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.

15cl bottle sample @ Kerstbierfestival ’11, Essen. Hazy dark red with small tanned head. Nose : Dried fruits (plums), caramel, chocolate with raisins. Sip : Oily with small carbonation. Sweet start with dried fruits and smokiness in the background. Bitter and little sour ending. Among many sampled beers at the festival this one is going to be forgotten.

Murky brown coloration. No head retention. The alcohol taste and odor is overwhelming. Virtually no bock taste remains.

Strong, dark but difficult bot to fund good. Great hit of alcohol, but lots of dark sugar rather than roast malt

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2013 nice thick aroma full of chocolat and roasted malts, some coffey... Taste is good too, balanced, bitter and sweet, chocolat, roasted malts and hints of coffey, it gets sweeter later on, finish is very nice, dark, bitter and somewhat fruity... it’s quite a lively beer yet thick and smooth.... great ijsbok

erickok (3706) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 8, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Very murky brown body starting with a creamy head that slowly but surely disappears. Liquorish, brown sugar, loads of caramel, brandy - but alcohol relatively hidden for an eisbock. Tasty balanced body with loads of flavour to experience. Aftertaste a bit short but not alcoholic. Very nicely done brew. (33cl bottle, 2,50 EUR)
