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.

Lothore (556) - California, USA - APR 26, 2008
A- Pours a very dark brown, letting a small amount of light through. A small 1.5 finger light brown head fades quickly to a little layer of foam. S- Nose starts off with a caramely sweetness leading to coffee. T- Taste is fairly light and coffee forward with a mettalic twang at the end. M- A bit watery, coffee and a small amount of sweetness linger in the mouth but not in a bad way. D- This is very drinkable but for the wrong reasons. It is a bit too bland. The mouthfeel lacks thickness to support the coffee flavor.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pours cola colored with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted chocolate malts, and traces all though small of hops to the nose. The flavor is coffee, roasted, dark chocolate, and finishes with some hoppy bitterness. Good brew.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 Has an amber-blackish color. Solid. It’s smell? Like coffee beans. Tastes like a spicy coffee... oh, is THAT what Kona is? Great idea for a beer. Straight up Kona! Tastes just like coffee beans - not coffee - coffee BEANS. A little strong in flavor at first, but wears on you nicely.Bites on the palate. Medium body. Goes down well, especially after drinking a bit.

AgentSteve (1640) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - APR 10, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2008 This one is all about the coffee. Pours a thin rootbeer color with a light head. Nose is malty and roasty, flavor is heavilly coffee. Not bad, but you better like coffe if you want this one. RE-RATE had on tap at Mission Pizza, and totally different experience. Very plum and summer fruit forward with some toasted malt influence. The finish was a bit dry, but the sweetness hung around a while.
