An unclear, golden beer with a small white head. Cookies, ginger and cardamom on the nose, the ginger toned down in the oldest bottle. Cookies, ginger and pale malts in the flavor, as in the aroma, the ginger had faded over the years, and there’s some oxidation too.

Bottle. Fizzy pour with a large sized head. Amber in color. This one was just nasty - infected? Sounded interesting, but straight to the drain.

0.33L bottle. Pours chunky golden-orange with a thin white head. Aromas are of.. cookies! Speculaas, to be precise: Cinammon, clove, ginger, and some citrusy notes to boot. Flavor is very sweet, bready malt, ginger, cinammon, cloves. Flavor turn to herby hop and yeasty bitterness at the end, leaving a lingering cookie sweetness and a fuzzy tongue. Full body with a sticky mouthfeel and average (albeit sharp) carbonation. Overall, just like the label says, it’s a cookie beer. Really quite sweet. Couldn’t drink to many of these, but tasty enough for a desert beer.

Orange brown in color, with a small, soon disappearing head, a lot of sediment flows in the beer. Aromas of cinnamon, toffee and biscuit, accompanied by hints of yeast, raisins and almond. Extreme spiciness brings the palate close to collapsing, defined by sweetened cinnamon, clove, cane sugar and a slick bitterness, numbing the tastebuds for possible more subtle flavors. Finishes with biscuit malts, toffee and a huge load of cinnamon, almost too much to bear. Taste gets saved by a lively carbonation, putting some balance to the brew, with coppery hints and a refreshing note. I might also detect orange rind and a whiff of citrus, but actually I am not too sure, because of the ridiculous amount of spices used in this. Very hard to drink.

Taste like fake chocolate. Not my favorite but it gets the job done. The wife said it smells horrible so there’s that. I don’t think I would drink it again unless it was all I had.

Daanminator (476) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 Op het eerste gezicht veel schuim in het glas. Zeer troebel bier met wat lijkt ongefilterde hop/mout? Smaak van zoet en karamel. Kon geen speculoos eruit halen, ook niet uit het bouqette. Al om al niet echt het beste bier wat ik op heb.

Bière immonde au gout chimique. Le gout speculoos est très présent. Aucun intéret. Je n’ai pas réussi à terminer mon verre.

Icedwarf (1160) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014
Geel bier met schuim. Smaak is zoet met speculaas aroma die chemisch overkomt. Combinatie is apart en naar mijn mening minder geslaagd.

Bottle courtesy of Amy, thank you ma’am! Smells and tastes like oatmeal raisin cookies. An interesting concept, but not for a beer, sorry. Couldn’t finish it.

Geruch kräftig nach Zimt und Vanille. Geschmack dann sehr extrem, Zimt Vanille, Karamell und Aschenbecher. Zudem relativ stärker Alkohol Geschmack. Brennt im Hals.
