Nostradamus is a strong Belgian brown ale that is sold in 330mL bottles that feature all sort of snail imagery on their strange labels. It's brewed in Falmignoul, Belgium by Brasserie Caracole.

Nostradamus pours a cloudy brown colour. It yields a thick cream head and has a very malty aroma that contains some caramel and a dose of yeast. It has a surprisingly mild flavour for a brew with so much booze--it clocks in at 9% alcohol.  It's not too sweet either.  It is malty, yes, but also decently bitter. Nostradamus is yeasty, with just a touch of tart fruit.

This beer is dangerously easy drinking for such a strong ale. The flavour is nice, but a bit muted. Truthfully, I'd like it to be a bit bolder. Still, give it a whirl. It's worth a try.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
