Hey, an Italian that doesn't taste like Budweiser!

Beautiful brown color, the taste is pure roasted malt on the front end and the finish is hoppy and almost a little sour. Not exactly in my sweet spot, but still the best Italian I've ever had.

If only Moretti put this much effort into their lager.... Nice rich brown color with thick fluffy head. Aroma of molasses and roast grain, taste is same with some dried fruit thrown in. Very nice indeed!

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/26/2014. Pours clear deep ruby red/brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness/roast, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness/roast, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness/roast, raisin, plum, fig, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good doppelbock style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

From a mug at Via Napoli in Epcot. Pretty copper color. Not much aroma but a wonderful malty taste. Not much in the way of hops. Dark bread flavours. I'd buy it again. A good late night beer.
