COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark as the midnight sea, this medium bodied porter combines flavors from 8 malts, including 4 distinct chocolate malts (Victory, Chocolate, Rye and Midnight Wheat) with fresh nugget and cascade hops that work together to form a harmonious balance of aroma and flavor. Imparting a dry roasted malt character, with subtle hints of cocoa, licorice and toffee, this brew possess a balanced hop spice and malty finish.

Formerly known as Ybor Gold Gaspars Porter

Cola black with a nice beige head. The two bottles I had were kinda flat. Muted roasted malts with just a hint of raisin on the finish. Pretty good.

Pours an opaque brown/black with very little/no head. Has a nice cocoa aroma. The flavor is a lil bitter and the palate is thin for a stout.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - APR 12, 2013
12oz bottle poured into glass. Iíll keep this short and brief. I wanted to like this beer but itís just a little too hoppy and bitter for this style. Ease off the hops a bit and maybe it could work.

Pours dark brown color with tan head. Big chocolate aroma with lightly roasted malts and a hint of coffee. Sweet milk chocolate flavor with roasted malts and.some licorice with a slightly ashy finish. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Better than I was expecting.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown/black with a light tan head. Some lacing. Light aroma of roast coffee and dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Dark fruit and roast in the flavor with a slight bitter dark chocolate ending. Not bad.

BurgerBroOrl (6) - Florida, USA - APR 6, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 roasted malt on the nose. hints of chocolate and cocoa. dark liquid with a frothy brown head. it is as described, dark as midnight. medium sweetness, lightly sour, with a very fruity after taste. light body, thin feel, fizzy, and ends with fruit. i get more fruit than roast-ness. itís good tasting, but not what i expected for a "robust porter," and not really what i was seeking, which reflects in my "taste" and "overall" scoring. otherwise itís fair and i really dig the label art. (the more i drank this, the less i enjoyed it. i will NOT buy this again, especially for $10 a six-pack! i probably will NOT finish the 4 remaining beers.)

AWISLguy (2371) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours a very, very dark brown with a tannish head. Aroma has roast, dark chocolate and expresso with a bit of a strange "fishy"ness. Taste is of roasted malts, sweet caramel, some chocolate and faint coffee. A bit thin for a porter, but with nice taste.

jbruner (3849) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste follows with a hint of soy on the back end, bitter finish. Good stuff, easy to drink.
