BEER INFO

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

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Rotating

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.

A: Poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a dense two finger light tan head which retains well and leaves minimal lacing
S: Smells of a whole lot of coconut with some coffee and roasted malts in the background
T: Taste is coconut and coffee with some roasted malts and a hint of bitter dark chocolate. Swallow is more roasted malts, coconut, and coffee.
M: This beer has a medium body with light carbonation that is adequate for the style. The beer has a slightly drying finish as well.
O: Overall this is a pretty nice beer. It has good flavors and some nice complexity. The coconut and coffee play well together but it is a little adjunct heavy for my liking. Still enjoyable though.

22oz bottle. No code date, but 2017 release. Appearance: Jet black, opaque, with light khaki colored head. Aroma: Toasted, roasted coffee is strong, followed by a distinct coconut that provides a cream like contrast to the rich roastiness Taste: Really rich malt sweetness, with a touch of caramel, nuts, and bread crust, but dominated by a robust coffee roast, followed by notes of vanilla, cream, and strong coconut. Moderate bitterness just enough to counter the strong maltiness Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a light carbonation. A touch of slickness on the tongue with only the slightest hint of alcohol heat. Finish: Coffee roast is strong after the swallow, with a touch of bitterness as well. Some caramel, nutty maltiness shows up retronasally Overall: Quite a unique beer, putting the rich coffee roast up against coconut to provide complexity, contrast, and balance. Malt character is complex, working in some nuttiness and bread crust with the coffee as well. Medium body and restrained alcohol make this surprisingly easy to drink for a beer with deep malt complexity and roast. Can't really say this fits within an existing style, but a pretty damn good beer regardless
