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.

MrHangover (2664) - 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.

33cL stubby bottle I brought back from Amsterdam, finally getting to drink this. Poured into a HofD long stem tasting glass (a gift from John, awesome). Date is worn out on the back label but I think its is best before 01/08/12. It pours with a hairline lacing and a dark copper brown color. Too dark to see through, a bit thick looking but filtered clean at the bottom of the bottle. Aroma is filtered barleywine-like with sweet malts, alcohol, and age creeping in. Flavor is very empty, just empty alcoholic malts. Hmmm, empty tasting is the best way I can describe this. Undescript, sugary malts with a filtered, hollow character.
