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 (286) - 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.

Bottle, 75cl. A big, off-white head forms over an almost clear, dark amber-brown body. Some curtains. Raisins, prunes, some caramel and yeast in the aroma. Hints of yeast and some baked apples. It’s medium bodied, quite dry and with a pleasant carbonation. Toffee, some chocolate, baked apples, dried dark fruits and some bitterness in the flavor. Lasting finish. Quite nice this one, but a bit thin and dry I think. 150718

Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, caramel and earthy. Taste is sweet with a faint bitterness, mostly sweet. Soft carbonation lends too the smooth mouth feel.

Pours attractive deep amber-red with foamy tan head that quickly reduces but leaves long-lasting skim. Aroma is malt, spiced pear, brown sugar. Taste is softly caramel, figs and the occasional mild hit of spice. There’s a bit of heat from the alcohol, but in general it is unassertive, very light and drinkable for 7.5 ABV. Finish is nicely dry. This fills the bill for a drinkable, supportive table wine, able to complement food or stand on its own as needed.

Tried bottled. Bought in Austria. Colour is dark brown/amber. Poor retention of small weight head. Aroma is malts, pear, slight chocolate and caramel. Taste is sweet, initially pear, caramel and a slight metallic after note with a earthy hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is like champagne with the same dry finish. Nice beer in a nice bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like firewood and pears. Tastes somewhat similar, with added notes of dried fruit, a hint of red wine, and something else I can’t quite place. I like it.
