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

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.

larsga (7497) - 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.)

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 alcolicit presente. Finale aromatico di media persistenza. Bevuta alla spina nel Vaffalluppolo.

Oakes (17129) - 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.

Sissio (1585) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAR 5, 2014
On tap at Birratrovo in Como in my opinion is really too hoppy for a dunkler bock also the colour is a bit too pale

Ambro206 (362) - ITALY - FEB 9, 2014
Birra perfettamente bilanciata. Labbondante uso di malti caramellati dona un sapore incredebilmente ricco e complesso che viene per perfettamente accompagnato dalla sapiente luppolatura. Dolce e amaro si fondono in un unico perfetto risultato. Birra corposa, forte, di carattere, ma mai invadente.

3fourths (9315) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Draft sample at Olympen in Oslo. Hazed dark brown with a tan head. Fruity and lightly herbal hops in the nose with cookie batter and baked bread crust malt. Rich melanoidin full body is chewy and sweet and matched well by carbonation and acidity. Mostly clean, lightly spicy / peppery, the Cascade give it a distinct pine and orange note and the bitterness also gives it away as a new world hop. Overall a respectable dunkler bock.
