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!

Holy shit does this beer smell amazing, like some kind of godly coconut cream coffee pie in liquid form waiting to smash down my face. Really just impressive stuff, though the taste suffers a bit from being too samey, not having a lot of unique qualities and being sort of tiresome after the first glass. On draft at Hunahpu day, an excellent selection to represent this fantastic brewer.

ChadPolenz (1630) - 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!

TheJestersBeer (2364) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2016
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 (999) - 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.

AirForceHops (5877) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 14, 2016
22 oz. Bottle provided by Chalumeaux, thanks for sharing you 900th rating! Aroma is loads and loads of coconut. Liquid coconut candy bar.

The coffee element is nice but the coconut is the dominant flavor. It does shows some light cake batter in the body. Coconut is lingering well after the sip. Body is big for a porter. Yeah, it lives up to the hype. Awesome Porter.

Bomber shared by Chalumeaux for his 900th. Big thanks, TJ! I’ve been dying to try this! Pours Coca Cola brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, toasted coconut. Wow! Flavor is dark chocolate, toasted coconut. Very tasty, but someone should stick it in a Buffalo Trace barrel for a while. :)
