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.

Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a bottle. This Porter is a deep dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that has decent retention. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee and hops, plus some roasted grain. Medium body with a nice coffee character. Roasted malt, hops and chocolate flavors are all present. The finish is maintains the coffee flavoring with some burnt malt and leaves a lingering hops aftertaste. This beer is pretty solid all around.

Strong coffee taste, overwhelms the Porter. This is what I imagine the coffee filter tastes like. Not my favorite.

12 oz. bottle from the ’Three Bears Alaska’ store in Butte, Montana. Nice dark coffee taste. Very dark, smooth, and yet I can almost pretend that this just a regular porter. I will have this one again.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Pours a dark mahogany brown color with a condensed tan colored head. The foam settles to a thin film with a tiny edge pretty quickly, with virtually no lacing noted. The aroma is primarily all coffee and toasted caramel, with the faintest little bit of molasses sweetness. Likewise, the flavor is pretty straightforward. Coffee, caramel, and a touch of cola are pretty much the only discernible components. The mouthfeel is thin for the style, making it easily drinkable yet also lacking substance. Finishes short and roasty, fading quickly to a clean ending. Decent coffee porter, but lacking too much on the palate.

ChazMania (650) - Pasadena, California, USA - DEC 7, 2007
bottled. i agree with most of the other reviews in that it pours nice and dark with a small tan head. Texture is very smooth. Flavor is roasted toffee and espresso. Not over the top at all. Easy drinking porter with a low alcohol conent.

lb4lb (2453) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Bottle from Las Vegas.
Pours Pours black with ruby edges and a nice foamy tan head. Smell is cream and coffee all the way. Very espresso like and very noticeable, but not over the top. Taste is smooth, roasty, creamy and coffee with no burnt, charred or acidic notes from the coffee. Could be a slight bit thicker but as is, it is a very nice drinkable porter. Very balanced and one of the nicer coffee beers I’ve had.

On Draft- Kona Brewery, Hawaii. I’m biased with this one since I am such a big coffee lover too. Poured a minimal head, but wonderful aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste was consistent with the aromas, big flavor, cocoa and coffee together was like dessert in a glass. Well done- I need to try the coffee part with the homebrew....

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle. Black colour with red hints. Brown head. Aroma is sweet coffee with tiny notes of smoke. Taste is lots of coffee. Very good, an alternative to ice coffee perhaps?

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle. Pours mostly black with dark brown head. Aroma is all coffee and chocolate. Flavor is more of the same with some maltiness, coffee, and chocolate. Smooth and creamy. This is one of the better coffee brews I’ve had.

In a 12oz bottle. Ah, a combination of my two favorite liquids. The aroma is quite pleasing, a strong but not overbearing coffee character. And the flavor is similar...the coffee does not drown out the porter grains, but adds just the right touch of richness. One of the best Hawaiian exports since Don Ho.
