COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AMA is a transatlantic brewing project that carries the signature of Amarcord Beer, with its origins in a meeting in New York with Garrett Oliver, the Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster, and the internationally famous designer Milton Glaser, amongst other things the inventor of the "I love NY" logo.

A selected blend of choice coffees gives complexity and depth to the dark beer with a compact creamy head. Coffee notes in the bouquet, which is particularly broad and fascinating. Hints of chocolate in the mouth, together with nuts and liquorice for an unforgettable experience.

- Hazelnut foam, dense, creamy and persistent.
- Dark brown color.
- Mild carbonation, body intense and sustained.
- Powerful its olfactory intensity and extraordinary olfactory finesse amplified by the special ingredients used: powerful scents of roasted coffee, accompanied by molassed sugar cane. We use a special selection of Pascuccis coffee and the precious Demerara cane sugar from Malawi (one of the most southern African States), that gives Ama Mora an extraordinary aroma.
- In the mouth cappuccinos flavour, extremely long taste of sweet coffee, roasted notes. In the final subtle notes of vanilla equilibrated with the freshness of liquorice.
- Aftertaste full of coffees aroma, roasted malt wrapped in the notes of cool licorice, pleasantly dryness comes from the hops and the roast malt and obviously from the alcohol.

nephirem (414) - CROATIA - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle, 0 35l. Black pour with one finger soapy beige head. Quickly diminishing, leaving a thin layer on top. Malty nose, roasted with lots of caramel and nice and subtle coffee notes in the background. Thin to medium body with somewhat light texture. Carbonation is pretty high and aggressive, killing the flavors a bit. Mildly bittersweet taste, slightly roasted. Aroma pretty nice, not intense, subtle. Coffee grains, cappuccino, cocoa powder. A bit grainy. Touch of caramel and raisins. Slight alcohol presence, very subtle, ABV is masked well. Regular finish, slightly bitter. Lovely cappuccino aftertaste. Overall, good, but theres room for improvement. Lower carbonation and fuller body would make a huge difference here.

GoufCustom (1877) - HONG KONG - OCT 22, 2016


355ml long neck bottle bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Looks: Clear deep Cola blackish brown colour; Less than one quarter finger head and residual soapy light beige foam which fades in 20 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and sweet dark malt, with strong roastyness, caramel, toffee, light rum, strong liquorices, roasted coffee, chocolate, cream, floral, sugar, bread, yeast and grass. Pretty complex!

Taste: Close to strong sweet full dark malt, with coffee, light rum, liquorices, caramel, strong toffee, chocolates, strong cream, floral, brown sugar, bread, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and strawy grass.

Body: Mid to full body. Quite thick and very slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Excellent full dark maltyness in a solid, fairly creamy background. A fine mix of roasted coffee - not quite espresso - and strong liquorices get things going, followed by strong toffee, cream and caramel. Nice brown sugar sweetness. Strong flowery lemon to round. Very easy and comfy!

Hoppiness: Floral and grass in nose. Lemon, strong floral and strawy grass in taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent sweet coffee finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Sweet, roasty and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: This last AMA beer I got is the real deal - solid dark maltyness, good dose of roasted coffee, creamy body, nice touch of rum booze with strong liquorices and nice brown sugar. Its taste pretty much back up its impressive aroma, yet its light and comfy enough as a strong Porter. Well balanced and very enjoyable. Nice one!
