Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, - 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.

Grumbo (2086) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Bottle at the Fat Cat, Norwich. Pours amber with a lasting white head and lots of sediment. Aroma of biscuit and cinnamon. Medium to heavy sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body and sticky texture, carbonation is average. Like a liquid lotus biscuit. Good stuff.

Unbelievable, it really has a cookie taste. The combination is a bit strange, but not bad at all.

thomaspiette (16) - BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2016
Couleurs ambrée foncée. Nez de caramel et de chocolat très présent. Bière très peu amère en bouche avec un fort gout de caramel, touche très légère de houblon en fin de bouche. touches d’amertume légère. Bière apéritive, orgiginale mais pas extraordinaire.

Chunky, overly sweet and doesn’t hide the alcohol at all. I wouldn’t mind the nutmeg, spicy flavour if it didn’t feel like it has real cookies crumbled in it.

sulawang (1116) - - MAR 5, 2016
Visual: (cellared for 3 years). Pours muddy brownish orange with a large super foamy lasting head, 5mm layer of retention, dense clusters of very active streams. Nose: nutmeg, clove, white pepper (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: creamy-crisp, incoming sharp sweetness Mid-palate: sickly escalating (lvl-8-sweetness), cinnamon, ginger, star anise, toffee malt, zingy alcohol Finish: star anise exhale, sugar rush headache. Summary: Likable creamy texture but very heavy on the sugars, ginger, and star anise flavours. Difficult to sip without starchy food. Unbalanced - too sweet, too spiced.

Nowhere near as interesting as it sounds. Quite a high alcohol content, probably a bit too high as it has quite a standard flavour. Best avoided.

Bottle. Was expecting something very different from this, largely sweet ginger taste. Interesting though.
