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.

Poured black with a thin tan head. Aroma of rich coffee and chocolate. Malty coffee and chocolate notes with a coffee finish. I would definitely drink this again

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a thin, wispy-lacing light tan head. Lightly sweet earthy dark malty aroma has some mocha dark chocolate coffee notes. Body starts with a mild caramel malty sweetness and some toasted nutty notes revealing a slightly more bitter, smooth espresso finish. Not much mouthfeel here, but a decent coffee presence.

12oz - Aroma is roasty chocolate malts and coffee. Pours black with a medium head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is creamy and a little thin. Still a very tasty coffee porter.

Bottled, whilst in San Francisco.
Deep dark brown colour with foaming dark brown head. Lovely coffee and mocha aroma. Smooth chocolate and moca flavour, plenty of coffe flavour as well. Easily drunk at the end of a good days golf.

This is avery nice porter. It pours a dark brown color with an inch of head. It’s roasty with both coffee and malt flavors. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

marcus (6363) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2007
This very dark brown ale poured with a miniscule tan head, and a strong scent of coffee. The beer was served way too cold and the flavor was stunned at first. However, after some warming, the porter-like flavor became evident and blended well with the kona coffee.

troysworktable (109) - Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2007
12 ounce bottle. The pour is a dark brown, almost black, ale with a tinge of ruby at the very edge. The head is frothy and light brown. The bottle claims that this limited edition porter is "made with 100% Hawaiian Kona coffee," and that is apparent in both aroma and flavor. In addition to the coffee, which is the leading flavor, there is also a slight biscuity base and dark chocolate tones. The coffee is an intense, strong flavor, really more like eating chocolate-covered espresso beans. The flavor is mostly bitter with minor sweetness to offset. The bitterness is driven by both hops and coffee. The porter is thick with a light oiliness on the tongue and palate. I enjoyed this, but wouldn’t be able to drink it all the time. I am just not a coffee drinker. I appreciate this porter for what it is, and highly recommend it as a "must-drink" for coffee lovers.

Cranberryboy (18) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Bottle: this beer has very strong coffee tones, you really taste more coffee than you do beer, but if you like coffee than it is a very good beer. Though, I’ve heard it is MUCH better on tap in Hawaii.

jigglyjock (161) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2007 Pours a dark brown/black with brown highlights accompanied by a froathy tan brown head. Wonderful rich, roasty, earthy coffee flavor. Moderate carbonation and slightly watery mouthfeel. Less astringent than most porters I have had. I hate that atringency that the roasted malt in porters usually have. Overall, a excellent coffe porter that hangs back on the astringency.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Pours with a dark brown body topped by a meidum thick, off-white head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a nice roasted coffee note and a hint of fruit. Medium bodied and smooth.
