IJsbok is een levend, niet gepasteuriseerd, bovengistend bier. Inspiratiebron voor dit in Europa unieke bier is het Nova Zembla reisverslag ’Om de Noord’ van Gerrit de Veer uit 1597. Het verslag beschrijft hoe de scheepsbemanning tot hun verbazing ontdekte dat diep in een bevroren bierfust een vloeistof was achtergebleven, die uitstekend smaakte en waarbij ’alle kracht van het bier in dat kleine beetje nog vloeibare bier zat’. SNAB is erin geslaagd om met haar "IJSBOK" het proces na te bootsen waardoor een voor de bierliefhebber zeer bijzonder bier beschikbaar is gekomen. Water, Pils-, Münchener-, Kristal- en Chocolademout, Hallertau Hersbrücker hop en bovengist.

erickok (4340) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Very murky brown body starting with a creamy head that slowly but surely disappears. Liquorish, brown sugar, loads of caramel, brandy - but alcohol relatively hidden for an eisbock. Tasty balanced body with loads of flavour to experience. Aftertaste a bit short but not alcoholic. Very nicely done brew. (33cl bottle, 2,50 EUR)

Martinus (4065) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2011
Dark hazy reddish brown, off-white head. Aroma sweet malty, reminding of kvass. Raisins, caramel, some alcohol in the nose, yeast, fruity hops. Flavour rather sweet malty, caramel, some herbs. Notes of yeast and roasted malts. Light roasted and hoppy bitterness. Finish rather sweet with lingering burned malt notes.
(From 33cL bottle)

Thanks to Alex... Light brown, very light tope head... The nose is VERY Belgian, smells like a dunkelwiesse, some raisins, sugar and alcohol, settles downs after a bit to smell like a pop... Charred bread with raisins and brown sugar, really good eisbock

(bottled) ...brown sugar ice skating on frozen alcohoic dark malt...cloying rich malty clusters in the mouth ..The caramel notes in this is a drunken alcoholic.

Bottle shared at home. Pours dark hazy brown with off white head. Aroma is malt and dark fruits. Flavor is burnt caramel, dough, malt, raisins, liquorice, chocolate. Very soft carbonation but slight alcohol afterburn. Great Dutch bokbier.

Koelschtrinker (13640) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Malzig-süßer Antrunk, der Ähnlichkeiten mit einem Barley Wine hat. Er unterscheidet sich aber in der Herbe, die hier deutlich erkennbar ist und das würzige Malz bremst. Im Mittelteil bremsen sich Herbe und Malz gar gegenseitig aus, von den erwarteten schmeckbaren 9% ist absolut nichts auszumachen. Schade, es hätte dem Bier mehr Charackter verliehen. Zum Ende hin ist die Herbe verschwunden, das Malz agiert halbherzig. Etwas trocken, muffig. Ich habe Besseres erwartet. 12/9/9/8/10/9

Cloudy chocolate brown beer. Semi dry palate. Rich malt with a good dash of chocolate and a little aniseed alcohol and brandy. Not nad but was hoping for a lot more from this big Dutch Eisbock!

thepeter (326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2010
A - Pours a very dark mohogany brown with a rich dense head that leaves some very nice lacing. S - chocolate, roasted malt, straw, metal and yeast T - Quite dry and yeasy not malty like I expected. some roast malt and chocolate, and some spice and hops at the end. Not a hint of booze which is amazing for the strength. M&D - This is smooth as silk and so easy to drink. Almost like it’s a session beer. I could drink a few of these as it also leave a clean dry aftertaste A really nice beer and different from what I expected. I would not be surprised if they changed the recipe as I got none of the sweetness that is in reviews from last year and before.
