Brewed by Amarcord Brewery in the small medieval town of Apecchio, Italy, AMA Bruna is a beer made specifically for the Italian dinner table. Designed by Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver, Ama Bruna is refermented in the bottle with brown candy sugar(7,5% ABV). Complex, but soft on the palate, the malt flavors are pronounced but subtle, with flavors of toffee, a touch of chocolate, pear and cinnamon as a result of the caramelized sugar.

Bottle @ Yespr. Pours unclear brown with floaters and a lasting small frothy beige head. Aroma is toasted, dried fruit, dark sugar, bread and hints of spices.

Loads of caramel and molasses in there. Slight fruity yeast also present. Flavor is light sweet, very malty and fruity. Quite sweet, but a bit boring as well.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle from Capone’s and State Line, Pours turbid chestnt with tan head. Nose is earthy caramel malt, hops, brown sugar. Tastes as it smells, with a rather fizzy and I dare say bland flavor and palate, which is champagney but somewhat limp, as such. At this price, Garrett Oliver owes me some money.
