We prove a criteria for nilpotency of left braces in terms of the $$$\star$$$-central series and also discuss Noetherian braces, obtaining some of their elementary properties. We also show that if a finitely generated brace $$$A$$$ is Smoktunowicz-nilpotent, then the additive and multiplicative groups of $$$A$$$ are likewise finitely generated.
