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.

i don't get this at all. Tastes like flavored (read: bad) coffee.

I will intentionally leave this review under 150 characters so it isn't weighted as important. I hate coconut. Tried this. Hated it. That's all.

Not a fan, too sweet and too many flavors fighting each other... couldn't even finish it!

Pours a black color, with ember red edges and a decent, soon vanishing head.

Smells of ground coffee, coconut and mousse au chocolate big times. The coffee is especially well pronounced, while standing against the sweeter aromas of the beer, it reveals earth, toffee and hazelnuts. The nose offers a unique blend, which turns out to be less sweet than expected, with a well balanced infusion of bitter coffee, accentuated by roasted coconuts.

Has a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied beer.

Tastes of bitter coffee beans, accompanied by a metallic carbonation, increasing the tastes bitterness, while providing a vivid creaminess. Coconut and Nutella add a lot of character to the beer, which doesn't turn dessert-like at any point, due to the distinct coffee presence. It implements an earthy toffee flavor very effective though, which turns a tad metallic during the finish, reminding me of cold coffee.

Easy drinking beer, which got a decent complexity to it, turning out a bit too thin and metallic during the finish. Also the bitterness is a bit too harsh, compared to the weaker implemented sweeter flavors of the beer, initially promising a decent balance. The beers interaction between coffee, bitter chocolate and slightly wooden coconuts is very enjoyable though, while the brew remains recognizable as a Porter.

A big let down. Smelled amazing though, like coconut, maple syrup, and coffee. But it tasted like stale doctor pepper. It was watery and had no beer qualities what so ever. tasted extremely fake.

Average base covered up by in-your-face coconut and thin, stale coffee. Quality mouthfeel though.

A: Pours medium/dark brown, a bit on the thin side, with a collar of light sand colored head. Good persistence but no lacing.

S: Delicious coconut, light roastiness, a bit of vanilla. A bit of a rubbery smell.

T: Light roast and malt, a bit of coconut and vanilla. Pretty watery.

M: Thin, with medium-light carbonation.

O: The coconut is nice on the nose, but overall this is pretty one dimensional, and the taste is decidedly watery. The base is too thin to stand up to the coconut flavor. And unfortunately, the coffee seems to have completely faded.

Good, but the flavor seemed very artificial opposed to a smooth and fully integrated brew. This was just not for me relative to some other beers in this style.

Flavor did not come across as very integrated with the beer even seeming artificial relative to other beers I have experienced in this style.
