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.

Bottle Kerstbierfestival 2007: Poured a brown with a beige head. The aroma was spice and liquorice. The taste seemed coffee and mylasses, with a touch of liquorice. The finish was tingles of alcohol.

yespr (33872) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2007
33 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours dark brown with a huge light brown/orange head. Lovely yeasty and slight spiced aroma. Flavour is slight chocolate flavoured, malty and with more of that creamy yeast flavour. Medium sweet. Lingers nicely into the finish with the Belgian yeast flavours. Lovely.

JorisPPattyn (8246) - 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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Sampled on tap at Wildeman. A really nice, smooth, knock-your-socks off kinda beer that would earn higher ratings from me if I had more access to it.

On draft at Arendsnest, Amsterdam. Red-brown coloured. Caramel malts and fruity notes in aroma together with some roasted malts and some alcohol. Sweet flavour with obvious complexity, great mouthfeel. Very nice brew.
