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. No code date, but 2017 release. Appearance: Jet black, opaque, with light khaki colored head. Aroma: Toasted, roasted coffee is strong, followed by a distinct coconut that provides a cream like contrast to the rich roastiness Taste: Really rich malt sweetness, with a touch of caramel, nuts, and bread crust, but dominated by a robust coffee roast, followed by notes of vanilla, cream, and strong coconut. Moderate bitterness just enough to counter the strong maltiness Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a light carbonation. A touch of slickness on the tongue with only the slightest hint of alcohol heat. Finish: Coffee roast is strong after the swallow, with a touch of bitterness as well. Some caramel, nutty maltiness shows up retronasally Overall: Quite a unique beer, putting the rich coffee roast up against coconut to provide complexity, contrast, and balance. Malt character is complex, working in some nuttiness and bread crust with the coffee as well. Medium body and restrained alcohol make this surprisingly easy to drink for a beer with deep malt complexity and roast. Can't really say this fits within an existing style, but a pretty damn good beer regardless

A: Pours a pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a nice cap that leaves decent lacing

S: Huge notes of coconut up front along with the coffee and roasted malt. Some dark chocolate and vanilla in there as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a wave of coconut and then goes into the coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Some additional sweetness from vanilla goes well with the coconut. Very lightly bitter. Finishes with lingering coconut and light coffee

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: An amazing porter, especially if you're into coconut. The coffee compliments nicely and provides an extra bit of balancing power so it isn't too sweet. Incredibly easy to drink, too. Definitely worth checking out
