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.

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.

omhper (20178) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Bottled, thanks Papsoe! Hazy mahogany colour, small beige head. Aroma of plums and cocoa powder. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel and surprisingly slim body. Fairly soft moutfheel, alcohol is evident. Fruity, yeasty and choclatey, tastes top fermented. Light salty finish.

Rastacouere (6142) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
Opaque deep brown body is topped by a frail off-white head. The nose feels quite yeasty, especially for an eisbock!, and even a bit estery, it might actually be an ale for the fruitiness does not appear to emerge all from the malts. It comprises a certain banana cloyingness on top of the chery oriented richness coated in sugary nutella and buttered cookies. The yeast feels fatigued, maybe even autolysed as mild sulfury notes peak through. Rather weird example, a butter fountain that is quite unclean yes includes some fun flavours.

yngwie (14347) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
Bottled. Reddish-brown to golden color, and a beige head. Caramel, sweetness and some hops in the nose. The flavor is quite similar, but has a pronounced bitterness. Medium to full body with a sweet feeling. A bit anonymous, but definately not bad. (070216)

This bock poured very dark. Complex roasty malty aroma. Bold, large flavors and a heavy mouthfeel. An excellent eisbock.
