bab 13. heard so much about it, time to try ! pours amber/brown very fine foam, almost like its not real! bubbles are so fine you cant even see bubbles ! smell is speculoos , taste is very much like the coockie itself. not complex, nothing else, no hops / yeast/ malts, ONLY coockie... gets borning VERY quickly

ekstedt (5635) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle (33 cl) from bierzwerg.de. CLear deep golden with some small floaters, medium white head. Strong cloying spicy cookie aroma. Meidum bodied, soft carbonation. Ultra (sic!) sweet. Pretty disgusting.

L’arôme de speculoos et peut-être le zeste d’orange. Le goût est très sucré et come le speculoos. Au début c’est étonnant, une bière de speculoos! Mais après un ’tis bou d’temps le sucre commence a dominer et au fin du verre c’est comme du medicament sucré de speculoos. Bois-la vite! Une bonne experience, spécialement si tu la prend avec des cookies speculoos mais il n’est pas une bière trop serieux.

Weird gimmick but I had to try it, being at Delerium Cafe, home of a gazillion beers. Poured into a mildly fluted glass from a bottle. Nice translucent amber with a finger of light head and minimal lacing.

Nose is a cookie! Gingerbread, cinnamon, sugar, spicy pepperiness. Quite nice to the nose, and quite a disappointment on first taste.

Absurdly sweet - overpowers the variety of cookie flavors with almost nothing but sugar. Tiny hints of gingerbread and cinnamon. Few bubbles, but not flat per se. A bit of pepper in the aftertaste but much, much more sugar. Almost rock candy-like - can nearly feel crystals of sugar on the tongue. Got quite sour as it warmed, and was quite difficult to finish.

Kristall-König (2318) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2012
Süßlicher Geruch, lebkuchenartig, verbrannt. Süßer Antrunk, sehr stark Nach Zimt. Mitte noch stärker nach Zimt und weihnachtlichen Gewürzen. Dies hängt auch im Abgang lange nach. Nicht mein Geschmack.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Hazy goldish orange with small to.medium floaties and a thin lasting hazy white head. Smells like a belgian ale with toasted malt, cinamon, ginger and light citrus. Full creamy frothy body. Twstes sweet fruit peach, ginger, cinnamon and banana wheatness. No cookie here whatsoever. False advertising.

mile (3131) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sugary sweet aroma, caramel, spiciness (cinnamon). Body is medium, malty and sugary sweet flavor, caramel, spiciness. Finish is average, malty and sugary sweet, some caramel, spiciness and some alcohol. Really not very enjoyable.

Golden colour medium bubbly head, smell is fresh but also sharp from the typical speculoos/cinamon smell, medium carbonation with a more clear speculoos taste, especially in the aftertaste the cinaomon keeps a while togheter with a medium bitterness, i was afread that it would be too sweet but it is not

Draft at Brussels Beer Festival. Pours cloudy brown with a thick off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, biscuits and malt. Flavour is medium sweet and light to moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It really is like drinking nice cinnamon cookies!
