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.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
(Bottled@Kerstbierfestival 2007, Essen) Hazy dark amber with a small, partly lasting head. Aroma of licorice, roasty malt, and some alcohol. Licorice-malty, slightly sweet and somewhat burned flavor with low bitterness. Medium-bodied, slightly alcoholic palate with medium carbonation. Reasonably enjoyable despite the burnedness and alcohol.

JorisPPattyn (8570) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2007
Deep mahogany beer; small yellowish rim. Sourish nose with a spicy lining, not unlike resin. Black cardemompeel. Spicy, but outspoken dry taste. Again cardemom, roasted and some chocolate; getting unexpected depths. Very dry, on the verge of astringent. Alcoholwarming and despite the dryness, well-bodied. Ah, Derek, this is a good one. You might be more sceptic yourself, I like it, and to hell with styleindications. Pity about the weak nose.
