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.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.)

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

A surprisingly very good Porter. Toffee, coffee, chocolate and just little bit of a hop taste. Quite refreshing!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This says Florida Beer Gasparís Porter...no where Ybor, although I know it was at one time around. Beer poured from bottle very dark, with gourgeous beige head. Aroma is of toasted coffee, with maybe a back of chocolate. Very nice appearance and inviting. This is a medium flavored porter...not overpowering, but very nice all the same.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not Ybor Gold, but Florida Beer with a mustachioed man on a purple label. Dark cola colored brew with a slightly off-white head. Aromas of toasted grains and coffee. Tastes of burnt grains, bitter/dark coffee, and some smoky bitterness. Dry, chalky finish. Taste is solid, just a bit bitter. Good beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Single bottle. Bottled as Florida Beer, no mention of Ybor Gold. Dark brown pour with a small, soapy khaki head. Aroma of coffee grounds and toffee. Taste is mostly coffee, a little cola, slightly bitter finish. Pretty by-the-numbers porter, typical Florida Beer - good enough but nothing special.
