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.

Copper tinted brown pour with a 2 finger, frothy beige head. Aroma is caramel, roasted nuts, floral and spicy hops and lactose like sweetness. Flavor is caramel, some rather strong and bitter vegetal notes, like over sautéed Brussels sprouts, a little roast, booziness, and planty and spicy hops. Medium body with a chewy feel and light, but blanketing carbonation. Falls short a bit in the flavor department, but overall I was pleasantly surprised.

Nice malty beer. Recommended by bartender at All Calderone. Pours clear golden brown, fizzy white head. Nice malty aroma. Toasty malt flavor with a hop edge. A little watery but overall pleasant.

Its an okay doppelbock. Not as sweet as the average of the style, but it has a nice mild finish.

kidmartinek (3314) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2014
Brown. average tan head. Lager-like aroma. Pale and light. Flavor is like a dark lager. Medium bodied. Mild bitterness balances the roasted malt character. Very easy for an Italian.

DrSilverworm (5038) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2014
11.2oz bottle, from Party Town. Clear brownish red color. Pours with a nice thin khaki head. Leaves decent, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body, lightly slick. Smooth, moderate strength carbonation. Close to being creamy, pretty full. Moderate bready, dark fruity aromas. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, with a light lagery bite. Solid doppelbock, but light macro type lager bite holds it back.

Has a nice amber color. Drank it Stella Rossa, thanks to the great bar tender! It’s a nice doppelbock. Sweet, with hints of vanilla, oily texture. It’s a runner: good first moment but gone after a moment.

330 ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a dense creamy beige head. Sharp, fruity toasted malt nose with notes of caramel and toasted walnuts. Upfront, sweet toasted malt has notes of brown bread and dried fruit. Later on, there is a chewy, wine-like character with obvious notes of alcohol. Some spicy resiny hops in finish. Overall, very full-bodied and flavorful and reminiscent of the Bavarian Doppelbock style.

Well I might as well continue my Italian streak this evening, at least this doppelbock is a nice change-up from the overload of pale lagers I've sampled today. Has a solid appetizing burgundy brown appearance with a good head and lacing, aroma is light but flavorful with dark fruit and roasty malt. Taste is the same, although the alcohol notes are not masked so well. Also just a bit flat watery texture. On a positive note, the dark fruit flavor is very enjoyable, and the finish is clean. Decent example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

pours a rusty red color with a thick creamy head that left lots of lacing on the glass. the aroma is brown bread and malts. the taste is is malty and bready. also, you do pick up the alcohol in this one. not a terrible beer, but i did not care for it.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle, from Tesco, Cleethorpes. Deep red brown, thin shortlived off white head and gentle condition. Muted fruity berry notes and some roasted maltiness in the nose, more fruitiness in the mouth with a low dry bitterness and some alcoholic notes, more berry fruitiness in the finish with a low roasted bitterness, some earthiness and retronasal alcohol lingering.
