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.

orange, hazy color. smells of speculoos cookies, light apple / fried apple slices, and strong cinnamon smell. full body, quite sweet and taste of cinnamon. not bad, but a bit unbalanced. too sweet, too intense aftertaste.

Perfect Christmas beer! Light brown with medium white head. Perfect gingerbread taste, this is liquid gingerbread indeed! Meanwhile nice beer bitterness comes later.

One of the view rare occasions in which I emptied my glass after a view sips straight into the sink... A terrible waste of ingredients this heavily spiced piece of ale. Refers much more to sugared water than to beer.

Bière qui n’est pas du tout une « belgian strong ale », mais alors là pas du tout, mais alors là que non point, mais alors là que nenni… C’est une bière prétendument « spéciale belge » au spéculoos, et qui se révèle une nullité sans nom … (en langage populaire, une chierie pure …). Couleur précisément excrément de chien un peu malade (voire beaucoup …). Apparence avec des morceaux de spéculoos !!! (non, je rigole, des particules échappées d’une centrale nucléaire, ou de l’arrière-train d’un cabot pas catho …). Bulles moyennes pas nombreuses, mais garanties crados.. Mousse mince comme un nappage de rejet gastrique. Arômes de soupe aux oignons (tournée à vinaigre), linge mouillé au fil, caca d’oie. 1ère bouche liquide (tu m’étonnes), sur un infâme composé d’oranges amères et cannelle au rabais. Arrière-bouche (si l’on peut dire) qui vous fait reculer de 20 cm sur votre siège. 2ème bouche inqualifiable, qui est un galimatias de goûts hétéroclites. Arrière-bouche infecte sur une cannelle passée. 3ème avec cannelle et oignons cuits dans un jus de crabe. Arrière-bouche sur du cambouis de garage. Sur la longueur, on regrette amèrement (le mot m’échappe) d’avoir 33 cl dans son verre. CONCLUSION : moi qui adore la cannelle, je n’aurais jamais imaginé que l’on puisse faire quelque chose d’aussi mauvais avec ce produit. Même les pires cuisinières n’auraient pu faire plus mal, c’est dire !!! Abject. N.B. excusez-moi, mais ratebeer n’autorise pas la cote 0, sans quoi ...

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.
