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.

Pours brownish amber with a tan head. Aroma seems typical for a bock beer to me. Taste is also hard for me to quantify. Not remarkable to me.

tjthresh (1871) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Moderate malt presents in the aroma. Big hit right off the bat. Toast, caramel, raisin, and cherry are there, but had to search. Brown with some red highlights. Fair head. Flavor was lacking also. It was there, but restrained. Very lively, medium bodied. Alcohol was not hard to find. Over all a good beer, but not a good example of the dopplebock.

12 oz. bottle. poured brown with a nice white head that lasted the bottle and left nice lacing as well. Aromas of malty caramel and dark fruits. Flavors were a bit nutty and still malty. Slightly bitter finish, with some nutty aftertaste too. Not bad.

ABUSEDGOAT (2707) - California, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours a clearish brown color, quite a bit of head. Aroma resembles a pale lager but not completely. Flavor is boring and unoriginal, yet the 7.2% is well masked. A "whatever" beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Poured a reddish-amber color with light creamy head. Aroma consisted of some roasted malt, including dark fruits and some caramel. Fruit, honey, and caramel were all present in the taste, and those flavors were decently balanced. Mouthfeel toward the back and the finish were slightly watery, and a little dark fruit remained. This was a decent example of the style.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Poured a clear brown color with a golden tint. Malty aroma and flavor, sweet with brown sugar and som dark fruit. Light to medium body. Lightly bitter semi-dry finish.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2005
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 (1581) - 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.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2005
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.
