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.

Draught (Arendsnest, Amsterdam)
Deep cloudy red. Sweet aroma - dark malts. Taste is a bit, erm, wow! Shocking, but very inviting. Hoppy and malty taste, a bit marmite, a bit burnt, sticky, hoppy, and rubber on the roof of my mouth. In some ways it’s a bit too much of a mix and slightly incoherent, but all the same it’s a stonking strong bock.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2008
Thank you Edo/Bierkonig for this delightful beer! It’s mahogany, slightly hazy and it has a red hue. The head is huge, nice and creamy. The aroma has loads and loads of roasted malt. The flavour has a light sweetness, loads of roasted malt, caramel, licorice, burnt dark candy sugar and a light citrussy bitterness. It has a remarkably nice body and balance, it’s almost porter like. It’s beyond doubt the best bock I have had up till now! Yummi!!

larsga (6937) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2008
Medium light brown head. Slightly hazy deep red body. Sweet bubblegum, licorice, and candy aroma with alcoholic roasty malt notes. Wild berry and earthy licorice taste. Dryish chocolatey licorice aftertaste is perhaps the strongest taste. Overall there is surprisingly little taste and depth, though. As you drink, the chocolate comes to dominate more and more. Mild, cool mouthfeel. Not bad, but disappointing for such a strong beer. (0.33l bottle, de Gekraakte Kettel, Amsterdam. BBD Aug ’09.)

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2008 A dark brown beer with a medium beige head. The aroma of burned roasted malts, also a little sweet aroma. Chocolate and coffee taste. There are also some alcohol notes in it. A little spicy. A very good and nice bockbeer. I think one of the best.

CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2008
33cl bottle: Pours dark brown with red edges. Thin but tight off-white head that doesn’t last too long. Upon opening the bottle, big sweet malty aromas pour out making way for winter spices being pushed through by alcohol. A bit of coffee and black licorice also stumbles out. The licorice comes back in the flavor with sweet malts, mixed fruit, light vegetal, and melon. Yeast makes its appearance in the middle. In the finish, whole coffee beans get pummeled around by the alcohol but somehow win out in the end.

TrefwoordPunk (864) - 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 (9015) - 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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2007
Bottled. Pours out in a beautiful hazy reddish amber colour with big white foam. Alcoholic peppery aroma of nuts, toasted malts and anise. Nuts, toasted malts, herbs and alcohol in the full flavour. Warming finish of almonds, herbs, fudge, licorice, grass and alcohol

A Mes rate: 33cl bottle at Kerstfest, Essen.
Cloudy mid brown with a good tan head. Sweet but not too sweet malt with spice and a light bitterness. Slight soap in the finish but pretty decent overall.
