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 from MrH - thank you a lot, Johan. Before opening the bottle I had this idea in mind of how this beer should taste like (something in between Schneider Aventinus Weizen- Eisbock and Trappiste Rochefort 10), but unfortunately it was something completly else: Porter, Stout & Leather. Well, the bottle looks nice and the beer itself as well (dark brown / blackish colour with steady head and medium-smooth body). Nose is alright but not overall very impressing - malt, roast, caramel, nuts. Taste might be a little bit tough because it is very malty and spicy. Rotten leaves, caramel, campfire, woods and, well yes: Lots of malt. Leathery hints and some very light smokey finish. No beer that makes me happy, but it was solid and I’m sure many other enjoy it a lot.

Thanks to Mr Hangover for that one ! Classic bock with a bit of sweets, coffee and caramel in the back. Strong one with a warm finish. Definitely enjoyable.
