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°

[750ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Pours a hazy mid-brown colour with hints of raspberry, thin white head. Hoppy bitter aroma with some caramel and alcohol whack – really has the punch you’d expect from a bock, and this continues on the taste, strong malty alcohol with a decent amount of caramel sweetness before the hops comes out. Quite sweet at the end [14112010]

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle@Home, label said 7.8% ABV. In short: well balanced, complex, flavourful and balanced. But in no way I would have guessed this should be a Dunkler Bock. It’s more like American Strong Ale with English hops. Good stuff.

teorn88 (4082) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2010 Good alcoholic aroma. The taste was too bitter. Overall, a discrete beer. A good try but way too bitter to me.

dylan88 (223) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2010
Bevuta alla spina direttamente al birrificio Lambrate. Rispetto ad altre birre dello stesso birrificio mi è piaciuta meno, a mio parere è un pò troppo amara.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - NOV 7, 2009
I just couldn’t bring myself to like this beer, I did try. Malty fruity aroma but overpowered by alcohol. The taste was too bitter for my taste. I wasn’t even able to finish it.
