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....

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.

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 (1806) - 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.
