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 courtesy of my friend Noel. Thanks! Dark brown pour with a short tan head. Aroma is toasted coconut, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is toasted coconut, roasted malt, coffee, caramel and chocolate notes. Body is medium with a moderate bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more toasted coconut, roasted malt, caramel, vanilla and coffee. Delicious!

ChadPolenz (1690) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable (base brew: 20A American Porter)

AROMA: Strong toasted coconut aroma. Smells authentic - not like suntan lotion. Coffee is a light/medium roast. Slight cinnamon. Sweet overall, but not faux or sickly. 11/12

APPEARANCE: Opaque black with faint red highlight. Small, dark tan foam. Some lacing. 2/3

FLAVOR: Sweet, milky/creamy flavor up front (not chocolate). Dark malt but no roast or burnt flavor. Coconut flavor emerges at the apex followed by coffee. Faint cinnamon or other spice in the aftertaste. Flavors all blend quite well. Palette has mellowed after six months, but still delicious and impressive. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Smooth texture; highly quaffable. No alcohol presence. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: When fresh, this is an arguably world class S/H/V beer. Even with some age it’s still excellent. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 44/50

(backlog from 13/5) From tap@Mikkeler&Friends. This was a total "holy shit"-moment! Coconut, chocolate, coffee. Super smooth, full of flavor! Was afraid it would be an artificial tone to it, but no such thing. Great!

Draft at Mikkeller CBC 2014. Dark brown, beige head. Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Roasted, coffee, coconut, chocolate, caramel. Surprisingly watery finish, comes across quite unbalanced? (2014-05 backlog)

ciocanelu (1318) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 18, 2016
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has vanilla, coconut and dark malts. Taste is very balanced with coconut, roasted malts and coffee. Body is on the lighter side and has a good amount of carbonation. Really nice overall but I expected a fuller mouthfeel and more complex flavors.
