Unbelievable, it really has a cookie taste. The combination is a bit strange, but not bad at all.

Couleurs ambrée foncée. Nez de caramel et de chocolat très présent. Bière très peu amère en bouche avec un fort gout de caramel, touche très légère de houblon en fin de bouche. touches d’amertume légère.
Bière apéritive, orgiginale mais pas extraordinaire.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Chunky, overly sweet and doesn’t hide the alcohol at all. I wouldn’t mind the nutmeg, spicy flavour if it didn’t feel like it has real cookies crumbled in it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Visual: (cellared for 3 years). Pours muddy brownish orange with a large super foamy lasting head, 5mm layer of retention, dense clusters of very active streams.
Nose: nutmeg, clove, white pepper (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: creamy-crisp, incoming sharp sweetness
Mid-palate: sickly escalating (lvl-8-sweetness), cinnamon, ginger, star anise, toffee malt, zingy alcohol
Finish: star anise exhale, sugar rush headache.
Summary: Likable creamy texture but very heavy on the sugars, ginger, and star anise flavours. Difficult to sip without starchy food. Unbalanced - too sweet, too spiced.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Nowhere near as interesting as it sounds. Quite a high alcohol content, probably a bit too high as it has quite a standard flavour. Best avoided.

Bottle. Was expecting something very different from this, largely sweet ginger taste. Interesting though.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. No idea where it came from but probably Deanso :-) Poured a hazy straw colour with a big frothy white head and lots of sediment and bubbles. The aroma is rich sweet malt, light floral. The flavour is massive sweet with a rich sweet fruity malt palate and a lingering sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Did not get the Speculaas at all. Sweet, bubbly and truly awful! Had a couple of sips and poured the rest.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Carrefour City supermarket, Brugges, Belgium. Cloudy amber coloured with a large white head of foam. It has a strong, overpowering taste of cinnamon and biscuits followed by a smooth soapy and tart dried fruit finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy orange amber beer, small white head. Nose is malty and sweet, some vanilla and spice. Flavor is malty and with cinnamon hints plus sweetness, it does give an overall impression of a sweet pastry. Malty, bready finish. Like the label says, a cookie beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33L bottle (from beerExpress, Tallinn). Pours amber with off-white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, malt, fruits. Flavor is sweet, chocolate cookies, malt, spices, fruits. Alcohol is rather well covered. Overall: well, it tastes like cookies...
