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.

Pure coffee aroma, very fresh from mid-February, nice soapy head and some lace down the glass. Coffee colour, and medium plus easy drinking understated carbonation mouthfeel. Not much complexity but A good straight up coffee style porter.

This was a very solid porter all the way from hawaii. I had to rock out to some pepper as i enjoyed it. Very thick yet smooth coffee body to it. A bit acidic bitterness, but not much. Solid beer, solid.

This was a good porter, one of my favorites. This has a very strong coffee flavor, almost a little toffee as well. This is o ne of the only Kona beers I like. However, it was a little thin without the distinctive dry mouthfeel of most porters.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Rich coffee aroma, followed by a more mochaish emphasis, also a little tobacco smoke, taste is surprisingly dry and thin,coffee and malt flavors are not very potent, hints of roastedness,and hop bitterness,aroma delivers more then taste

Very faint aroma; vaguely porter scented. Coffee flavor with a strange sour and metallic finish. Not a great porter.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Weak coffee and malt aroma. Very dark brown with a thin head. Medium palate. Strangely bitter coffee and some sort of vegetal component that I just didn’t get at all.

thanks/sorry elgaucho (i stole this at DLD ’07). it was actually something of a surprise because it had such a pure coffee flavor. aroma was just a normal porter, but then the flavor was really fresh, and it seemed like all the bitterness came directly from the roasted coffee. if i knew more about coffee varieties i could maybe say more, but as porters go i found this to be a welcome novelty.

EithCubes (5016) - New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle. Black-ruby pour. Roast coffee nose, more coffee than roast, dry and bitter. Body is thick and malty, taste is of moderately sweet chocolate and roast beans. Light cream and plums. Tingly mf on an otherwise silken palate with a delicious mild coffee/choco aftertaste. A really nice blend, no flavor steps out of line. Very enjoyable. Thanks, Jake!
