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.

On tap at Funky Buddha Brewery,12 oz snifter.

Thick creamy khaki colored head,consisting of small to large bubbles.Good head retention.Dark black in color,with no light coming through the glass.Light carbonation.

On the nose I get a ton of coconut ,toffee,hazelnut,sweet malts,and coffee.

The palate follows the nose.Tons of coconut,with some hazelnut,sweet malts,and toffee.

The body is medium heavy,with a wet finish.A little bit of carbonation fizzle.

This is a very good porter...I usually hate coconut beer,but it wasn't overpowering,and was well blended with the other flavors.

The best coconut flavored beer I have had and an outstanding stout in its own rite. No one flavor is overpowering and are in a delicate balance. I would prefer a fuller body but on the other hand maybe that would detract from the more subtle flavors. Will buy several more next time I'm in the area

Pours pitch black color with a small tan head that faded slowly and left minimal spotty lacing.

Smells of coconut, brown sugar, toffee, woody notes, molasses, coffee grinds, sweet malt and more coconut. The coconut aroma is ridiculously great to inhale, this is a real treat.

Tastes of very strong coconut up front, with brown sugar, coffee grinds, syrup, sweet malt, caramel, lightly toasted grains and molasses. Sweet but delicious at the same time, with the coconut continuing to be the star of the show. A great tasting porter, it has nutty notes and some chocolate kick in right before the sweetness starts to fade and the brew flows down smoothly. Flows down easy, it was a pleasure to drink and improved as it warmed up. My new favorite porter.

5/6/2017: Cracked open one bottled 02/02/17 and again it pours pitch black color with a tan head which was 2 fingers thick and packed with tiny bubbles, fading slowly and leaving good lacing and rings as it went down. Drank the whole bottle myself and both pours had the same appearance, which was better than the first time I had it - raised the "Look" score from 4 to 4.25. It smells perfect again with strong coconut, molasses, coffee grinds, sweet malt, brown sugar, toffee, woody notes, more coconut and then like icing that you get on donuts. The coconut is great to inhale and makes this beer so special.

Tastes just as good as the first time with very strong coconut up front, then coffee grinds, syrup, metallic notes, sweet malt, heavy cream, toasted coconut (like on coconut shrimp), caramel, toasted grains, cocoa powder, vanilla bean and molasses. Sweet but not cloying and wonderfully complex and delicious. Flowed down easy again, in fact too easy as I wanted to sip it but it went down like coconut water. So damn good that I'm raising the "Taste" score from 4.5 to 4.75.

Overall I had this rated 5 for a total "Rating" of 4.69, but the better "Look" and "Taste" scores pushed it up to 4.81. A fantastic brew and by far my favorite from Funky Buddha. I could drink this every week if I could get it that often. Seek it out!!

Dec 03, 2016 - out of the bottle after dinner
Look: black body with light reddish ring around the edges. Very light khaki, frothy head
Smell: The nose wafted throughout the room and really packs a punch. Heavy coconut with slightly more subdued chocolate and coffee accents. Could enjoy this smell all-day
Taste: Rich, decadent, sweet and creamy chocolate/coconut. Coffee provides a nutty flavor. This is liquid Almond Joy
Feel: Not thick but a full, buttery smooth texture
Overall: Dessert-like qualities that satisfy a sweet tooth - the perfect beer after dinner or for a nightcap.
