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.

Zo zal bokbier bedoeld zijn. Niet te zoet. Uitstekende balans. Kan vrij koud gedronken worden. Doet qua kruiden denken aan een jonge Rochefort 10, zij het iets minder geurig. Lange bittere nasmaak. Drinkt vlot weg en smaakt naar meer.

Clear dark ruby with light brown foam head, reducing to smaller foam ring, lacing to glass. Aroma is strong barley with some bread notes. Taste is bittersweet, tones of bread, barley and little yeast. Longer aftertaste, barley, liitle sweet, bread. (Velp 201211)

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of caramel, molasses and red apples. Tasting adds coffee, chocolate and more molasses. Quite bitter aftertaste with some alcohol warmth. My first Eisbock and quite a tasty beer.

MrHangover (2865) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown beer with a nice, long lasting tanned head. Aroma of molasses, malts and some alcohol. Flavour is sweet from molasses and alcohol. Finishes quite dry. Really nice beer, but it could use some spicey additions. Medium to full bodied beer, long aftertaste. Very decent!

dark amber with a beautifull lasting head. toasted bread, floral hoptones, chocolate and bitter caramel produces a deep flavour and a nice dry finish with just enough sweetness.
