The flavor of this is amazing, so much coconut and coffee. However it is also sickeningly sweet. Could never drink this whole bomber. Even 3 of us didnt finish it

This is the best smelling beer I have ever come across... it's a massive coconut bomb with a coffee note taking the back seat, but still present. I find myself wishing it was more viscous and with a higher ABV, it is quite thin and would be the absolute perfect beer if it were heavier. For the style though, it is among the best I've had.

Summary:
Look: Medium to dark brown, slightly transparent, caramel head
Nose: Oh my god this is the best thing I have ever smelled in life.
Taste: Man, I wish this tasted as good as it smelled...
Feel: This is flat out too thin.

Good beer. If they did the same thing they did with "Wide Awake It's Morning" (the imperial version of MBCP) for this, it would be a world stopper.

12 oz Draft at Extreme Beer Fest Afterparty at The Merchant on 3/20/15

Look: Dark body, carmel-ish head
Smell: Deep coffee and coconut scents
Taste: Amazing roasty coffee and coconut flavors mix well with nutty dry porter flavors and smooth out with a touch of vanilla-ish flavor. Decadent!
Feel: Rich, almost more stout than porter
Overall: Maybe the best porter i've ever came across (and its my favorite style)

Pours a black color, with ember red edges and a decent, soon vanishing head.

Smells of ground coffee, coconut and mousse au chocolate big times. The coffee is especially well pronounced, while standing against the sweeter aromas of the beer, it reveals earth, toffee and hazelnuts. The nose offers a unique blend, which turns out to be less sweet than expected, with a well balanced infusion of bitter coffee, accentuated by roasted coconuts.

Has a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied beer.

Tastes of bitter coffee beans, accompanied by a metallic carbonation, increasing the tastes bitterness, while providing a vivid creaminess. Coconut and Nutella add a lot of character to the beer, which doesn't turn dessert-like at any point, due to the distinct coffee presence. It implements an earthy toffee flavor very effective though, which turns a tad metallic during the finish, reminding me of cold coffee.

Easy drinking beer, which got a decent complexity to it, turning out a bit too thin and metallic during the finish. Also the bitterness is a bit too harsh, compared to the weaker implemented sweeter flavors of the beer, initially promising a decent balance. The beers interaction between coffee, bitter chocolate and slightly wooden coconuts is very enjoyable though, while the brew remains recognizable as a Porter.

Not a fan, too sweet and too many flavors fighting each other... couldn't even finish it!

A - Poured a deep brown colour with a thin layer of light brown head.

S - Massive sweet coconut up front with chocolate, roast and lighter coffee notes.

T - Liquid bounty bar! Sweet coconut and milk chocolate with some bitter roast. The finish is sweet milk chocolate and coconut that is slightly artificial tasting. A bit too sweet overall, but very good.

M - Medium body, somewhat creamy. Light carbonation.

If you like coconut, this beer is pretty good. If you LOVE coconut, this beer is amazing. If you don't like coconut, this beer is terrible.

Pours a nice midnight black with a 1/2 inch, quickly dissipating head.
Smell is incredible! nothing like it, huge coconut-coffee- faint chocolate is one of the best noses on a beer that I can remember - totally unique!
Slight bitterness from the coffee stands out - medium body. perfect hints of chocolate and coconut again - one of the few beers that is able to bring the coconut flavor out that I've ever tasted.
Soft and smooth finish, very drinkable.
This is well done, very well balanced brew - not over powering in any one taste-lots of depth and spice.

I really wanted to like this more, but sadly, it was a little more thin than I had anticipated.

Thanks to Mark and Elliot for cracking open this beer!

If you love coconut, this beer is a must try beer. Super rich and authentic coconut flavor is just oozing from the aroma and flavor profile of this beer. Not smelling or tasting much coffee in this porter. Lots of milk chocolate and vanilla flavor and aroma. Medium bodied porter with very creamy, decadent mouthfeel, and near perfect carbonation levels. Funky Buddha Last Snow proves to me that no one else can do such great porters that are brewed with adjuncts. I thought Maple Bacon Coffee porter was excellent porter, well Last Snow is even better! Funky Budda definitely "upped the annie" with this adjunct porter!

A: Pours medium/dark brown, a bit on the thin side, with a collar of light sand colored head. Good persistence but no lacing.

S: Delicious coconut, light roastiness, a bit of vanilla. A bit of a rubbery smell.

T: Light roast and malt, a bit of coconut and vanilla. Pretty watery.

M: Thin, with medium-light carbonation.

O: The coconut is nice on the nose, but overall this is pretty one dimensional, and the taste is decidedly watery. The base is too thin to stand up to the coconut flavor. And unfortunately, the coffee seems to have completely faded.

Out of a bottle into my tulip. Finally got around to a review.
A – Coca cola brown on pour with a quarter finger of head that leaves a clingy light brown lacing on the glass.
S – Liquid mounds. Coconut, milk chocolate, cream and coffee. Absurdly good smell.
T – Same as the smell. Coconut in force with a nice backing of milk chocolate. Coffee flavors roll through right after with a light cream taste. Touch of the coffee bitterness at the end. Sweet but not cloying.
M – Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Lightly slick on the palate. Leaves a bit of sweetness.
O – Awesome. Delicious. Heaven in a glass. I love coconut and coffee so this one resonates with me. I have had many chances to drink this and love it each time. So glad its bottled now.

Good, but the flavor seemed very artificial opposed to a smooth and fully integrated brew. This was just not for me relative to some other beers in this style.

Type: 22oz. Bomber
Glass: Fiddlehead Teku
Vintage: End 2014 (?)

Pours a light black w/ brown hues, like cola, w/ a 1/2 finger off white head that leaves light lacing. Aromas of caramel, coconut, coffee, and some spices, mainly cinnamon. This literally smells like coffee poured over a fresh cinnamon bun, amazing! The flavor opens w/ coffee and quickly moves into light caramel malt sweetness, and closes w/ spices, coconut water, and enough hop bitterness to balance. Medium bodied and lush w/ appropriate carbonation. This one goes down in a flash! Do not share!

Overall, hands down the best beer I have had the pleasure of drinking so far in 2015. The aroma on this one is just mind boggling! Funky Buddha brought the funk like George Clinton on this one.

Nice creamy porter with huge coconut flavor/nose. It goes into the sun tan lotion realm, which is a bit far. The coffee emerges as it warms to help balance. It's close to liquid Samoas.
