On tap. Aroma of molasses, roasted malt. Tastes are coffee, sweet chocolate. Thinnish, drinkable. Ok. - 7.0 jbruner (4740) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
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. uhljoseph (66) - TAMPA, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2013
A surprisingly very good Porter. Toffee, coffee, chocolate and just little bit of a hop taste. Quite refreshing!

This says Florida Beer Gaspar’s 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.

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. jcartamdg (3436) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013
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. jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2013
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 (5482) - 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. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2010
