3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Nostradamus pours a ruby dark beer with a tan, thick, long lasting head. The aroma is dominated by red frutis, brown sugar and caramel. The taste follows the aroma with proeminent port-wine-like flavors. The beer is not as full bodied as one would expect from such a powerful ABV. Overall a nice brew.

330ml bottle. An opaque brown body, big mocha head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of wine, yeast, roasted malt, coriander, herbal hops, a little cheesy. Taste of yeast, caramel, figs, raisins, bitter herbal hops, coriander, dried dark berries. The alcohol is there, but not too prominent. A good warming effect, and a little sticky.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Intense aroma, reminds me of nuts and fruit. You can also smell the alcohol content clearly. The appearance is solid - a good medium brown. Tasting the beer reaffirms the nose, this beer has a nutty sweetness and an alcohol bite. No complaints on the palate, pretty good carbonation & bottle conditioned. Overall a pretty solid brown ale.
