Caracole Nostradamus (9.5% ABV) – Brewed by Brasserie Caracole, this beer pours a wonderful coffee reddish-brown color with a tan foam head. Caracole Nostradamus smells of sweet apples, caramel, and pears. The beer is medium-bodied with some spicy, biting carbonation. Wonderful flavors of sweet malt and caramel start, followed by figs, biscuits and cinnamon. The flavor finishes with a hint of pear, peppery spice, and ever so slight licorice. This is an excellent and smooth beer made for sipping and savoring.
