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

I am a huge Ybor Gold fan, and this is my least favorite. If I want to drink a Porter, this is the last place I want to turn.

12 oz bottle via Degarth (thanks!). Pours a dark brown/near black with a small head. Nose is toasted grains with some raisin notes. Taste like it smells with some roasted malt, some nuttiness, a light/medium body and moderate carbonation. not bad.

Probably the only beer this brewery makes that is remotely drinkable. And the only think i can rate it good was the color. Some hint of coffee in the aroma. very light. Pours dark brown. The flavor has some coffee and a hint of chocolate, very mild.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Bottle. Maple syrup, creamy chocolate malt aroma. Dark reddish brown color with small but persistant head. Smooth, creamy chocolate malt flavor with a hint of grapes in the finish. A very nice tasting porter - on the light side.

DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Pours blackish, but a gorgeous deep ruby through light, with 2-finger khaki head. Aroma of roasty malt, chocoff, grapes, berries, brown sugar. Tastes vinous, with grape and berry, plus some roasty malt, chocolate syrup, and brown sugar. Good complexity and balance. Smooth and eminently quaffable.

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 (25075) - 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 (30185) - 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 (10618) - SÝborg, 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.
