COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°

interessante bock luppolata..aroma misto maltato e luppolo non invadente e resinoso ma più blando e piacevolmente fruttato..corposa,abbondantemente maltata e amaro derivante dal luppolo nel retrogusto,ai limiti del fastidioso..nel complesso è una birra molto piacevole e facilmente bevibile,al contrario di una classica bock,grazie al moderato uso di luppolo..

Soft acidic fruits coated in sugar in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Too sweet again. But there is some beauty behind it. Hopping is nice. Lovely brew.

FatPhil (13271) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 16, 2016
330ml bottle - Thanks Kairi!
Lovely sweet malty aroma, classic dunkel or doppel bock. Deep red, small brief off-white head. Lovely bocky malty taste, rich and bready, some almond and even bitter almond once the lovely noble hops have kicked in. Finish drying and bitter, but some lovely dark caramel and malt. Very nice strong dark bock, and the hops have put a real kick behind it, this ain’t so sweet sticky boring thing at all. Yay - where’s the bottle? I’m finishing this!

tomer (2850) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 13, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small bubbly beige head, cloudy very light brown to orange color, aroma of strawberry jam and brown bread, jammy flavor with some nuttiness and oxidised notes in the back, light bitterness and a light sourness which feels out of place, Not too good, probably a bit old.
