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.

This is a doppelbock? Poor attempt. I can imagine a bad try at a porter or stout, but a bad try at a doppelbock? Never would have guessed.

Deep-red wine color with a nice foamy head. Aroma is pleasant, not overly alcohol. Good malty and slightly fruity flavor (in a strong way). Rich aftertaste, although somewhat sweet. Even so, I am quite surprised! (Unlike any other Italia birra I've had).

Nice dark brown color. Very malty. Suprising for an itallion beer. Much more flavor than I expected. Pretty good but not great.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Pours...well, the exact same color as the bottle. Nice head, plenty of carbonation, and some moderate lacing. Smells of roasted malt. Taste is a little citric for a Doppelbock, but it's pretty good. Palate is a little thin. Overall this is okay, but for a doppelbock I was expecting a bit more.

Overall, not too impressed. Poured into a snifter at refrigerator temp. I recommend drinking this one out of a mug at a colder temp. Aroma and taste was fruity with a bitter wine taste. Dark amber color with no head. At 7.2% I actually noticed the alcohol quite a bit afterwards. I say try it.

Geiserich (3265) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 26, 2003
Dark amber colour with an off-with, frothy head. Fresh malt aroma, fruity. Taste is malty and light sweet. Roasted malt, and alcohol notes. Quite bitter and dry with some hop notes. Good beer, but a to bitter aftertaste for me.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 23, 2003
One of the richer tasting doppelbocks I have tried. Flavors of coffee and a sort of rusty fruitiness predominate. A well made beer which goes nicely with food, but there is something about it that simply does not excite me.

thedm (4920) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 11, 2003
This brew poured a medium sized head of off-white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a noce looking carbonated brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma is a beautiful caramel malty one and the mouthfeel is slightly tingly at the start then smoothens in its finish. The caramel malt flavor is a bit on the alcohol side for a doppel but still good.

egajdzis (5248) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Poured a copper color with a large light tan head that left some lacing on the glass. This is the lightest doppelbock i've seen to date. Malty slightly roasty aroma, possibly some fruits could be found as well in the aroma. Malty taste which also included some caramel, nuts, and alcohol could be found on the way down. Not bad for my first from Italy.
