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.

Finally knuckled under and bought a sixer. Pours a red-amber color, big creamy head. Some aroma of sweet malts...sugary. Nice full mouthfeel, dense, malty; caramel malts. As it warms the maltiness becomes more pronounced. Not much in the way of hop bitterness, but the malts are tempered somewhat. Heck, Im just amazed that this tastes tolerable. Ah, its owned by Heineken....still Im surprised they havent completely killed what is still palatable in this beer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a deep dark red with a decent offwhite head that drops back to 1/4 inch and laces the glass. Aroma of caramel, some plum and fig, and a little smoke comes out of this one. Flavor is smoky yet sweet almost nutty and caramel. It is carbonated well and feels great on the palate. The finish is a little smoky and dry but very pleasant. Nice body to this beer not too heavy for the style just right. This is a good beer..

jasonp (1577) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Beautiful deep clear mahogany with a thick off-white head. Caramel, roastiness, dark fruit and smoke in the nose. Flavor has strong notes of caramel along with toasted/roasted malt, plum, raisin, some chocolate and smoke. Sweet but not cloying. Not really bitter, but has enough hops to balance out the sweetness very well. Finish is a little roasty. Medium body, smooth texture and lively carbonation. Some lacing, good head retention. I enjoyed this one.

Copper brown pour with a thin white head. Head dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is mainly caramel and fruits with some white wine as well. Pretty good taste with a nice kick of alcohol. Mouthfeel has a good burning sensation but lacks creaminess for my taste. Overall very good. A nice find.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 26, 2005
Pours copper brown in color with small tan head. Lots of caramel and fruit in the aroma. Big malty body and flavor. Pretty good for an Italian beer.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2005
Deep bronze in color, minimal head that forms a ring around the perimeter. Thought this was supposed to be a doppelbock, but seeing it filed as a bock on RateBeer is more appropriate. Tangy, caramel malt smell, apples and maple, and a small spicy edge. Taste has a prominent burnt tobacco edge, rich caramel malts and some brown sugar accents. Small hints of apples, pepper and allspice on the backend. Slightly nutty. Much heavier on the palate than appearance suggests - somewhat blankets the palate and coats it like wax. Strong malts presence contributes to the heavily sweetened persona of this beer. Chewy at times. Tobacco presence is unshakable. Finish is like sipping cognac. Nut shell aftertaste; slick but still waxy. Something about this beer reminds me of sitting by a campfire.

Deep reddish/brown light head. Rich malty aroma, lightly hoppy and a little spicyness. rich, malty toast, warm and biscuity, fairly ordinary.

gulf690 (21) - AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2005
Bottle. Reddish brown colour that was immediately inviting and enticing, with a good thick creamy brown head. Spicy nose of cinnamon and mocha, almost like a stout. Very solid body and a very individual (hard to describe, though pleasing) finish. Big on alcohol at 7.2%, but it wasnt really noticeable on the palate. Probably go great with some Italian food. Want something different ? Try this. Didnt know the Italians could make a beer this good.

thegreenrooster (4183) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2005
Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is of molasses with some dark fruits in there. Flavor is a sweet dark fruit, like a plum or date. Alcohol is very present as you swallow. Its ok for the style but the alcohol overpowers so much at the end its hard to put this one over the top.
