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.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2007
12 oz bottle, via Saarlander. Pours a clear dark brown body under a smallish very fizzy light brown head that faded quickly. Aroma is very roasty and chocolaty with a big burnt coffee kick. Some light chalkiness and a hint of smoke. The flavor is pretty lacking though. Very dry with a heavy roast and coffee base. Finishes with some burnt ashiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with a watery texture and a good bit of fizzy forced carbonation. Overall, this was OK, but the coffee combined with the heavily roasted malts in a way that reminded me of old burnt coffee.

Pretty nice, although I’m starting to wonder to what degree I really like the coffee beers, despite the fact that I love coffee. Aroma is strong with fresh quality roasty cold coffee, a touch of nuttiness, flavor much the same. The finish has a weak coffee aftertaste. A touch on the thin side. Dark red-brown color, small head.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Via trade with Degarth - thanks for the new State!. Very deep clear ruby-brown with an average fizzy-creamy tan head. Smooth roast malt aroma, nutty, light chocolate, lots of fresh crushed-mint, almost grassy pungent hops - good balance. Taste is all the above with thick lactic overtones, very sweet and oh so smooth. Thick, silky mouthfeel, ever so light astringency, no alcohol presence at all - drinks like a hoppy milkshake! Very, very nice.

padrefan98 (854) - (San Diego) Santee, California, USA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle at PetCo park in San Diego. Pours a dark rich brown with a foamy tan head. Coffee and chocholate in the smell and taste. Very nice Porter.

From Sickboy282...Loved this brewery when I was on my honeymoon but never tried this beer, and Alex was good enough to send a few over. Really good porter, Big time coffee aroma, pours black great kona coffee taste at first sip, with a very small, tanish head that is gone quickly. roasted barley finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Draught @ Old Chicagos in Denver: Dark brown, black coffee like hues, thin light beige head, spotty lacing.   Big nose of coffee and semi-sweet cocoa.   Slight milk sugar as well.   Sweet spritzy coffee oriented malt base.   Soft bitternes, slightly dry.   A bit thin, but remains quite flavorful from start to finish.   Lingering coffee and cocoa notes.   Not half bad.

The coffe aroma is actually good. The taste has coffee too but not in such a way that I wouldn’t be able to make it through a whole can. A little sweet in the finish for me but solid.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle. Pours opaque orange-black with thin ivory head. The aroma is fresh coffee, with a hint of baker’s chocolate, some brown sugar, and earth. The flavor is much the same: fresh coffee, bitter chocolate, raisin, brown sugar. The finish and aftertaste are sweet. Pretty good beer, this. I particularly like the roast of coffee they used... it blends quite well with the roasty porter.
