“This Imperial version of our Last Snow porter is a rich, thick, decadent treat. Pitch black and viscous, it’s made with coconut and fresh roasted coffee. We then age it in Bourbon barrels for months to accentuate the vanilla and coconut notes. Originally brewed in collaboration with our friends at Park Tavern in Delray Beach.”

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Funky Buddha snifter. Thanks Matt for this bottle.
Pours a deep brown body with a one finger off-white head that reduces pretty quickly to leave a ring of foam. On par for a porter.
Aromas are rich and potent – the “almond joy” aromas that everyone describes are definitely there but it’s much deeper than that. Vanilla, whiskey, and roasty coffee are also present in addition to heavy coconut and chocolate.
On the tongue.. chocolate covered coconut macaroons upfront, followed by an almost smokey note, roasted coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla-bourbon, caramel, finishes charred and again, a little smokey. Mouthfeel is slightly thin, but this is a porter not a stout so that’s OK with me. Low carbonation.
Overall just as described. Worth a try.
