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.

Bottle states to enjoy fresh, but no date found. Oh well.

A: Pours black with a mountainous brown head on top. Great head retention but not much in the way of lacing.

S: Big coconut aroma right off the bat. Loads and loads of it. Mild coffee to boot, with quite a sweetness backing it up. Mild chocolate in there too. Very sweet and rich and inviting.

T: More of the same. Very sweet and rich coconut right out of the gate. You can practically feel the coconut oil on your tongue. Once the sweetness fades, the coffee kicks in with a nice bittersweet and earthy bite. It's not over the top however. A touch of dark chocolate in there as well, towards the finish. Lingering coffee between sips, mainly.

M: Super smooth, rich, creamy and drinkable. One of the best.

O: Really fantastic porter. The mouthfeel is off the charts good. Great combination of rich/sweet and bitter with the coconut/coffee combo. Great balance, great everything. Excellent work, Funky Buddha.

L -- 1,000 lumens passed through the glass reveals a blackish red body with good filtration. Great retention and lacing. Two-finger medium-tan head produced with moderate pour
S -- Coconut, milk chocolate, almond nougat, vanilla, creme brulee, medium roast coffee, graham cracker, marzipan, and a hint of lemon zest. It's like a melted Almond Joy
T -- Milk chocolate, caramel, coffee syrup, cream, vanilla, coconut, marshmallow, nutty toffee. Semi-sweet, but drier than expected given the aromas. Coffee flavors are a tad stale
F -- The weak point of this brew. Although the mouthfeel is much fuller than most porters of the ABV, it still feels rather limp and watery. No fluffiness or velvety qualities, although it is very creamy. The finish feels artificial
O -- Dessert-in-a-glass, decadent adjunct porter that I'm more than happy to see occasionally distributed up here in MA. The coconut character is nice and robust

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.
