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

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.

Papsoe (25085) - 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

madsberg (10309) - 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.

DocLock (7915) - 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.

shrubber85 (7746) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Courtesy of Degarth. Pours clear amber with tan head. Doesn’t look as dark as most porters I’ve tried. The aroma is roasted malts, molasses, mild caramelization and no real sign of even faint burnt malts. The taste is mildly roasty with some just as mild burnt malts, faint earthiness, some kettle caramelization and notes of grainy malts. Pretty nice but not much of a porter influence as I think a porter would taste like, in my opinion.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle from Degarth. Pours brown with a rocky head. Smells nutty with some roasted elements. Tastes soapey with some mellow fruity notes. Strage metallic aftertaste I couldn’t get away from and there were also some weird bubblegum and spicey notes present.
