COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Last Snow is a version of our porter that is near and dear to our hearts. With flavors of coconut, coffee, and white chocolate, Last Snow tastes like liquid indulgency in a glass. Chocolate covered coconut never tasted so good!

Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is nice, lots of coconut and coffee. The taste is very good. Get a bit of subtle smokiness to it along with the coffee and coconut.

Pours a black color, with ember red edges and a decent, soon vanishing head. Smells of ground coffee, coconut and mousse au chocolate big times. The coffee is especially well pronounced, while standing against the sweeter aromas of the beer, it reveals earth, toffee and hazelnuts. The nose offers a unique blend, which turns out to be less sweet than expected, with a well balanced infusion of bitter coffee, accentuated by roasted coconuts. Has a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied beer. Tastes of bitter coffee beans, accompanied by a metallic carbonation, increasing the tastes bitterness, while providing a vivid creaminess. Coconut and Nutella add a lot of character to the beer, which doesn’t turn dessert-like at any point, due to the distinct coffee presence. It implements an earthy toffee flavor very effective though, which turns a tad metallic during the finish, reminding me of cold coffee. Easy drinking beer, which got a decent complexity to it, turning out a bit too thin and metallic during the finish. Also the bitterness is a bit too harsh, compared to the weaker implemented sweeter flavors of the beer, initially promising a decent balance. The beers interaction between coffee, bitter chocolate and slightly wooden coconuts is very enjoyable though, while the brew remains recognizable as a Porter.

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.

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.

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.

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.
