La Rossa

Brewery: Birra Peroni Industriale
Style: Doppelbock
ABV: 7.2%
Country: Italy

Pour was a dark, reddish amber color with a big and fluffy head that lingered a long time. Lots of grains were present in the aroma along with some dark cherry sweetness. Grain malts were the first tastes that were encountered. The sweetness from the aroma is hard to pick out in the taste which is a shame. The malts have a toasted quality to them which was nice. Slight herbal hop flavors are noticeable but don't do much for the overall Astringency from the alcohol was certainly present which took away from the overall experience. Body was right around medium but didn't have the heft that other doppelbock's have had. This was a dud. Flavors were weak for the style and ultimately forgettable. D+
