Pipeline Porter is smooth and dark with a distinctive roasty aroma and earthy complexity from its diverse blends of premium malted barley. This celebration of malt unites with freshly roasted 100% Kona coffee grown at Cornwell Estate on Hawaii’s Big Island, lending a unique roasted aroma and flavor. A delicate blend of hops rounds out this palate-pleasing brew.

In a word: coffee. Nothing more and nothing less. Coffee dominate the nose and pretty much the whole flavor. Almost no body and really not much more to it. Once was enough for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bwa5879 (819) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Deep brown nearly black pour with ring of beige head. Aroma of roasty robust chocolate, a little wet dog as it warmed. Lively cabronation, viscous creamy mouthfeel, finish leaves the mouth a bit numb. Straightforward chocolate maltiness, an effervescence similar to spearmint, a little watery. Okay but nothing outstanding, a little watery.

TXBadger (2006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2014
Probably the best offering from Kona. Big roasted Kona coffee aroma on the nose, with a little cocoa. On the palate, coffee and cocoa are the two big players, with a nice little floral hop note sneaking in.

stravale (2543) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle from Dicey Reilly’s, Ballyshannon [100414]
Pitch black, frothy bubbly tan head that dissipates
Aroma of roasted malts, roast coffee, bit of smoke, mainly mellow dark coffee.
Taste of mellow roast black coffee, some soft roasted malts, dark malts, fairly straightforward, nice coffee in this and not overly done.
Palate - Medium carb, bit over fizzy, light to medium body, bit oily. Soft sweet dark malt palate. Finish - some slight earthy roast malts come out here
Overall - Quite a decent coffee porter, if a bit unremarkable

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Draft sample. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of milk chocolate, RedVines, and coffee. More chocolate and coffee in the mouth, along with black sesame, mild caramel, and red grape. Slightly watery on the palate. Ok, but I was expecting the coffee to show itself a bit more.

Coffee beans, brown sugar. Sweet coffee, roasted malt, clean finish. Well balanced coffee porter, Kona coffee definitely has some deep enjoyable flavors.

JonMoore (2024) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle - black with slim, soon gone head. Roasted malt aroma with coffee. Same in the taste, thinning mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Not bad.

Black pour. Thin whitish head. Some malts but mostly bitter coffee. More complex as it warms. Bitterness fades on the palate. Decent.
