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.

From notes. Nose is brown sugar, leading to treacle and smoked apple. Taste follows but the sweetness is too pronounced.

paulvanpelt (321) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Kastanjebruin, zeer licht nevelig bier met licht beige schuimkraag. Ruikt zoet, suikers, licht houtgerookt. Verder aroma van mout, bessen. Smaak is medium zuur, medium zoet, bitterheid komt pas wat door op de nasmaak. Filmend, vrij zacht. Lekker.

Moolesen (158) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Almost black with a nice beige foamy head. Great aroma of liquorize, burned malt, caramel and a hint of banana. What a great taste... Very rich. One of my absolute favorite Dutch bok beers. Very pleasant bitter finish which is long. A must to taste for bok beer lovers

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark amber with a long-lasting frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is crisp dry yeast and red berry fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a dry spice hop, malt, liqourice, slightly medicinal palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a short bitter finish. Creamy slightly oily mouthfeel.

Strong one. Quite complex but the sweets were to much out there for me. Raisin is well represented. Expected a little more roasted/bitter flavours.

Bottle @ Croydonia, sourced @ Kris Wines. I’m always happy to find an eisbock in the wild. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is autumn fruits. Earthy toffee, red apple. The taste is similar. Unwashed red fruits. Red apple. Caramel. Full body, slightly slick. Not bad.
