Birra Moretti La Rossa is a double bock beer produced using high quality 100% malted barley, giving it a rich sweet taste and an intense fragrance of roasted malt. The amber colour that characterizes the beer, comes from kind of malt used in the recipe (malt is dried, roasted barley). Another key ingredients is hops, the variety used is particularly aromatic, giving a characteristic bitter aftertaste and a delicate fragrance to the beer. The Master Brewers advise a service temperature between 10° and 12° C.

Darkover (1519) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Clear ruby color with a big beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel. Flavor of caramel, toffee, and some bitterness. A little thin for a dopplebock, but still way better than I expected.

Suttree (5293) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2004
A pleasent surprise - Bright clear ruby red, nice off-white head. Spicy, malty aroma. Nicely sweet, fruity flavors, and a subtle hop presence. Above average in all respects.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5140) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 This beer has become a staple for my wife and is fairly frequently enjoyed by myself as well. Still the best beer I have had from Italy. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a dark brown color with a large tan head. There is a sweet, malty aroma with a hint of molasses. The flavor is sweet and malty with hints of caramel and molasses. By far the best Italian beer I have come across.

Braudog (5932) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 Light burgundy with a massive, nutty amber head. Hearty caramel aroma, stark, nutty and hoppy, too. Rich and fully flavored, roasty malts and caramels, and very, very malty. Sweet finish. Much more sweetly malty than one would expect from an Italian beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2004
This beer is actually pretty good. Extremely malty with almost no hop bitterness to counter it. It just seems that some of the other doppelbocks have more of a complex malty character and seem smoother than this one. Not too bad for the price. (3 bucks at the bar)

DarkElf (3037) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2004 Strong malty beer balanced with a mildly bitter hops; Fairly high in alcohol; Maltiness is sweet, moderately toasty and slightly chocolatey; The sweetness is borderline sugary; The nose is malty and sweet, but with less aroma than many of its dopplebock counterparts from Germany; The color is a dark amber with an orange hue; Quite a lot of carbonation bubbles rise through the beer; The head is a very light tan color and has better than average retention (thanks to the carbonation bubbles), maintaining a thin, yet complete coating over the beer; Lacing is rather minimal though

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Bottle. Dark chestnut color with an large off-white head. Rich malty aroma, molasses and rye. Sweet, almost syrupy flavor, maple sugar and citrus - almost cloying. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Surprisingly complex beer for an Italian brew...

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2004
Ruby/Brown in color, lumpy beige head. Sweet and doughy with a mustyness to it, smells like a breakfast pastry left in a basement. Soft and sweet up front with a middle like a insence smoke filled room, a sharp bitter hop finish, very nice. A surprisingly good beer, one I will seek out again!
