Bottle @ Delirium. At last! My epic search for Cookie Beer has reached its end. But is it worth the trip to Belgium? Pours deep brown with a medium tan head. The nose is bright spicy ginger powder, brown sugar, and vanilla. Hints of sweet chocolate. The taste strongly resembles a ginger snap with some chocolate syrup. Sickly sweet. This beer’s mildly astringent, and definitely drinks up to its 8% ABV. Full and syrupy. Overall, not good. Sweet and hard to drink (a shock!).

kerenmk (2420) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 5, 2012
Bottle shared at a beer tasting at Dagan’s, bought at the brewery, October 2011. Hazy blond with stuff floating in it. Spicy aroma: cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg. Tastes sugary and candy-like. Long, sweet aftertaste, light body. WTF?!?

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2012
Brown golden colour, white head, small floaties, as if they really tried to dissolve the cookies in the bottle. Aroma of cookies (speculoos), malt, cinnamon and biscuit. Sweet flavour, quite spicy. Only in the finish this beer comes together, there the speculoos and spiciness gives a nice rounded feel. Unfortunately that becomes boring rather quickly. Not too bad though, and bonus points for trying.
(From 33cL bottle @ local pub, Moergestel)
