Beer Review

Review Author: Doug Fairall

Ambrio has a history longer than most modern countries. It's supposedly based off a 14th century recipe, though this is the modern day, a larger amount of hops have been introduced. That's not to say that this is a bitter beer, no sir: it's still quite sweet considering. This beer, poured from a 33cl bottle, flows out with an unappetizing murky brownish orange color. It's really not very pretty at all. Aromas are heavy with yeast and alcohol, with a nod towards sherry. After it warms a bit, some floral and dark fruit notes break through as well. The flavor is geared to a long and lingering mouth coating sensation that's full of yeasty fermented dark fruits, a bit of caramel, and dark candi syrup. Not surprisingly, there is a full presence here in mouthfeel. Overall, it ends with a lingering yeast presence that coats the palate, and leaves it feeling slightly unbalanced.
