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.

WillemsUrenkel (565) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2014
0,33 l bottle, bought at Grebhan´s, Bremen. Pours out in a darkest red brown. Creamy beige two fingers head. Heavy dark fruity and wood on the nose. Starts more smooth, malt, barrelwood, caramell, light sweetness, dry herb fruits. Don´t forget the alcohol! Little bit too short middle part. Could be more complex in the ending.

JulienHuxley (3302) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Tap at 37th bokbier festival. Clear deep red pour with rich frothy cream head. Aroma is really toasty, light fruitiness, light nutty aromas, really toast forward with grassy hop, nice light caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, roasty. Palate is med-full bodied with med carbonation, nice drinkability. Nice clean bok, good stuff.

ZodiacM (93) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2014
Een donkerbruin bier met een fraaie schuimkraag, licht beige van kleur. Moutige geur met tinten van chocola. De smaak is zoetig met tinten gedroogd fruit, chocola, mout en een licht bittere afdronk. Een lekkere zware bok!

Alengrin (2124) - BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
Classically made Eisbock produced by the ’Proef’brouwerij for SNAB. Yellowish beige, creamy head, bronze colour, hazy. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, dates, caramel, ginger, black pepper, bayleaf; candied fruits in the mouth, some pear, sweetish and spicy, drying from the middle onwards with a Scotch-like roasted bitterness in the end as well as a medium strong, floral hop bitterness. Very agreeable winter warmer.

olio (6287) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark mahogany color with a huge frothy head. Lots of sweet ripe fruits on the nose, caramel malts, earth, some molasses and some resin. Very malty and sweet fruity flavor, slightly yeasty, herbal and somewhat sugary sweet, faint rye and oat notes appear also. Slightly warming alcohol, sticky sweet palate. Decent.

Hanoi (422) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
From notes. Nose is brown sugar, leading to treacle and smoked apple. Taste follows but the sweetness is too pronounced.
