COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a very dark copper that shows highlights when held up to the light. Very active head that disappears quickly and but doesn’t leave any lacing. Aroma is cherries, yeast and sugar. Taste was not as intense as the aroma which was a little disappointing. The carbonation threw me off at the first sip. Not sure what to make of it. Very dry finish. Interesting beer. Might have to revisit it to get a better grasp if it.

veceo (318) - CROATIA - JUN 29, 2014
Cloudy reddish brown color, average sized off white head with good retention. Medium body, soft carbonation. Texture is surprisingly watery. Aroma of malts, yeast, spices, raisins, dark fruits. Medium sweet taste. It lacks body to be a great Dubbel. Also, little bit bland. Not bad, but expected more.

kidmartinek (3507) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Hazy amber, almost brown, with a big foamy head. Smells like pizza dough. Tastes like medievil oregano. Beligan dark sugar is understated. The bottle feels luxurious and looks even more important. Fizzy, quick palate. I would buy this just for the marketing of it.

travita (3839) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. The look is brown in color, beige colored, and clear. The smell is fruity, sugary, honey, raisin, and creme brûlée. The taste is much the same. Too sweet.

BrewBoxer (1871) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color. Malty easy drinking ale. Taste more like a brown ale then an abbey dubbel. Pretty good
