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.

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.

Nice look big dark beer with a big hear.

Smells big coconut. Light a cold brew coconut mocha from Starbucks.

Taste has the coconut there but the coffee comes through a little more. Especially on the back end.

Fell is typical porter. A little thin for my liking but it's smooth.

Great beer. Nice coconut beer.

Pours a deep brown to black with a thin tan head. Nose is of coffee and coconut. Taste is amazing! Tons and tons of coconut. Flaked and toasted coconut. Light coffee and roasted malts to it but coconut is the star. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Almost no bitterness at all. This is a excellent desert beer.

We scored this on tap in FL and kept coming back. We drank it as an "after dinner drink".
Beware, if you don't like coconut don't bother. If like or love coconut, you will love this beer. Only around in the spring though.
