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-, Mnchener-, Kristal- en Chocolademout, Hallertau Hersbrcker hop en bovengist.

Very dark chestnut color, almost black; big head. Nice aroma of malt and caramel, also some chocolate and maybe liquorice and spices. Medium bodied, less thick and sweet than other examples; mostly chocolate flavor. In the end the alcohol is warming. Because of the chocolate, it reminds me more a Strong Belgian than an Eisbock.

Bottle. Hazy, ruby-amber coloured, mid-sized, stable tanned head. Molasses, caramel and dried berries in the aroma, accompanied by a tinge of yeast. solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied. Becomes even more bitter and drier in the malty and fruity finish. Very O.K. ........

On tap @ ’t Arendsnest. Deep dark murky brown colour, off-white creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, malts and raisins. Flavour is the same, a little bitter finish, fullbodied, a lot softer flavours than the Ezelenbok. Alcohol very well hidden. Really nice bock.

Thanks for sharing Jason. This beer I did not like. It is like a dunkel in my opinion. Unfortunately my notes were laundered, but I know I didn’t like this beer.

Bottled, thanks to Edo! Poured clear deep brown with a creamy, short, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up toasted caramel and dark fruits, showing its age in the form of mild, complementary oxidation.. touch of alcohol at the back that never got in the way. The flavor had toffee and aged caramel at the core with prickly dark fruits and light bitterness surrounding.. mild woody sourness around and a dry caramelly finish.. tasty. Medium-bodied on the palate and dry.. sourness and graininess got it the way a little, but it still felt solid.
