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°

lello4ever (1168) - ITALY - AUG 22, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 Ambra scuro, schiuma sottile. Aroma di malto tostato e caramello. Molto bene al palato, tostatura, dolce con un finale leggermente amaro, sentori affumicati, legnosi di medio livello. Buona la carbonazione che accompagna la bevuta.

oliodnb (662) - ITALY - NOV 5, 2014
Draught @Lambrate Pub, Milan. Pours reddish amber with an off white creamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, citrus, hops. Taste is sweet with malts again, very light roastiness, caramel, red fruits. Very good fruity hoppy finish balancing the beer overall sweetness. Very good.

3.5
The Etruscan (704) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUL 20, 2014
Off white foamy full lasting head. Mahogany colour. Aroma is malty with fruity (cherries, banana and prunes), slightly spicy. Flavor is malty too with prunes and plumes and hoppy tones, ending in a balanced moderately hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

3.6
larsga (7630) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
Small beige head. Hazy brown body with carbonation. Roasty earthy dusty wooden aroma with spicy sugary notes. Dry-sweet roasty sugary rye crisp bread taste with resiny wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish resiny wooden caramelly aftertaste with papery sugary notes. Nice, drinkable, vivid. Full of flavour and very clear. (0.25l draft at Schouskjelleren, Oslo.)

4.3
BrunoSanchez (190) - 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.

3.8
Oakes (18568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2014
Dark red-brown and thin head. With the glass, this looks for all the world like Schlenkerla Urbock. Aroma has nice maltiness, slightly chewy, and with light toffee...not really all that hoppy mind you.
