krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2009
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 companys long held slogan, the role of names in beer marketing success is highly variable: arrogant bastard and monte pythons 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. its nice, but, but... i dunno. like a pretty girl that id stroke all night but never really risk falling in love with. maybe its that name: muckslobber-- or whatever.

GeorgePratt (65) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Aroma of citrus, bread and spices. Pours a cloudy amber with a small white head. Tastes of fruit, bread and earth with a warming alcohol finish. Bought this by mistake but dont regret it. Exceptionally drinkable.

phfyysik (1145) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2017
Pours amber with medium white top. Aroma is cheese, parmesan, caramel, old socks, some spices, sourish, pear, fruits. Taste is cheese, caramel, yeast, parmesan, nuts, spices, pepper, sweet, fruits, mango. Aroma irritates me and therefore can not enjoy the taste. Maybe the second attempt will be better!

slowrunner77 (11289) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Floral, fruity, herbal and bready aroma. Light drinking for 8% but in a pleasant sort of way. Flavor is as complex as the nose, perhaps more yeast and less fruit. WAY better than the Christmas Nightcap I had in a bottle years ago.

lello4ever (887) - ITALY - OCT 17, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2016 L?aspetto molto buono, bel colore arancio torbido, la schiuma biancastra frizzantina e di buona persistenza. L?aroma di malto, caramello, spezie, lievito, erbe. Positiva la bevuta, che abbastanza verso il dolce, amaro abbastanza limitato con note speziate. Carbonazione vivace, corpo pieno. Niente male.

ninecats (522) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2016
75 cl. 2014 bottle. Beautiful semi hazy golden with a thick five finger white foam, dissipates slowly leaving lots of lacings. Aroma is dark fruit, both un- and over ripened pear, honey, malty bready notes, slight fresh floral notes. Taste is sweet malty at first, soft mouth, bready and fruity, later a slight warming alcohol note, slight yeast and bitterness. Medium body, low carbo. Clean and well made.

rondphoto (4335) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 20, 2016
bottle @ The Beer Trappe / Lexington KY --- Big aroma of caramel and fruitcake fruit. Cloudy medium amber, off-white head that settles to a cover, sheets of lace. Taste is full-bodied malt and caramel infused with toffee and dried light fruit. Light carbonation moves it to a finish that has light hops and very light sour. No matter, though, as the fruit returns at the very end. Solid and assertive, not one I would drink regularly, but I would never turn one down.
