3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a golden hazy body topped with an average white foamy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma carries some spicy hints. Taste is well balanced. Some spicy, fruity, and herbal notes are detectable, and alcohol is well hidden. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 l bottle. Hazy golden color with big white head. The aroma and flavor is dominated by christmas cookie spices: Ginger, cinnamon, cardamon and clove.
The taste is also fairly sweet with warming alcohols. Very odd beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy golden color ale with a huge pure white foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma of cookie dough and sweet malt are dominating. Taste is also dominated by some sweet malt and some sweet cookie dough notes. Texture is oily with a quite full body and some medium carbonation. A well intentioned beer that is just too sweet for its own good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden light amber with a medium head. Aromas of fresh yeast and many spices, cloves, cinnamon, santal wood, musk, ginger and spice cake. Very unique aromas. Flavors are much like its aromas with added candy sugar without the musk. Well balanced and its sweetness is nice as well but lacking in the bitter department. Overall, very impressive.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 mL bottle via Lubiere, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Fairly deep golden-amber, clear, smallish white head.
Aroma: Lots of dried ginger (like ginger snaps, as expected), definite doughy-yeasty notes behind that, some cereal/crystal malt, a little brown sugar;
Palate: Medium-light body, medium carbonation.
Flav.: True to the nose and the name – Specula cookies all the way; some alcohol is evident, somewhat sweet; lingering spices and alcohol in swallowing.
Not awful, but I wouldn’t search out another one. On the other hand, you can’t get a buzz from a cookie, so this has its merits.
