COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 10į and 12į C.

For an Italian macrobrew, this is pretty good. Big malts here, with caramel, molasses, and fruity notes. Decent alcohol presence throughout the beer as well. I think that this actually holds up well against some real German doppelbocks.

Dark color. Dense with a structured body. Decidedly bitter with high alcoholic tenor.

Very lucky to get to sample this malty brew at a don giovanni party very recently... funny though, italian beer for a spanish opera?!? Anyway, there is a soft balance in the malts that allows the caramels to take over. Sort of like sqeezing a stone for water... but in only the best beer-like way.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2004
This was good, a pleasent surprise even. A little lighter than your average dopplebock. It is of course nice and malty, there is a bit of a bitter finish. Itís pretty smooth, a bit on the light side, with a good amount of carbonation. Worth a second try when better dopplebocks aenít available.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2004
Intens red-amber color with a fluffy beige head. It has a light fruity aroma with touches of bread and some spices, also a little sourish touch in the nose. This beer has a very smooth mouthfeel with a fresh and lively caracter. It has an outspoken malty attack with a fine spicyness and dry afthertaste. Thanks Gigi for bringing me this bottle.

Shag (2738) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 8, 2004
This one poured a dark reddish color with very little head. The aroma was cherries, caramel, and raisins. The flavor was quite sweet with the cherries and alcohol standing out more than anything else. It had a very creamy texture to it. I could see this matching up nicely with some italian food. Viva La Rossa!

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Clear reddish brown Head is initially full yet dies quickly. Malty aroma, slight metallic. Caramel in aroma and flavor. German like in taste as most lagers. Overall pretty average and macro-tasting.

ClarkVV (4852) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2004
2004 bottle or 2003 i never know with these imports. Pours a rich ruby and caramel brown/red with a good off-white head. Smells like vinegar, sour yeast, cinnamon and brown sugar/molasses. Flavor is sweet with hints of banana, chocolate and an ever so slight amount of bitterness, more like dry balsa wood. Is this stuff aged in wood (I know the answer to that). Oh well, itís good, as said before itís somewhat lacking but has a good flavor.

jgentgesdo (685) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Bottle. Pours reddish with a thin, tan head. Nose is olives and some kind of spice, stewed hops. Sweetish caramel flavors with a little bitter apple and a smoky, bitter aftertaste that also reminds me of olives. Worth drinking, especially with a big plate of pesto spaghetti.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 16, 2004
A mahogany color, transparent, with fine co2 rising from the bottom. The head is tawny colored, full and soapy with low retention and a sticky lace. Smells of malt and caramel and light hop notes. Tastes sweet and malty with fruity notes and a light but lingering hop bitterness. Palate is light bodied and effervescent with a light dry finish. Not a remarkable beer -- not a lot of character. Somewhere in the middle.
