Imperial Last Snow, first served at Funky Buddha Brewery MBCP release. 6oz serving in a plastic cup.

A- Dark brown that almost appears an opaque black, minimal carbonation and just a slight head.

S- Milk chocolate, coffee, coconut, smells almost identical to Last Snow- cant even notice the additional abv.

T- Coffee, milk chocolate, balanced coconut extract, slight caramel. Very similar to Last Snow except the increased alcohol cuts the sweetness a bit while still retaining a nice smoothness. In my opinion this is slightly better then Last Snow.

M- Very smooth, highly drinkable, average carbonation.

O- If you've tried and liked Last Snow then you'll definitely like this. The imperial version smells almost identical and tastes almost the same with a bit of sweetness cut from it, which in my opinion is a good thing. Definitely worth e try and probably one of the better imperial porters out there.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the Maple Bacon release. Served in a plastic cup.

Appearance - Black. Medium khaki head and a decent collar.

Smell - Coconut and an earthy coffee aroma. Milk chocolate. Smells like Last Snow from the Lounge.

Taste - Coconut, but it has a sharp acidity to it. The coffee is pretty rich, though. Roasted malts behind it in the form of bittersweet chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Not as creamy as Last Snow, which is my primary complaint. Sharp and a little astringent.

Overall - This has all the flavor that Last Snow has when Morgan brews it at the Lounge, but it's just a bigger beer. I don't see why it's necessary for the same flavors to come out of a more alcoholic beer, but at least it has the flavors that Last Snow used to have. It's unfortunate that the new brewery has had to cut corners so much on the original beer that this imperial version is necessary to harken back to the far-better Lounge version.

Serving type: on-tap
