Porpora is an interesting Bock hopped with Styrian Golding, Perla and Cascade and dry hopped with Styrian Golding.
Lager in the Hopped Bock style. Bright red colour with ruby reflections. On the nose, caramel notes are neat and followed by clear herb notes from hoppers, finally surmounted by winy and dried fruit scents. It tastes of syruped fruit but it never becomes sickly, thanks to the perfect balance ensured by the hopper. As a whole, this beer has an extraordinary balance which makes it extremely easy to drink. 18°

[ASPETTO] ambra scuro , con riflessi color caco, velata. Schiuma beige, buona presenza, compatta e media presenza; buon lacing [OLFATTO] profuma di caramello, miele, zucchero, burro con una seconda linea in cui si nota un leggero fruttato e la luppolatura, con una tendenza che ricorda le amber ale americane; note alcoliche sfuggenti. [GUSTO] mantiene un approccio dolce dove si ripropongono sapori dolci, caramellati , un leggero tocco fruttale fa da mediatore con gli amaricanti evidenti ma non strabordanti, che si mantengono nel finale, con un colpo di coda nel retorgusto accentuato da una alcolicità sorniona. [TEXTURE] corpo medio, sensazione oleosa e soave al palato, carbonazione media [COMMENTO FINALE] sulla carta si presenta come un bock scura luppolata; personalmente ricorda molto una amber ale americana con un dolce maggiormente marcato ed un corpo consistente. Gioca bene sui due fronti con una maltatura che da corpo e note piuttosto dolci ed una luppolatura che da il giusto contraccolpo senza però pretendere il protagonismo ma mantenendosi costante a fne corsa. buona alcolicità finale che sgrassa la bocca.

Birra dal colore rubino con schiuma pannosa e persistente. Aroma maltato, caramellato e con note tostate. In bocca è lunga e persistente, molto ben equilibrata.

ogivlado (6341) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 3, 2012
On tap at BQ Naviglio Grande, Milano, Italy. Clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, dried fruits and some notes of caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel and hops with dried fruits and alcohol. Rather sweet finish with hint of spices. Interesting but unbalanced.

Grzesiek79 (3485) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 25, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 Rewelacyjny bock z mikrobrowaru włoskiego. Wspaniały aromat i smak, który odzwierciedla wszystkie zastosowane składniki w tym piwie. Ciemny machoniowy kolor i karmelowa nuta towarzyszy do końca picia tej 750 ml butelki.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
75cl bottle, BB 17/04/2013, Lot#L04512, shared with Tomaz. Ambrée, cuivrée, col moyen beige. Arôme houblonné citronné, note d’étable, levure avec un bon fruité rouge. Palais présente une brève amertume, malt caramel bien présent avec des sucres résiduels ajoutant une certaine douceur. En comparaison avec les versions allemandes, ici on ne se retrouve pas avec une bière trop sucrée. Le tout se complète de qcq fruits rouges sur une fine note épicée, amertume présent mais en balance avec le malt. Le tout fini sur une belle rondeur assez épaisse en bouche.

Hazy amber - brown beer. Big tan head. Softish palate with a little prickly carbonation. Rich malt with slightly sweet dark toffee. Malt cream before the seamlessly integrated hop. Nicely joined up. A little bitterness in the aftertaste. Tasty lip smacking beer.

johndoughty (4273) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle. Bronze with a big head which took time to dissipate. Quite impressive presence of alcohol with some background hoppiness. Pleasant but nothing outstanding.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Alla spina. Limpido color rosso bruno con cremosa schiuma beige. Aroma maltoso e dolciastro con lievi sentori luppolati; gusto deciso e ben bilanciato tra dolce e amaro con note di malto, caramello, frutta secca e zucchero abbrustolito; finale amaro, luppolato e persistente. Di corpo medio, è bella spessa al palato e ottima da mandar giù durante i pasti; son curioso di provarla in bottiglia.

goozen (3378) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle 0,75ltr: Beer label with a woman of loose morals on it, hazy brown coloured with very well hidden but identifiable sourness and good hints of caramel. Not really an German Doppelbock interpretation but more an Dutch micro-brew variation.

erickok (4298) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 28, 2012
Mahogony brown, creamy beige head. Clove, nutty, twigs. Not very strong (but maybe a bit cold). Good amount of bitterness to balance the inherit brown sugar sweetness. Bit of a short ending. Nice carbonation. Enough flavour going on. Pretty nice. (75cl bottle, somewhat expensive, shared with paul_kok)
