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 10° and 12° C.

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - DEC 26, 2002
Had about six of these beers to chase shots of single malt scotch at the company holiday party at Tutto Mare in Fashion Island so I really can’t remember all the flavor/aroma details. I do recall that it tasted thick, sweet, and coffee/chocolatey and was the best beer available at the restaurant (the Anchor Steam on tap tasted infected). Definitely the finest Moretti product I’ve tasted.

MadRobin (2118) - Silver Spring, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Poured from 330ml bottle at Da Marco Restaurante Italiano in Silver Spring, MD. Clear, dark copper/chestnut with a large khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of caramel, toast, light fruit and very mild vanilla. Taste of toffee, mild citrus, toast, caramel and a hint of vanilla. Medium/full body and medium/low carbonization. While not outstanding, this is a pleasant malty doppelbock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3553) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
330 ml bottle. It pours a clear amber color with an off white head. The aroma is decidedly malty with toast and caramel with hints of floral hops. The flavor is a bit thin with some strong toast, lighter notes of dried dark fruit and a decent amount of earthy bitterness for the style. A little doughy and flabby in the middle, but overall this is a decent malty lager. The mouthfeel could be a little better.

Garrold (1890) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Can’t recall where from. Clear, dark copper colour. Thin, lasting, off white head. Fruity, toffee malts. Some vanilla pod. Taste is toffee sweet. A little, balancing, dry bitterness. Nice, smooth, creamy palate. Finishes mostly sweet, with a nad of bitterness. Very decent. Took me by surprise, this one.

hopdog (9270) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle (at Disney World). Poured a deeper amber color with a smaller sized head. Fruity, malty, and caramel. Not bad considering the location.

SODAK14 (295) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a dark, dark amber color with a small head. Rally easy to drink beer with a malty, sweet taste. Wasn’t sure what to expect but I really enjoyed this brew.

ibrubeer (148) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle @ WOB, RSW. Light malty aroma. Clear, dark brown color, large off white head. Pretty nice malty flavor. Body is a little light for a dopplebock. Overall, pretty nice, but a little light bodied.

Diabobale (248) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
non il meglio dello stile, ma considerando la commercialità e l’essere italiana, risulta essere comunque una buona birra
