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

A surprisingly very good Porter. Toffee, coffee, chocolate and just little bit of a hop taste. Quite refreshing! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

youdictategood (256) - Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 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.

Pours dark brown with a thick mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, brown sugar and molasses. Taste is sweet, chocolate, licorice, and brown sugar. Kinda thin, nothing special here.

Draft at Land O Lakes WOB. Pours a medium dark reddish brown with a thin tan head. Roasted malt aroma with touches of chocolate and burnt sugar. Flavor has nice roasted chocolate and coffers notes with a good bit of bitterness in the finish.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Entering an old rating, 12 ounce bottle poured a dark brown color, aromas of light chocolate, light caramel, and a touch of earth. Flavors are the same, a little thin for a porter, but decent beer overall.

morrdt (685) - Dirty Moí, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2009
12 oz. bottle, part of the 15 beer variety pack I picked up at Total Wine in Jacksonville. Beer is a dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is a bit of cocoa and a touch of malt. Taste is identical to the aroma, with a bit of hops bite. Nice beer, but a bit rich to drink. Good for dessert.
