Notes / Commercial Description:
Last Snow Coconut & Coffee Porter 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 for a taste that recalls a winter wonderland - even if, in our state, that's just a state of mind.

Tasted from bottle. Pours very dark almost black with light khaki head. Aroma is coconut, cocoa powder, coffee. Taste is moderately bitter with well balanced sweet malt backbone. Flavor is big time coconut with coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. Very well done.

Bomber into a snifter appears black with a rich mocha head that almost appears nitro-like in its creamy consistency.

Aroma has a dominating amount of sweet coconut almost like perfume, yankee candle or suntan lotion moreso than "natural" coconut. Faint roastiness and fruity nuance lay underneath.

Taste is coconut heavy with a sweetness and lingering alcohol/perfume essence with chocolate and fruity alcohol. Not picking up much on any coffee but thats likely due to the domination of abundant coconut character.

This is medium in body with modest carbonation. An interesting offering that just doesnt seem natural feeling, it seems too coconut forward and artificial. Overall not bad not great either. A bomber was too much, I couldnt finish it and would not purchase again.

The coconut flavoring really comes through and has a great balance with the subtle coffee flavor. very drinkable porter. the nose delivers the coconut and coffee flavor, but it finishes super smooth.
