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°

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.

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.

Birra caratterizzata dal caramello, note secche, erbacee dovute alla luppolatura, la quale garantisce un buon equilibrio fra note dolci e amare. Birra molto beverina. I luppoli utilizzati per la Porpora sono: Cascade, Styrian Golding e Perle. Colore ramato intenso, schiuma abbastanza persistente, buona carbonazione. Birra ottima.

Red brown colour. Texture is really rich, smooth and creamy. Quite a sweet malty taste with caramel then a touch of bitterness in the finish. Hop comes through in the aftertaste quite well.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - SEP 20, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Creamy beige head tops a beautiful deep red Altbier. Nose starts from a complex red fruits bouquet, namely ripe plums & black cherries, a nice burnt caramel, to a subtle noble hop hint. Well bodied, starting with a firm maltiness & ending with a really bitter dry end. Fantastic.

BrunoSanchez (160) - Fermo, ITALY - APR 15, 2014
Birra ambrata oscura con schiuma bianca. Al naso aromi caramellosi e di miele di castagno. In bocca risulta robusta di corpo e molto concentrata. Intenso sapore di caramello amaro bilanciato da una dolcezza giusta che nasconde leggermente la alcolicità presente. Finale aromatico di media persistenza. Bevuta alla spina nel Vaffalluppolo.

Ambro206 (215) - ITALY - FEB 9, 2014
Birra perfettamente bilanciata. L’abbondante uso di malti caramellati dona un sapore incredebilmente ricco e complesso che viene però perfettamente accompagnato dalla sapiente luppolatura. Dolce e amaro si fondono in un unico perfetto risultato. Birra corposa, forte, di carattere, ma mai invadente.

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.

Bottle at GBBF 2011, Day 1, shared with Ken and Paul. Pours cloudy ruby with a big, off-white head. Nose holds some toast and dark fruits. Really damn sweet flavor, loads of dark fruit, toast, mild leaves and brown sugar. Slight dough and yeast. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Just damn sweet in the finish with notes of toast and fruit. Really damn tasty. This is what I expect from a dunkler bock.
