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.

The beer pours a deep, dark brown, more amber when light catching the beer's edges, and is topped by a thin tan head that retreats quickly to the glass's edges before fading completely. The nose wreaks strongly of coconuts upfront followed by coffee and some chocolate as it warms. The taste reminds me most of samoas, but I can definitely see the "liquid mounds bars" description. As expected, coconut dominates the flavor profile, but the taste does transition to burnt toffee, caramel sweetness and bitter coffee in the finish. Although it's a porter, I'd anticipated more body to match the beer's heavy flavors. The carbonation is low (better than mbcp) as is the bitterness and like magic, every flavor seems to be distinct and noticeable (except for the subtle cocoa buttery richness emblematic of white chocolate). The roasted malt in the finish is all that remains of the beer's fleeting porter base. I'll admit, this is an exceptional beer, which I would definitely recommend to others, but slightly prefer mbcp

Wish this had a tad thicker mouth feel. There's a coffee shop in Central Florida that makes a coconut mocha almond latte called the "Coco Mocha Joy" and this literally smells just like that. It's one of the best smelling beers I've had. The taste isn't far off from the smell. Last Snow is a great smelling, great tasting porter. Just wish that it was a little bit thicker and stayed on the tongue longer. A lot of brewers make really unbalanced coffee beers, but I feel like this one is spot on. Well done, Funky! Now I need to find some MBCP :D.
