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.

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, - APR 26, 2013
355ml bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a deep ruby-black with a thin off-white head. Aroma is quite lagery, grassy caramel, bit of hop, quite acidic. Taste is medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Quite perfumed, floral rose overtones. Lively carbonation, floral aftertaste. Reasonable, but not a great representation of the style.

Very nice botte design made me grab this one. The refermentation after taste is apparent and sugary, soft on the palate the malt is clear and tastes clean. Some chocoate tast I noticed also somewhere far far away.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- braun-rötliche Farbe mit sehr guter, anhaltender Schaumbildung - Noten nach Trockenobst, Malz und Karamell, aber leider auch etwas zu heftig nach Alkohol - die Carbonisierung ist mir einfach zu hoch - geschmacklich kommen dann noch leichte Nuancen von Honig hinzu, aber auch hier scheint mir der Alkohol zu sehr durch - der Abgang besteht dann aus einer alkoholisch-herb-wässrigen Bitternis Fazit: Einfach zu alkohollastig

Bevuta in bottiglia. Il colore è di un bel oro ramato carica, quasi marrone. Schiuma di colore beige fine ma non molto persistente. Aroma intenso, di frutti rossi, zucchero di canna caramellato, miele e qualche nota agrumi. Sentori di tostato di cacao e crema al whisky. Al palato risulta morbida e amara. Purtroppo il corpo risulta un pò debole, non è molto carbonata.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
May. ’16. A 0.355 l bottle. It poured a hazy brown body with a small head. Weak yeast aroma, touched with pleasant caramel and banana combo. Flavor was lightly sweet, caramel and other finely toasted malt spiced with coriander and cinnamon. Lightly tingling on palate pronouncing the coffee and cocoa notes. Very smooth. Finish was shorter, a bit watery with aforementioned notes now dominating. A bit warming alcoholic and lightly more yeasty here, too. Medium bodied, could be fuller, but okay, a fine Belgian strong anyway. Not really a dubbel, which is probably a good thing.

Dried fruits and caramel but not so intense, dark ruby, medium body, medium carbonation, watery, taste of caramel and fruits...not bad, obviously can be refined.

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle, 75cl. Sparkling dark ruby with a frothy tan head. Aromas of dried fruits, brown sugar, apples, caramel. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation. Thick and oily, slightly dry. Medium sweet, medium to low bitter. Earthy fruit and malty flavors into a sourish fruity finish.

Bottle, 750ml. A dark reddish beer with a small brown head. Aromas of dried fruits, red apples, alcohol and some caramel. Taste is moderately bitter with medium sweetness. Medium bodied with some carbonation and almost no astringency. Feels kind of watery at the end, with a somewhat alcoholic finish, although it has some dried fruits as well.

Spritzig dunkel hefiger Antrunk. Süßlich würzig, geringe Herbe. Konstante passende Würzigkeit, spritzig, zum Ende etwas trocken werdend. Typisch belgische Hefigkeit. 10/11/11/11//11
