3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
the bottle says: "with a name like slaapmutske, it has to be good". well, not so fast. aside from the plagiarism of the smuckers jam company’s long held slogan, the role of names in beer marketing success is highly variable: arrogant bastard and monte python’s holy grail are beers that reap sales owing to an eye catching name, independent of a beer drinkers experience. on the other hand, schenkerla and westvleteran are names that could choke a multi-lingual auctioneer, yet quicken the hearts of the faithful. at 12 bucks a pop for the 750, slaapmutske had better do back flips of zymurologic acrobatics like a highly caffeinated terrier dog on the ed sullivan show. admittedly a nice start: "slopmustard" breaks wind with a librarians "shush" as the fake cork became suddenly unemployed. bottle conditioned, with a nuclear winter of dark swirling debris in the bottle, once in the glass we gaze upon a beer as richly yellow as a deep cadmium pool of butter, while the head braced itself on top with the surety of a luxury liner, mainsails in white, flags of lace hanging from every line. "spankmonkey" has a simple hard candy aroma, danish butter cookies, hard little peaches picked in spring, flecks of dry hop leaves, and a bit of bees wax. bright carbonation blends vies with sweetness, bitterness and a full creamy body to command some attention. i taste ginger and grapefruit, with a touch of toothpaste lemon-grass. there persists a lingering bitterness, surprising for a tripel, and a subtlety corrupting influence of alcohol. and still those cunning spirals of lace on the glass point the way to slumber: down, so slowly down. it’s nice, but, but... i dunno. like a pretty girl that i’d stroke all night but never really risk falling in love with. maybe it’s that name: muckslobber-- or whatever.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Quite dark in colour, amber even brown rather than golden or yellow. Modestly yeasty nose, not too spicy. Actually quite dry and hoppy, with a distinctive herbal bitter hop finish. Relatively restrained booze. Tasty.
