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.

Alengrin (230) - 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.

Bottle. Clear bronze appearance with a small head. Malty and smooth with a sweet finish. Not a lot of complexity but quite pleasant to drink.

ruigo (1037) - PORTUGAL - JUN 14, 2014
20cl on tap. Pours a reddish brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma is sour, fruity and bread. Soft carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is not consistent, quite light, but a little more bitter than sweet. Overall, a promising aroma that is not pared by the flavour, but quite drinkable.

A doppelbock indeed. Malty, sweet, light bitterness. Not bad considering their pale lager.

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear ruby colour, with an off-white head, which rapidly dissipated to nothing. Aroma of cooked berries, straw and candy sugar. Malty flavours, with some brown sugar and grain. Finish was surprisingly bitter, quite astringently so, with some redcurrant and caramel in the background.
