Draft at Mr Beery’s. Jet black with tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Huge up front chocolate and coconut aroma. Sweet syrupy aroma. Taste is dryer sit still a bit sweet. Taste has chocolate and coconut along with a graham cracker malt taste. Smores all the way.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at The Merchant. The aroma is nothing short of amazing, coconut mocha brownie. Palate is a bit thin with super soft carbonation. Flavor is good but not great, coconut brownie, mocha lattee, iced coffee. Most amazing aroma in 4400+ beers.

I’m melting... Ode to the Last Snow
Moving forward using all my coconut
Making chocolate with you was never second best
I saw the coffee thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always almond taste
I’ll stop the hype and melt with you
Good but hardly a world class porter it is made out to be on both RB and BA. Too thin of body for the flavor profile plus a tinniness that distracts. Nice to have tried once. Thanks Eric for the bottle.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark brown and opaque with a milk chocolate head and good retention. Smells of toasted coconut and a mild nuttiness. Mouthfel is very full and creamy. Tastes of coconut with a moderate chocolate bitterness. Finishes sligtly bitter with lingering coconut. Reminiscent of a mounds bar.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Got a bottle from a trade. Thanks Thirsty Moe. Pours a dark dark black with a lightly browned bubbly head. An absolutely fantastic aroma of cinnamon coffee laced with coconut. Reminds me of walking into a donut shop in the early morning for coffee before work. A good feeling. A nice roasty coffee right upfront that goes along the whole way. Cinnamon and coconut jumps in the middle and give it a nice sweetness. Great taste. A tad thinner as I would hope for a little heavier creamy feel. Still doesn’t take away from the this one that much. Great stuff.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Dark brown pour with a slightly creamy beige head that slowly settles to a thin, foamy collar & mild skin. Smells like someone threw a coconut bomb into an IHOP restaurant. Sweet coconut, dark chocolate, notes of cake batter, cinnamon, a hint of roast. Dunno why I’m getting the pancake vibe... But it’s there. Coconutty & cakey. Flavor has a nice Mounds vibe; heavy waft of coconut oil with a semisweet dark chocolate essence that cascades over it. Notes of roast, fudge, toasted almonds, & dry caramel lead into a cacao nib & toasted coconut shaving finish. Somewhat thin body, but overall this is tasty as hell.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Tap at Oblivion. Blackish red pour. White chocolate, coconut, cherry and roasted grain aroma. Smooth toasted grain body, coconut and white chocolate taste. Light carbonation. Really tasty brew.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of coconut, dark malts, some chocolate and coffee, light dough, and hints of bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of coconut and the porter. Average texture. A very solid beer.
