Questa è la migliore birra italiana. This is by far the best Italian beer that is easily found in the States. It smells of sweet caramel and has a subtlety sweet taste to go with it. Gives a full feel in the mouth and easily goes down. A friend of mine from Naples swears that this is the best macro brewery of Italy, and I agree.

Very tasty Italian version of a doubble bock. I'm glad to see our distributor putting some marketing backing on this beer. I am holding out hope that I will start to see this beer on tap around Portland soon. With it's rich matly goodness I can only imagine how great it will be on tap.

This crimson red brew is awesome. I read some articles on this and it claimed to have a "out of the pizza oven aroma" and it came pretty darn close. Definitely a beer to try.A liquid bread that certainly is a savior.

La Rossa Moretti pours a deep dark blackish red from a dark brown 12oz glass bottle. The tan head went over two fingers with good heavy and thick bubbles that leave lots of lace down the sides of the glass.

Nose is a yummy sweet malt with toasted fig and raisin. Palate is a major explosion of flavors, first is a tawny port with a pleasant sundry of dried fruit that mask the 7.2% alcohol by volume content that starts a nice glow in the tummy after just a few sips.

All of this and from Italy, some one has done their home work for sure on this World Class “Doppio Malto” beer. I now have a favorite Italian beer and La Rossa Moretti is it!

Nutty, especially sweet for a Doppelbock. Nice butterscotch note on the pallet .

I was extremely impressed with this one! It poured very red, hence La Rossa. Slightly off-white head that subsided to a thin haze in about 30 seconds or so. Very nice lacing. The smell was very, very malty and sweet. Quite tempting just by the appearance and the way it smelled. Tons of malt in the taste. A little bit of a roasted taste. Very slightly hoppy for just a moment. The mouthfeel was really smooth. Very drinkable. Fantastic!
