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.

    Bottled@The 2nd ES/CS Beer Tasting. (thanks MM!). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, fruits, mild earthyness as well as some herbs. Flavour is sweet malts, some bready and cardboardy notes as well. Mild spices and toffee as well once it warms up.

    750 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7%. Unfiltered and unpasteurised. Amber colour, moderate head. Moderate aroma of berries, toffee and dust. The flavour is fairly malty with some sweetness, notes of berries and maybe some toffee again, moderate hops in the finish, hints of resin and dust. Not a "shock" by any stretch of the mind, but decent enough.
