Description 

Last Snow Coconut & Coffee Porter is an ode to that special time in Florida where the needle dips just south of 75 - even for the briefest of moments. This rich, creamy porter is layered with coconut and freshly-roasted coffee for a taste that recalls a winter wonderland - even if, in our state, that's just a state of mind.

Last Snow is a limited release porter with special flavorings, judged as BJCP Category 30C, Winter Seasonal Beer. 

Coconut, vanilla, and coffee-and-cream are the aromas here, in decreasing order of strength. The coffee-and-cream aspect is especially nice, and would have been adequate all by itself. This beer pours very dark brown with a tall, thick, tan head.  Flavors of bitter chocolate, light roast coffee, coconut, and roasted malt all intermingle.  The flavor is mildly sweet, though the coconut makes it seem more so. The mouthfeel is creamy, silky, and smooth, making this beer easy to drink (if you like coconut, that is).  Overall, it's a worthy specialty beer for those who enjoy coconut.  The recipe seems solid and would hold up well without the special additions (hint hint).
