COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Thanks for sharing Jason. This beer I did not like. It is like a dunkel in my opinion. Unfortunately my notes were laundered, but I know I didn’t like this beer.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Bottled, thanks to Edo! Poured clear deep brown with a creamy, short, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and dark fruits, showing its age in the form of mild, complementary oxidation.. touch of alcohol at the back that never got in the way. The flavor had toffee and aged caramel at the core with prickly dark fruits and light bitterness surrounding.. mild woody sourness around and a dry caramelly finish.. tasty. Medium-bodied on the palate and dry.. sourness and graininess got it the way a little, but it still felt solid.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle... Pours a murky, caramel-color with a large, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. Vinous, malty aroma offers notes of caramel, fruitcake and toffee. Full-bodied with an ultra-creamy mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Salty, boozy and vinous. Moderately bitter. Low residual sugar. Finishes way too salty for my taste... I don’t quite get this one. Thanks to bierkoning for providing the bottle!

Bottle. [thank you, Skortila/Caesar]
Pours deep brown with a nice, creamy yellowish cappucino head on top. Aroma has toffee, bread, some apples, coriander and other spices. Low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely balanced, good sweetness, nice viniousness. Caramel, liqourice, ginger, coriander and liqourice. Finish is lightly warming with alcohol, liqourice and spices. Nice.

TBone (15904) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 24, 2008
Bottled, alc. 9 % (BB 08/2009)
Dark brown color, medium-sized tan head. Sweet malty and spicey aroma. Licorice, dark toasted malts, some spices, some hops, quite big malty backbone. After this aftertaste is suprisingly thin with some alcohol, dark fruits and malt. Anyhow another pretty good brew from De Proef mill.

Muddy brown colour. Malty aroma. Smell of alcohol is present too. Slight aniseed flavour at first, some softer cocoa flavours come through in the aftertaste. Rich texture, slightly oily.

henrikb (1261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle - Dark clear chestnut body, lasting beige head; Spicy very Earl Grey like nose, sharper then malty smooth; Smooth texture, smooth carbonation on malty smooth body with lots of sharp hop bitterness; Long very bitter finish. Eisbock, well, not you everyday Eisbock. A strange but very interesting combo of a beer with lots of character.
