Birra Moretti "La Rossa"
Heineken Italia - Milano, Italy
Doppelbock (ABV 7.2%)

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a clear medium/dark brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was fully diminishing and had very poor lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted caramel malts, a mild resin hop and a doughy yeast with notes of caramel, molasses and dark fruit.

The taste was mildly bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset and matured into this bitter acidic taste with just a hint of dark fruit and had a mild alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a nice fruity alcohol taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouth feel was medium in body and oily-yet dry in texture with a lively carbonation.

Overall a nice fruity Doppelbock with a good alcohol warming at the end...
