Rum Barrel-Aged Last SnowRum Barrel-Aged Last Snow
Notes: Last Snow is an ode to that special time in Florida where the needle dips just south of 75 - even for the briefest of moments. This rich, creamy porter is layered with coconut and freshly-roasted coffee and then aged in rum barrels for a taste that recalls a winter wonderland - even if, in our state, that's just a state of mind.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- dark brown color, two finger foamy khaki head, great retention

S- toasted coconut, chocolate, caramel, molasses, raisins, oak

T- heavy rum forward barrel, molasses and dark fruits. Mid-palate gives a bit hit of coconut and caramel, followed by chocolate. The finish gives more rum with coconut on the linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation, foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- super rum forward, but works well with the base beer

Poured into a snifter. Huge rum aroma with faint coconut and caramel. Nice mix of coconut and rum on the palate. Slightly boozy but enjoyable overall. Full bodied.

650 mL bottle. Pours black with a big khaki head. Smells of rum, coconut, coffee, lactose, and charred oak. That all smells fine in isolation, but it doesn't quite smell great together. Tastes of lactose twang up front, rum, coffee, oak, and then a coconut aftertaste. None of the Last Snow flavors work here. Sweet, almost tangy, very oaky, and the coconut doesn't work. Medium body. I heard the rum was excessive, but that really isn't the problem here. The rum and coconut seem to combine to make a sharp flavor that detracts.

Like most everything from Funky Buddha, the shining feature of this beer is the nose. Wonderful notes of coconut, coffee grounds, and a touch of rum waft out of the pour. We preferred the taste of it cold, though as it warmed it wasn't bad. I just felt like the colder version had a little more showcase of the diverging flavors while the warmer version lost that. If you can get it inexpensively I recommend trying it.

I love Last Snow, and feel Snowed In/Last Buffalo In the Park to be fantastic barrel-aged versions, but I couldn't stomach this one. The rum is too overwhelming; you do notice the base beer a bit with the white chocolate, coconut and coffee in the background but the rum gives a hot burn on the backend that just makes it so unpleasant to drink.

Poured a dark, dark brown color with a small tan head of foam. It smelled like so much coconut. It was like sun tan lotion. Very sweet beer with tons of coconut taste. Too much coconut for my liking.

Pours dark brown/black. Good rum barrel on the nose invites you to take a sip. The coconut and rum meld together to create a very nice and flavorful concoction. I enjoyed the extra sweetness from the Rum barrel, as well as the different flavor profile it created with the coconut. Less of a "coconut bomb", that other iterations of snow, but I enjoyed it.

22oz bottle poured into snifter.

Appearance: black body with khaki colored head.

Smell: This is smells really hot. So much rum barrel in this beer. Boatloads of coconut as well. Vanilla, oak, and spice.

Taste: This is where this beer will blow your mind. The rum barrel is so perfectly integrated into the taste of this beer. You smell the beer and you think it will be a booze bomb. Well it could not be more dialed in with the rum barrel and coconut flavors. The coconut is so huge without tasting like suntan lotion. Not tasting much of the coffee.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Moderate carbonation levels leaning towards the lower side of moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel, but not motor oil. Slightly thin, but on par with the usual mouthfeel associated with funky buddha adjunct / barrel aged dark beers.

Overall: This is of the same cailber as Last Buffalo in the Park. Funky Buddha made a fantastic Rum barrel aged porter.
