Birra Moretti La Rossa Doppelbock
Pours transparent mahogany with off white head, not much lacing.
Pretty light aroma of caramel malt, bread, toast, dark fruits and chocolate.
Taste is a *****-smack of very sweet caramel with a touch of dark fruits and a slight hop bitterness to finish it off. Medium body and medium/high carbonation.
This beer ain't bad, but a few sips in to my second helping and I'm admittedly sick of it. A consistent onslaught of caramel makes even a healthy child get a stomach ache. Add alcohol and age to the mix and you got a bad combo. Not to say this isn't good, but it gets old pretty quickly.
