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.

Birra molto equilibrata, per essere una birra della Moretti a mio avviso è stata fatta con con verso, nonostante i suoi 7,2 vol non viene rovinata.

Both. Pours a dark brown color with no head. Malty bready taste. Would go well with a nice pasta dish. Decent

mircoas (95) - ITALY - AUG 27, 2014
33cl @ bottiglia. Zero aspettative per la Moretti che in generale fa birre di merda. Invece questa è discreta e bevibile.

33cl bottle. Pours clear dark reddish with one finger of quickly disappearing light beige head. Aroma is very light, some caramel and a light metallic note. Taste is roasted malts and caramel with light plums notes.

jjsint (785) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, consumed at home. Ruddy brown, clear-ish. Small tan head. Black cherry, basil, toast and chocolate malt aroma. Sweet and fruity taste with a heavy malty character. Full palette with plentiful carbonation. A well-crafted strong beer. Would I have this again? In a hot minute.

Hanoi (405) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Nose is caramel, nuts slight coco. Taste is overpoweringly sweet, slight nut and caramel with the faintest smoke in the finish. Touch of metallic. Mouth feel is fine. The sweetness overpowers and drowns out all the interest.

dexcansino (454) - Andalucía, SPAIN - AUG 7, 2014
Cerveza color caoba, con espuma blanca que desaparece rápidamente. Olor acaramelado y sabor malteado, toffee, miel de caña. Ligeramente especiada. Refrescante y con gran cuerpo.

Senka (497) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2014
33cl bottle. September 2013. Drinkable bock. Malty but quite light on the body. Resembles fortified lager. Not bad, but not good.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Classic Italian, a dark Doppelbock with Vienna-like characteristics. Tasted in Venice in 2004. Light beige foam, colour a dark burgundy brown, darker than amber. Quite complex malty aroma, caramel, nuts, lightly toasted and even very faintly smoky accents; taste likewise, malty, sweetish, multi-layered, overall caramelly, very enjoyable with a clean, smooth finish.
