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°

Previously 7.8%.

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 (849) - 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 (3847) - 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 (5453) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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)

Bibendum (117) - ITALY - JAN 26, 2012
Schiuma di media persistenza e birra dal colore molto intenso. Retrogusto amaro che però svanisce dopo poco. Sentori di caramello che persistono in bocca a lungo.
