Ambershock® is an amber beer produced by way of infusion, with 7.0% alcohol by volume (17.7 Plato degrees). The wort boiling phase is prolonged in this case to obtain a certain caramelizing of the sugars in the wort. Strong, full-bodied and mellow, its marked yet well-balanced malt flavor mainly derives from a special bottle-conditioning process that lasts for approximately 4 weeks. Bear in mind that this is not a refermentation phase caused by adjunct sugar or wort, which happens with Trappist beers. It is an exclusive procedure adopted by Birrificio Italiano® of Lurago Marinone. That is why Ambershock® is only sold in bottles. If it were matured in vats and served on tap, it would have a completely different taste. Bottle conditioning also brings about perfect settling of the yeast, which makes it possible to have a perfectly limpid beer with a strong, bright amber color.

Aroma marcatamente di caramello e leggero luppolo. schiuma ben presente e persistente. Il malto è evidente all’assaggio, con un retrogusto che definirei "piccantino" e resionso. Alcool non fastidioso. birra con un buon equilibrio

Keg at the brewery restaurant. A clear ruby red amber colour pour with a sticky off white head. Aroma is semi sweet toffee and brown bread malts, tangy red berries, mineral, burnt sugars. Flavour is composed medium sweet rounded layered malts, toffee and brown sugars, dried raisin with a hint of rum. Palate is medium sweet, sticky, moderate carbonation. But sweet for me.

Degustata alla spina presso il Birrificio Italiano. Buon aspetto, caramellata, poco torbida buona schiuma persistente. In bocca sentiamo subito il carico liquoroso. Aromi legnosi, leggermente amara sul retro gusto ma nel complesso dolce caramellata. Più da meditazione che da Happy Hour.

SinH4 (3100) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2016
Tap. Amber color with small tan head. Aroma is buttery, caramel. Taste is more butter and caramel, but in a nice, balanced way. Quite straightforward, but delicious. Medium carbonation. Good.

Holmen1 (4814) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2016
Supert krankupp på Circus 25.1.16 sammen med Ovesen. Etter Bibock passet det perfekt å gå litt opp i % med enda en maltdrevet øl (dette kan vi!).Brunrød kobber med (igjen) eksemplarisk, tett skum - cappucinofarget. Litt pepper og krydder i utkanten av karamell/brun kandis, røde epler og søte appelsiner. Dette er virkelig raske leker.

Holmen2 (2873) - NORWAY - JAN 25, 2016
From tap at Cirkus with JMD 25.01.16. Clear, pale copper. Dense and persistent beige head and lacing. Fruity aroma of dark caramel malt, syrup and noble hops. Similar taste, well balanced with refreshing ohop bitterness. Roasted nuts in still similar, and equally refreshing, aftertaste lingering on. Superbly quaffable

Ambra scuro ramato, schiuma dalle bollicine ampie. L’aroma è di malto con una lievissima tostatura. Al palato inizia dolce ma segue un sapore secco e leggermente amaro. Carbonazione media.
