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

Caramel and fruits notes, clear reddish/violet with practically no head, light/medium body, law carbonation, too hoppy for the style for me...not bad but not great.

ThreeCats (880) - ISRAEL - OCT 26, 2016
Clear mahogany with a tan head. Aroma is a mix of caramel, dark fruit, and zest, very intriguing. Taste is less of a double bock and more cascadadian brown ale. Doesnt have the sweetness or fullness youd expect from a double bock, rather its drier and hoppier.
