Last Buffalo In The ParkLast Buffalo In The Park
Notes: 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.

Man, this beer RULED when I first had it. Definitely one to drink fresh and not age. Ton of coconut and barrel. I dont hear a ton about FB these days, but this beer was great!

Both last snow and this in the same year, neat! Jet black body with a brown head, standard but well done. Huge coconut right away in the nose, bourbon is present but light, get bakers chocolate and caramel more. Taste is surprisingly similar, while coconut laden nose is fun, want more barrel for the taste. Malt work stabilizes the complexion though, with velvet smooth coffee setting in near the finish. The feel is very smooth, but it is light in both body and barrel, coconut defines somehow even more than LS. Like last snow better, but still a nice porter. Coconut fans this one is for you!

Pitch black with a reddish pink brown beige head of one finger.

Bourbon, coconut, vanilla and chocolate creme. Smells like that amazing suntan lotion on the beach.

Tastes of chocolate, coconut cream, chocolate icing, bourbon, vanilla, all to perfection.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

I got this in Waynesville NC, and am drinking it in Redding, September 23rd, 2020. One of the best beers ever.

Tried the 2017 which was one of the best Porters I've ever had. Great all around nose, balance, mouthfeel, flavor profile and finish. Wonderful fresh and still great a couple of years later.

A tremendous let down. The barrel aged version of Last Snow, and just as big of a let down.

Look: Pours what looks to be light-medium bodied. That’s immediate disappointment. You’re a barrel aged porter, you should look robust and either full bodied, or the high end of medium bodied.

Nose: What’d you expect: Coconut and Barrel mostly.

Taste: Barrel Aged Coconut Water

Feel: Far too light in my mouth for what I’m looking for.

Overall: Like the other porters I’ve recently tried from Funky Buddha, I had high hopes, only to be let down. Beer Advocate has about 150 beers with a 100 rating, and this is one of them. It is not deserved. This is total swill.

Drank 03.24.20 out of a tulip, bottle dated 2016 or 2017, properly cellared.

Hate to say I was slightly underwhelmed. A nice looking beer with a nice feel, not at think as I've come to expect from FB, but still good. Did get a nice coconut smell and taste but think the time on the bottle probably muted both of those a bit. The thing I didn't like as much was the roasty taste, which I guess might be the porter part, but could also be some darker coffee roasts. And no hint of alcohol or barrel at all - this would have help for me. So be it, my opinion. I'd like to try a fresher bottle, but given the cost, probably only if I'm gifted it some day...fat chance at that! Cheers!

A - Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Good amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is coconut, dark chocolate and coffee.

T - The taste is coconut, dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, roasted malts and bourbon.

M - Full body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft dry finish.

O - This is a killer BBA porter. Great balance with the alcohol going completely undetected.
