BEER INFO

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

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
