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 Hawaiiís Big Island, lending a unique roasted aroma and flavor. A delicate blend of hops rounds out this palate-pleasing brew.

pours a midnight black with a touch of ruby, small tan head that doesnít feel like staying around. smell is burnt coffee, roasted malts, touch of cocoa. taste is coffee, coffee and more coffee, nice creamy mouth-feel, donít taste any cocoa as i would expect, bit tanginess on the back-end but not really a bitter. not to impressed with this one.

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Poured close to black with a nice beige head. Aroma, as youíd expect is of coffee. Taste is smooth but the addition of coffee has been overdone. The trick is to add unusual flavors gently so they donít overwhelm the beer. The folks at Kona have a long way to go to perfect this artform. Even the finish tastes more like cold coffee than a porter.

Aroma has a nice dry coffee scent in it. Color is good deep black with a slight purple tone. Carbonation is low with a nice thin tight head. Taste is clean and coffee like. Starting with a medium body it goes down smooth. Finish comes on with a nice coffee flavor that is roasted and smooth. This turns sweet for a moment then ends clean with an after taste that fads in with a dry feel of tasted coffee. This is a very good coffee flavored Porter that would be great on a nice winter day.

More or less black with dark brown head. Coffeeish nose with a hint of chocolate. Beaniness leads, definitely vegetal but this is tampered by a warm sugary body. Slight toast and milk chocolate but mostly cozy pale malts. Comforting rainy day brew.

The beer decamps the 12-ounce bottle a rich deep brown to black with sparkling ruby highlights, the moderate creamy light tan head, crowns the glass, upon its demise, the lacing forms a surrounding sheet on the glass. Nose has a deep rich coffee aroma, sweet malt and chocolate back it up superbly, Start has a pleasing roasted grain presence, sweet with a nice twang at the back, top is light to moderate in feel to the palate. Finish as a beneficent acidity, the hops delectable, and the coffee like taste carries to the slightly bitter dry end, a fine porter, quite a nice drinking beer this one.

Pours black with lacey tan head. Nice coffeehouse aromas. Taste is a little underwhelming, thin body. Faint coffee finish.

10/11/07 From the bottle. Aroma is solid roast malt that seems like a mix of almost all the malt flavors you can think of, with what I can only describe as a haze of coffee floating over it. Appearance is dark brown with a low off-white head. Flavor is slightly sour bitter roast malt with a ton of chocolatey coffee flavors and no hop notes. Mouthfeel is medium/high bodied and has a strong carbonic/roast texture. Overall, this is interesting but not as easy drinking as Iíd like; would like to try after aging for a while.

I first poured this beer and then read the label "100% kona coffee." Crap, itís a work night... does this mean Iím not going to be falling asleep for a long time? Well I canít let beer go to waste so I guess weíll just have to find out. Pours nearly opaqe dark brown/black. I can hold it up to the light and there is a gorgeous red glow. Aroma is rich burnt grains, I donít smell any coffee yet. Flavor is very rich with burnt grains at first and then a mild coffee taste creeps in, not too overpowering though. Finishes similar to a cup of strong coffee. Coffee flavor complements the beer very nicely. Body is just lovely, creamy and smooth. A unique porter... good enough for breakfast!
