3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 bottle. Dark, hazy, brown color and medium, latte head. Heavy aroma of spices, candy banana, caramel, candized sugar, flowers, and fruits. Taste is also really sweet although not as much as the aroma. Fruits, flowers, caramel, and candized sugar. Light to medium body, thin texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is also sweet and fruity but it is also a tad dry, relatively to the aroma that is. Overall not a bad beer but alao nothing special.

Here in the Netherlands, people love drop (licorice swets) and since a while you’ll get even combinations of licorice and toffee. If you like these sweets - you’ll like this beer. A very interesting combination that works. Unfortunately the finish is dominated by a metallic taste that souldn’t be there.
Well, another beer…

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from bottle as Slaapmutske Winterbier and from tap as Slaapmutske Bruin (thanks to Dany, the brewer, himself); a dubbel with crackling, stable, moussy, light beige head and misty bronze colour with amber hue. Fruity and purely malty aroma, apple sauce, banana, strawberry, caramel, coriander, chocolate, cloves, a whiff of coffee, herbal hops, some red cabbage. Agreeably malty taste, fruity and vaguely sweetish, peppery spiciness in the middle, light toasted bitterness and herbal hoppiness in the finish, but rather short. Pretty high carbo for the style. Decent.
