Funky Buddha Last Snow

“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. ”

Final Rating: 4.6/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Funky Buddha tulip glass. Acquired in a trade.

Pours a deep brown body with cherry highlights with a light brown 2 finger head that reduces to leave spotty lacing and a ring of foam. Not thick and inky, very porter-like.

Aromas are mind-blowingly inviting! This is one of the best smelling beers I’ve ever had. Rich coconut, light coffee, and chocolate. Mostly coconut though. Tons of coconut.

On the tongue there’s more.. you guessed it, coconut, light coffee, milk chocolate, almond joy, and maybe some vanilla. Again, mostly coconut but not in a bad way, very delectable. Finish is subtly bitter, probably from the coffee. Mouthfeel is slightly thin, but I can’t knock it because it’s a porter. Sip demanding. Medium carbonation.

Awesome beer. Surpassed my expectations. If you like coconut, you’ll like this.
