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.

TrefwoordPunk (833) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head and an earthy, burned and sweet grainy aroma. The tasted is roasted malts and some mild sours notes, like black coffee at first and a light red wine coming after it. A long burned and bitter finish and almost no alcohol to taste. I like it very much, a great beer!

MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2008
(33cl bottle) Hazy, ruby colour with a medium-sized, light-beige foamy head. Sweet, berry fruity, slightly yeasty malty nose with a spicy touch. Sweet flavour, full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Roasty malty, slightly caramelly taste with a distinctive fruity note of dried berries; moderately sweet and roasty, slightly fruity finish with an obvious alcoholic strength. Pretty warming in winter but it lacks a bit balance.

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.
