330 ml bottle. Pours an ugly, hazy tawny color with light head. aromas of gingerbread dough. Flavors of perfume, ginger, and nutmeg. Why bother?

This smells like cookies and everything but this is too much. Tastes like a bite of cinnamon cookie. Pours cloudy blond with ok head and some lacing. Pretty disgusting overall. Very sweet. Bottle from Viti.

Dobre i wyraznie czuc aromat ciasteczek korzennych. W smaku lekko slodkie i korzenne, cynamonowy posmak. Ciekawie to wyglada, drobinki jakby ciastek fruwaly w piwie. Piernikowo-biszkoptowe piwo. W sam raz jako dodatek do deserow. Paniom pewnie zasmakuje.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 8, 2013
Braunes Bier mit orangenem Schimmer, der Schaum ist viel zu schnell fort, deutliche Schwebe-"teilchen" - eher -"brocken". Hefig-würziges Aroma nach Spekulatius. Süßer Malzgeschmack mit viiiel Zimt! Komisches Bier, irgendwie wie flüssiges Weihnachtsgebäck (Christstollen, Spekulatius, sogar Printen!), aber durchaus gelungen. Nicht für jeden Tag, aber als Dessert Bier nach opulentem Mahl durchaus geeignet, yeaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh :-)

Purchased at De Bier Tempel in Brussels, Belgium, enjoyed at home in Chicago while booking travel to Brussels in the coming weeks. I thought it was fitting to drink this while doing that activity. However, this stuff wasn’t very good which kind of made the booking process painful. I can’t put my finger on it, but it’s like this one made my stomach upset. The taste is OK, it just doesn’t go down well. Better luck next time!

Lagerboy (1259) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
Hazy orange yellow, lots of unappealing chunks, lasting creamy white head. Muted aroma of yeast and sweet spices. Taste is dominated by sweet baking spices, lots of cinnamon and ginger. Lightly yeasty, toasted malts, no bitterness, cloyingly cookie sweet. Softly carbed, light-medium bodied, agressively cookied. Alcohol well hidden. Sweet and fruity finish. Very festive. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 10, 2013
On tap at Barcelona Beer Festival 2013. Small Pint (20cl). Pours a dark yellow colour with medium white head. Aroma is pretty much lager-like, nothing special. The flavour is a blend of a lager beer with extra cereal presence (possibly what they call cookie, but doesn’t taste like this IMO). Predominantly sweet. Light body, soft carbonation. Quite boring and easy to forget.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Looks like a cookie, tastes like a cookie and smells like nothing. Drinkable but strange. Taste is really crazy and way too sweet. Just an ok one.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 33CL bottle at home. I found this in a store and thought: I like the cookie so maybe this beer is awesome. That was a mistake. The beer does look average, smells average, and while the taste wasn’t that bad, the after taste was and the worst part it doesn’t taste like the cookie in my opinion

Well, it all begins with the looks and this one is -I’m sorry- just disgusting. Light brown colour with low head,medium-light body and everywhere are swimminga round little pieces. Little pieces of what? I don’t know, I hope "only" cookies..... Nose of bitter cinnamon. Taste of ginger bread, christmas cookies, cinnamon stars and brown sugar. This is a really crazy beer and I’m not sure if I like it. It is kinda hard to swallow. Won’t buy it again....
