maekchu (2300) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Light spice nose, with buttered whole-grain bread, Medium amber color, hazy, and with solid lacing. Moderate cinnamon initial / moves into sweet spiced cookies (yes), with ginger most prominent / final is honeyish and more spices. Medium body. Hides the alcohol very well. Interesting and unusual, with all the spice -- but, really, half a glass is enough.

Ferris (5008) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle - Bready and some cinnamon spice. Cloudy yellow with a rich white head. Bready with some fruity phenols and spices. I can see the cookie bit and to be honest they hit the mark. As a beer though not that great.

Sten (675) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2013
Dark amber coloured beer with a small white head and lots of sediment (wish it was pieces of cookie). Aroma of solvent and speculoos. Flavour is quite chemical with a speculoos finish. Strange brew. (Bottle 33cl)

MrW (435) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2013
Taster from bottle @ BBW 2013 Taste of biscuit (speculaas), apple, cinnamon, appfelstrudel, somewhat creamy/cheesy. Pours hazy biscuitcolor to orange, white dense lacing head. Taste has cinnamon, biscuit, herbs, gingerbread, sweet, but something off. Bitter finish, herbs and biscuit in the aftertaste. Gives a crunchy biscuit feel. Something special but really bad when you drink a large size.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Appearance: Hazy medium amber with cm thick white head. I don’t mind yeast in my glass normally, but it looked very unappetizing in this case. Aroma: Cinnamon, pepper, biscuit, clove and ginger. Pleasant if this was a biscuit but a bit strong for a beer, but it is a cookie beer after-all. Taste: Medium/high sweetness, low bitterness and sourness. Palate: Thick rough texture and a light body. Prickly carbonation and a sweet, sickly lingering finish. Comments: Ok for one sip but I could not drink this and ended up tipping it away. It did leave a glass lace.
