Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

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.

2016 Vintage poured into a tulip. Huge coconut but almost no detectable coffee in this one. Overly sweet and almost artificial tasting. Overall, a miss in my eyes.

From a 22oz. bottle.

A - oily dark brown, minimal tan head
S - Smell was big coconut, overwhelming, couldn't pick up much outside of that. Present as soon as the bottle opened.
T - Just like the nose, huge coconut, but terribly artificial tasting - not necessarily awful, just very artificial.
M - Thin to medium
O - Not a bad beer by any means but tastes more like a novelty than anything remotely world class.

I guess there's a bunch of wizards brewing at Funky Buddha because there's no way this much flavor comes from a low ABV. Coconut, chocolate, coffee, nutty. Liquid Almond Joy!

The coconut is big, bold, but a little artificial tasting. Lots of coconut here. Still very solid. Funky Buddha makes beers that sound like food. But sometimes FB goes a little too far with the artificial flavorings. The coconut, in say, a Hawaiian Speedway, seems more authentic.
