On tap at Borefts I. Dirty brown beer! Obvious fresh hop nose. Crispy palate. Pretty full on fresh hops but not too bitter. Finishes with a little malt and alcohol spice but as per the other De Molen Ijsbocks - hides it’s abv really well.

Hopfiger, sehr eigener Antrunkm scharf. Ds Bier bleibt scharf, vorwiegend aufgrund des charackteristischen Hopfens. Dementsprechend aromatisch, der krasse Hopfen wird durch den Eisbock mild gestimmt, wenn auch erst zum Ende. Ansonsten verdrängt der Hopfen ihn aber. Interessantes experimentelles Bier! 7/12/11/13//13

On tap at Borefts BF 09. Simcoe as hell. Loved it. Yes, I can see the faults, but I love simcoes so I don’t care. bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2009

Pours muddy brown with no head. How dry-hopping something can make a beer’s visuals go from 5 to 1, I don’t know... Hoppy, vinious aroma. Pine forest, oak and raisins. Medium carbonation, rather sharp and fat mouthfeel. Flavour is alcoholic, caramel sweetness and lots of dry hoppiness. Far too unbalanced. Far below the regular version.
Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Quite flat in appearance, looks a bit like gravy, there is no head. Simcoe hops are on the nose. Taste is hoppy and alcohol is very well hidden, you would never think that you were drinking such a potent beer. Its strong, sweet and malty but sadly despite some positives its not totally my thing.

Tap @ BBF. The simcoe gives a very nice fruity bite to the IJsbock. Taste is a bit more dry, bitter and fruity. Very nice, but unlike others I thought the combination of the cognac with the IJsbock suited the beer better. Not that this is a bad combi ofcourse :-)
