COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap. Jet black color with a one finger head. A coffee scent. Sweet taste of chocolate and coffee with a very short aftertaste. Feels watery on the palate.

Fantomasus (226) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Pours black coffee. Aroma is nice: kona coffee, cereal, hops are hard to find, some dough, leather?, more coffee... Taste is balanced with a nod to bitter. I wound up not enjoying the watered down iced coffee feel. Won’t buy again. Won’t drink again.

wilnatp (622) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Pour is deep brown/black. Aroma of coffee and chocolate, but not the overwhelming smoke that some porters have. Taste is not bitter but the coffee comes through nicely. Thin mouth-feel, but full taste.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle 12 fl.oz fom Bier-Bienne (CH). Dark brown beer with fugacious beige head. Roasted aromas of coffee, cream, plum. Slight mouth, torrefied with fruity and earth. Taste with coffee household and its bitterness, notes of toast, macadamia, smoothness and fluidity. It’s not this coffee which will irritate.

WillemsUrenkel (638) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2014
Consuming 12 fl. Oz. bottle design. Black in the glass, small short living head, oily texture. Earthy and dark berry fruits with bitter chocolate on the nose. Starts smooth with herb chocolate and coffee. Light salty and sour, hop discreet but permanent present in the background. Not really what I like.

Love it. Coffee is the most apparent taste. Super easy drinking and not bitter at all which is how porters should be imo

Hiero (129) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2014
A light coffee flavor, followed by a smokey finish. Just enough carbonation. I found the body somewhat light and watery. Ok beer, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to try it again.

Fatehunter (1371) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Pours a thin head on a dark brown body. The aroma is rich cocoa, roasted malt, and lightly roasted coffee. The taste is milky, roasted malt and coffee with just a touch of burnt. Nice. The texture is soft and creamy with moderate carbonation. It has a good balance and great flavor. Enjoyable.

danielecamo (519) - ITALY - JAN 8, 2014
In bottiglia. Aroma di tostato molto intenso, di fondo di caffè, comunque piacevole anche se un pò spigoloso. Al palato corpo medio, tosto che la fa da padrone, con una buona dose di amaro dal malto. Bevuta piacevole

12 oz. bottle. Pour is black with a khaki head and a modest head but good carbonation. Smell is bakers chocolate and expresso with spices. Taste is sweet with caramel and chocolate with a slight finishing coffee note. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
