My first brew at Bier Garden Portsmouth VA. Deep brown with reddish tinit. Small foamy head. Strong Berry aroma, almost winelike. Sweet bitter, warming berry nut flavor. Medium to heavy bodied. A bit fizzy but pleasant.

Die handwerkliche Brauerei Caracole (zu deutsch: Schnecke) feuert ihre Braukessel noch mit Holz. Das Nostradamus besitzt einen sehr geschmeidigen, erdig-malzig und röstig-malzigen Geruch. Der recht hohe Alkoholgehalt bleibt hinter dem anfangs prickelnden und dann hinter dem ausschweifend röstmalzigen, mit fruchtig-erdigen Noten versehenen Aromen versteckt. Im Mittelteil tauchen dann aber auch wieder die prickelnd-frischen Noten auf, die man bei solch einem Bier nicht erwartet. Bei der Balance gibt es nichts zu beklagen. Schmackhaft!

Dark golden with a big fluffy head. Alchold aroma and taste. A bit sweet but nothing overwhelming. A flat overall drink

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught at The Beer Weekend, Brussels. A nice cloudy red colour. The thick off white head left a nice lacing on the already attractive Caracole glass. Hints of tangerine and berries in the aroma. Powerful, full on flavour. Sweet with mild spice, raisin notes and a long finish. A fitting end to my festival experience, going out on a high note.

Murky brown pour with a off white head. Aroma was sweet with dark fruits,raisens, nuts and some caramel.The flavor was more of the same with pleasant notes of chocolate and toffee as well as some sweet fruitiness.

Bottle at Belgobaren Sthlm. Deep ruby with dissipating head. Penetrating sweet aroma. ABV is noticeable. Really rich palate. Hours of fun.

750 split with Dan. Pours a hazy brown with a medium to large off white head. Dissipates quickly though, carbonation relatively soft. Aroma is of big caramel, toffee, seemed like a barleywine by the nose. The taste however, was a bit more subdued. Chocolate notes, caramel malt, and earthy yeast dominate the flavor. Clean finish. Good beer.

Reddish brown with a small head. Nice aroma of candied fruit. Flavor is sweet with an off flavor of molasses. Not bad, although bit sweet for my taste.

Dark amber color with a thin off-white head. Fruity sweet nose with nice yeast tones. I got some chunky floaties in the glass, but I blame thedm for shaking the bottle. Dark toffee sweetness. Very nice beer.
