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.

This is absolutely delicious. The nose is really strong and it's great, so much coconut. Taste leans more toward coffee, either way it was a perfect beer for this rainy weather in Massachusetts.

Pours black with a fluffy pillowey mocha colored head.
The aroma is intense coconut, a little coffee and a sweet rich dark chocolate. I could dig my nose in this all day,incredible nose.
The flavor is quite a bit more nuanced, there is a great brown sugar and molasses flavor. It's got a great dark rich malty and chocolatey sweetness giving way to a blast of coconut. The coffee blends well and stays blended in the flavor.
It's an outstanding beer, I'll be seeking it out again for sure.

Microscopy reveals this was bottled 2/2/17.

Black in the glass with a finger's tan head. Lovely but short-lived tan lacing.
Aroma is strong coconut, then the coffee and caramel.
Coconut again dominates on the first sip, coffee, toffee, fig. Sweet tasting initially, drier with nut and malt notes as it warms.
Smooth and full bodied, consistent carbonation.

Love to get this year round.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass, one month old. I've also had it fresh from the source, and it tasted the same.

Appearance is jet black with amber around the edges. The tan head is a beautiful one finger thick with decent retention, especially around the edges of the glass.

Smell is straight coconut with lightly roasted coffee, butter, toffee, and some caramel malt. It reminds me of cutting open a coconut for a mixed drink on the beach, absolutely awesome.

Taste still has a ton of coconut, but there is more chocolate and roasted coffee than in the aroma. The flavors work together in complete harmony. I'm getting some lactose as well as the caramel malt. Bitterness is fairly low for the style with moderate sweetness that is perfectly executed.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly watery yet slightly chewy (extremely smooth). Carbonation is fairly low, bit there a nice transition through the finish. Very good feel, but I'm curious how an imperial version would taste.

Overall this is the best coconut beer that I have had and a really good Porter all the way around, so much more coconut comes through. Tons of flavor but not too heavy to drink at the beach, perfect execution. I highly appreciate trying this beer.
