BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Funky Buddha Brewery
Florida, United States
funkybuddhabrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Imperial version of our Last Snow porter is a rich, thick, decadent treat. Pitch black and viscous, it's made with coconut and fresh roasted coffee. We then age it in Bourbon barrels for months to accentuate the vanilla and coconut notes. Originally brewed in collaboration with our friends at Park Tavern in Delray Beach.

This beer tastes like cheap artificial cheap coconut. I just can't appreciate a single aspect of it. It's like drinking a bottle of barrel aged sun tan lotion.

Shiny black with thin brown edges and a tiny wisp of tan film consisting of the only visible carbonation.

Smell is super fresh and abundant coconut, with cocoa butter, and even chocolate covered popcorn, transitioning to smooth, soft chocolate on the tongue with plenty of coconut, and not too much barrel actually, although it is quite strong and sweet.

This is pretty darn tasty but I think the hassle of getting it, not to mention producing it, is not worth it, as I enjoyed the regular, even non-imperial version more.

650ml bottle, 2016 release. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark chocolate brown body, mocha head comes up to about one finger, good retention, thin film, nice lacing. Smell is intense roasty coffee, more coffee, milk chocolate, touch of white chocolate, and bourbon sweetness. The coconut isn't really there. But the coffee is great. Flavour is more intense roasty coffee up front, transitioning into a milk chocolate, white chocolate sweetness followed by bourbon and a dash of coconut. That's pretty nice. It's all there for you to taste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy, smooth with a nice coconut and white chocolate sweetness on the backend. Another hit from Funky Buddha, I think I like this batch compared to last year's Snowed In.

Pours a black color with very little head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is fantastic! Picked up notes of toasted coconut (nearly burnt), hazelnut, vanilla, and bourbon of course. One could say it kind of smell like a tootsie roll. It taste very sweet throughout - almost like a milk stout. The flavors include strong notes of toasted coconut, sweet chocolate, hazelnut, mocha coffee and bourbon. The list of flavors are almost endless. Delicious. The mouthfeel is smooth and almost creamy. Overall: a great beer that carries a lot of flavors in one bottle.

Batch 2? Delicious but the bourbon character is a bit lacking; it comes off as a generic boozy heat. This hits the aroma harder than the taste. Quite thick but there's a lingering alcohol burn at the front and sides of the tongue. Coffee is a bit lost. Base seems great but the coffee and barrel treatment aren't adding a whole lot.
