Notes: 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.

Black in color with minimal light penetration. There’s a fingernail of brown around most of the rim and covering half of the top. The aroma is of coconut, more coconut, and coffee. The coffee and coconut is an exceptionally odd pairing that somehow works amazingly well together. The bitterness and acidity of the coffee helps to cut the sweetness of the coconut. The mouth is dry and crisp.

11/30/2021 - Good looking porter with a tan head that leaves some lace as it recedes, It recedes fairly quickly and completely. A very interesting aroma, I could never identify it if it didn't say coconut on the label. Mouthfeel is good, flavor is remarkable, I don;t taste the coffee, but boy is the coconut obvious. I'm not a big fan of coconut. Well, I got a six; Maybe it'll grow on me.

1/5/2022 - I do like it. especially the mouthfeel. The flavor is good but nothing special. and when I poured it I smelled coconut. Okay, I found the glass I poured an hour ago, half a glass left; tastes good,

Received from @roguer in a NBS BIF #13 box. Canned on 9/23/2020. Poured into a pint glass. It pours a very dark cola color with a half finger of creamy, khaki-colored head and nice sheen of lacing. There is abundant chocolate, burnt coffee, coconut, and mint on the nose, along with roasted malt. Its taste truly follows its smell with the chocolate and coconut dominating. It tastes like a Mounds bar although it's not overly sweet. There is a nice touch of bitterness at the finish. For a Porter the mouth feel is incredibly rich, thick, and creamy. It has lite/moderate carbonation and drinks very easily for 6.4% ABV. Overall, I'm very impressed. It has the flavor and mouth feel of a Stout. Even at 9 months the coconut is robust but not gimmicky. Last Snow is the real deal and I would gladly seek it out if available in New Jersey.

Poured from bottle into tulip, good 2 finger dark tan head, good retention and lacing. Jet black on the glass, no light gets thru. Smells of roasted malt, roasted coffee and coconut on the nose. Taste follows nose, coconut is the king though from the first sip to the finish it is all about the coconut. Not too sweet, and no roast bitterness to speak of. Easy drinking beer

Cannot believe I have not rated this before. While not available here what I have is courtesy of @vabeerguy & @DoctorZombies. This has to be one of my top all time beers, as close to perfect as it gets. I could give it straight 5's but nothing is perfect.

From a bottle into a snifter...this is a really great use of coconut, probably the best use that I've come across...not over-done, but really solid and layered. Also some slightly bitter coffee notes that harmonize really nicely, and some other sweet and gentle spicy notes, too. Smooth and creamy mouthful that still manages to come to a nice clean finish. This is a good one.

Canned 9/23/20. Poured at 56 degrees. Ruby/dark brown pour with clarity under rocky dark tan head; some cap retention leaves a middling sized island of micro dots and a thin ring; no lace, no legs. Strong roast coffee nose with a whiff of coconut behind. Roast!, espresso, burnt brown sugar; coconut on backend. Light body, moderate minus carbonation; bitter roast bite on tip of tongue. Overall, this is a C+ coffee porter; it feels thin, and the taste is good and roasty until I get to the off artificial flavor/linger; whenever I see “made with natural flavors” on the label, I am wary...

Got a from my man Nick, thanks again! Medium black body with a finger or so of tan foam. The smell is laced with full and wonderful coconut with coffee, dark chocolate and a kiss of toffee to boot. Taste has the coconut and coffee meld together beautifully, lush dark chocolate, toffee, and a touch of roasted malts underneath. The body is velvet smooth, so lush and creamy, yet doesn't get stout heavy, a wonderful porter mouthfeel. Just a simply wonderfully made beer

Another porter from Funky Buddha that didn’t live up to the hype for me.

Look: Light-medium bodied, leaning more towards light. Pours black with about a quarter inch of head.

Nose: Nice coconut and coffee aromas.

Taste: Coconut is the most pronounced flavor, and mildly enjoyable with a hint of coffee.

Feel: Was hoping for a nice robust porter. Way too thin in my mouth for what I’m looking for.

Overall: It’s not terrible. Better than the Maple Bacon Soda they pass off as beer. But like the MBP, with a 99 rating on this site, and the great reviews, I expected much more.

Not impressed, won’t do again.
