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.

thepeter (324) - 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.

Bottle. Dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are weetabix and strawberry with floral notes. Bready yeast with chocolate and light roast malts. Creamy with some oakiness. Flavours are sweet malts with cookie dough yeastiness. Some cocoa powder with hints of banana milkshake. Liquorice with light pine. Peppery but not overbearing alcohol on the finish. Pretty good.
