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

beedman (60) - Wonju, SOUTH KOREA - OCT 17, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2006 12 oz bottle, part of a Ybor City multipack. Pours dark amber wth off white head. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, indistinct malt, and pleasant bitter citrusy hops. Something like aged cheddar detectable in aroma in a tulip glass. Nice beer.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, orangey brown with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt. Rather light-bodied with notes of roasted malt and a vague, burned edge. Very subdued bitterness. All right, but not much of a Porter. 290806

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2006
An amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and hints of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with a dusyt hop note, and a slight acidity. In my mouth this is not a Porter but closer to being a Brown Ale.

madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2006
Bottled. Dark amber coloured. Unclear. Light brown head. Sweetness, cocoa and vague roast in the aroma. Quite bland and vague. Sweet and syrupy flavour. Loads of brown suger (too much IMO). Vague chocolate notes and a slight touch of roast. Light bodied and watery. Sweetish bitter end.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - AUG 30, 2006
12oz bottle poured a dark brown with ruby highlights and a decent tan colored head. Aroma had some sourness along with some toffee, roast and chocolate. Taste had a nice balance with some slight acidity. I think this one could be better if it was fresher.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Another beer of the month club beers. 12 oz. Bottle. Pours a clear red with some off white head and some loose lacing. Malt, brown sugar and a some light coffee. Smooth malt flavor with some roast and a hop bite for balance. Nice beer.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2006
Pours black but still translucent with small white head. The aroma is sweet and malty with hints of cookie dough. The flavor is nicely balanced, with moments of sweetness followed by bitterness and sour. The mouth feel was a little chalky. Overall a decent porter.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Bottle: Pours a black color, nice tan head. The nose is rich and creamy with a moderate roast character, some sweet chocolate and light coffee. The flavor is balanced, tangy and a bit like licorice. I like to see the roast held back on a porter and this accomplishes just that. Nice porter.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 1, 2006
Now we’re getting somewhere! This Ybor pours a light hazed mahogany with a three-finger head that lasts as a thick, cream-colored film. Nutty aroma with touches of caramel, cereal, plum and (dare I say) chocolate. Mid-bodied and creamy with a bittersweet, fruity/nutty flavor. Pretty darn good, but it fails in it’s style category. Tell you what... let’s call this one "Ybor Gold Brown Ale" and it will not disappoint. (As far as the current Brown Ale... well... I for one won’t miss it.)
