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.

Look: Black, with three inch light head.
Smell: Coconut for days.
Taste: Chocolate, coconut, slight metallic taste but not over bearing.
Mouthfeel: Light and creamy, but complex for a porter.
Overall: Excellent for coconut lovers. Would be a near perfect score if it wasn't for the metallic after taste.

Coconut, coffee, brownie goodness. My goodness this is one hell of a delicious beer. Could I drink more than a couple glasses? Probably not. Would I like to drink this any other time before the end of the day? Probably not. Is this one of the best porters I've had period? For sure. Its sweetness is both simultaneously appealing and differentiating but puts it in my personal category of a night cap-beer. Beautiful black body with a puffy, two-notch head that dissipates and leaves a nice trail of lacing. Aroma is out of this world - coconut, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, brownie and fudge. It literally perfumes the air around the bottle top. Taste is coconut, fudge, bitter chocolate, coffee, smoke, char and brownie. Smooth to a level that's hard to top. Outrageous. Finishes with a nicely sweet and slightly bitter aftertaste. World class.

This is absolutely delicious. The nose is really strong and it's great, so much coconut. Taste leans more toward coffee, either way it was a perfect beer for this rainy weather in Massachusetts.
