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.

22oz bottle, most recent release, poured into a Funk Buddha oversized snifter glass. Enjoyed on 7.7.16, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a nice jet black color, cola brown hues, opaque, but not overly viscous. A thick, khaki head, about two fingers high appears with good retention yielding plenty of soapy lace. The aroma is fantastic, huge coffee profile, rich, dark chocolate, toasted coconut, mild roast, nicely balanced, rich without being cloying or too decadent, just really inviting and approachable. The flavors are unfortunately disappointing. The booming coffee in the nose is very tame on the tongue, and very bitter, dry, overly roasty with only a tiny smidge of toasted coconut, though it feels a bit artificial. The chocolate character is decent, more bittersweet than smooth and rich with a strong grainy finish that is rather bland. The mouthfeel is another weak spot, a bit thin, lighter body, lively carbonation that struggles to coat the tongue and finishes softly with a light dry bite.

Verdict: A decent adjunct porter from Funky Buddha, certainly not in the same league as some of their stronger beers. The flavoring of this beer just reads a bit artificial and isn't as impactful as the aroma leads on, and at 6.4%, I wasn't expecting a monster body, but I was still surprised at how little texture and backbone this beer had. While I'm sure it will please some, there are a number of better similarly built porters that I would go for first.
