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.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2005
Very dark color, very strong smell of bayleaf. Mouthwarming, licorice taste cloves, developing into sweetness, into bitters, a real beer to sipp en think over.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2005
Dark brown with reddish shine, large off-white head. Slightly sour-malty nose. Sweet, almost syrupy taste, but compensated by a good clean bitterness that lingers long. Slightly bubblegummy, alcoholic palate, but not for its strength. All in all decent and enjoyable.
