TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2006
At ZBF under the Bruin moniker. Brown bodied. Small tan head. Sweet malts, fruit, hints of caramel, and light spice in the nose. Taste is cocoa, sweet malt, touch of caramel, spice notes, and dark fruit flavors. Bit of fullness to the body. Medium carbonation. Finishes with more sweet maltiness, caramel, cherry/raisin notes, and spice.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 19, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2009 Bottle as Slaapmutske Bruin, 6%. Weak sweet aroma with notes of fresh berries. Clear, dark brown colour, getting cloudy towards the bottom. Big, quite stable head. Flavour is slightly watery with vinous overtones. Low to medium bitterness. Thin mouthfeel and high carbonation. OK balanced, I guess, but a bit too subtle for me. 5 3 6 3 15

Bottle at Dulle Griet, Gent, as Slaapmutske Donker. Muddy orange colour. Stable, creamy light brown head. Nice, sweet and fruity flavour. Hint of dried fruits. 7 3 7 3 16

Draught at ZBF09 as Slaapmutske Bruin. Weak spicy aroma. Quite cloudy brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is mildly spicy with a little yeast. Does not seem roasted or fruity. A little boring. 6 3 6 3 12

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2006
(Bottled) Hazy dark red color with a medium, beige, foamy and tight head with nice lacing. A pleasantly fruity and caramely-malty aroma with cherry and fruitcake. The flavor is neutral, straightforward-malty with dried fruit and rye and cherry hints. Medium to full-bodied palate with balanced carbonation. A tasty, very clean and pleasant winter brew with a pleasantly manageable ABV. A really positive surprise, and highly recommended as a wintertime session beer.

smcd (366) - USA - MAR 16, 2006
(Bottle. 03/2006) This was a pleasant surprise. I was not expecting something quite as good. Aromas of dried fruits and some acidity with some grassiness and hints of open, high-desert meadows (sage? laurel?). Dark malty aromas as well. Thick, cream-colored head that lasts for a minute. Hazy, deep brown. Roasty, astringent flavors with chocolate, toffee and espresso. Bottom of the glass, with lots of chunks, presents yeasty (imagine) and rich, nutty flavors. Not as fruity as the aroma would suggest, but some acidity. Big mouthfeel, supported by a warming alcohol presence and a very spritzy carbonation. Some back-end grassy, bitterness.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - OCT 30, 2005
Light toast nose, not very brown for a bruin but OK, tall foamy beige head. Light caramelly malt, low bitter. Lingering toffee flavor that is the highlight of the beer. Thin, clean palate. Nice, quality brew, but not overwhelming.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2005
Murky brown color, nice long lasting medium head. Malt and yeast in the nose but weak. Great malty, and ripe banana taste - thick and spicey.

joergen (19658) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2005
Bottled. Hazy orange coloured with floaties and a small white head. Sweet and spicy aroma with fruity notes. Sweet flavour of spices, malts and fruits.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2005

Dark red-brown colour, large head. Strong aroma, roasted, heavy sweet caramel. Taste is herbs, little bit sweet, finishing into some bitterness. Good beer.
