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°

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.

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

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.

3fourths (9367) - 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.

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..

Clear dark amber color, thin off white collar. Nutty nose with milk chocolate, caramel and a slight bit of floral hops. Taste is milk chocolate, caramel, licorice, and roasted malts. Not real hoppy in the tasty but pretty pleasant and easy to drink. Slightly sweet in the feel but off setted well by the hops and licorice root. Medium feel, low carbonation.

Hazy pour, thin head, fantastic aroma from the hops, bitterness compliments the sweetness. A very complex bock. Nice!
