La Caracole "Nostradamus"
Belgian Brown Ale (ABV 9.5%)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

Poured a hazy medium brown with a large fizzy light brown head that rapidly dissipated and had poor lacing. The aroma was heavy with caramel malts and a sweet doughy yeast with a hint of dried fruit, some spices and a strong wine scent. It tasted moderately sweet with a strong dried fruit note at first and finished ever so lightly sour-sweet with a nice caramel flavor and a mild alcohol tinge at the end with the flavor lasting and average duration. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and a little syrupy in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing change to the typical Belgian Strong Ale.
