Pours a hazy medium brownish amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a touch of fruit. Flavor is a nice mixture of malts and fruits.

"one round up of this beer termed the finish like sour milk...pretty sad that i can see where he was coming from. Itís got a couple good flavor things going for it, but in end, isnít very good or pleasant. this was the 5th of 5 beers in the "Chritmas Beers of Belgium" gift pack. I must say, it was a monumental disappointment. All 5 beers were between 2.5-3.4 I think, with this one right in the middle. The best was barely above average, and none are beers Iíd get again. This one pours amber with a tan head. sampled 2/09...best by 8/09, so like the others i think itís been around for a while. more brown sludge on the inner rim. smells and tastes of fruit, slight vegetal notes, and some spice and malt. tastes the same, with slight unpleasant sourness. almost a nice belgian brown, but something is just...off. acidic. a below average beer, belgian or not."

Alengrin (2331) - BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2014
Christmas version of Slaapmutske Bruin with pale beige, sticky, irregular head and deep bronze colour with wine red hue. Aroma and taste dry grainy and malty, chocolatey and nutty, dried fruits, spicy hints of pepper, cloves and nutmeg, dry and roasted bitter finish. A typical Scotch-style Belgian Christmas ale; rather restrained, could have been a bit more lush for me.

thirstyrabbit (1131) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle. Reddish brown body, tall head. Caramelly aroma with toffee and sweet mild roast. Taste has toffee and caramel. Sweet finish. Just too sweet and caramelly without any complexity. Gets cloying really fast.
