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.

So, what do the folks in Florida know about snow? Well, if Last Snow is any indication, they know quite a bit! Build for cooler weather, snowy evenings and the need for a nightcap by the fire, their winter warmer starts with a bold porter base and layers it with copious amounts of coconut and chocolate.

Expectedly dark brown and with a rich swirl of latte froth, the beer's dessert-like scent is full of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, coconut and chocolate. With a pep of coffee and nuttiness, the taste opens sultry with decadent sweetness, redolent with Mounds candies.

The sweetness of the porter slathers the middle palate with booze-soaked sugars, lightly seared and boldly toasted, the richness of bittersweet chocolate, toffee, caramel, vanilla and nougat saturates the tastebuds with the satisfaction of German chocolate, walnut brownie and shaved, toasted, candied coconut. A nutty finish brings elements of nutty columbian coffee and a kiss of rum to the finish.

Rich, decadent and lavishly full in body, the beer's imperialized strength is met with lingering sweetness and creaminess in body. Balanced with peppery booze, its rum-like influence is front and center in finish. A long undercurrent of chocolate and coconut trail into a deep and satisfying aftertaste.

22 oz bottle picked up on recent trip to FL and glad I did! Poured into pint glass.
A: pours an almost pitch black body with hints of reddish brown when glass is held up to light, frothy +1 finger mocha brown foam head, some carbonation
S: fantastic toasted coconut aroma, rich milk chocolate, small hints of coffee, slight sense of a pepper spice
M: medium light body with a juicy feel on the tongue
T: big punch of toasted coconut, sweet milk chocolate, light roasted coffee, slightly watery in the middle leaving a juicy feel, hints of pepper bitterness, ends with sweet coconut milk like on the tongue.
O: cool great brew and glad I found this!
