some dates and figs, and some even-more-restrained notes of fruitcake, smoke and whole-grain bread. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is remarkably well-balanced for the style. I can “sense” or maybe “feel” the alcohol, but can’t really taste it. Also, there are dates, golden raisins and figs with an undertone of maple. Finishes bready and mildly bitter. Interesting brew. Complex. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!
