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.

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Pours an opaque dark brown-black, with light tan head that quickly dissipates. Some lacing of the beer, but not too viscous. Smell is of coffee, but more sweet than burnt. Beer tastes mainly of coffee, with some roasted malt in the background. Other flavors such as chocolate and caramel are also present but way in the background. It’s the coffeeness of this beer that takes center stage. Some flavor of alcohol in the aftertaste, but not too overpowering. Palate is very pleasant, with thickness appropriate for a porter. Has a creaminess with some slight accompanying effervescence. Overall, this may be one of the best coffee-based beers I’ve ever tried (and I’ve had many). Credit goes to the porter, which doesn’t have the burnt taste that can mar some coffee-flavored beers. Excellent beer.

If you're a fan of Kona coffee, then you'll love this porter. Seasonal offering during the fall.

rondphoto (3340) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 21, 2016
on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Aroma of toasted malt and coffee. Clear mahogany brown with a tan head cover, stripes of lace. Taste is bitter toasted malt that adds coffee on the swallow, growing to a finish that hardly needs hops. Solid, particularly at 5.3%.

Geruch röstig, kaffeeartig, dunkles Malz, leicht säuerlich. Startet dunkelmalzig. Mitte röstig, Kaffee, Schokolade. Abgang bitterschokoladig, röstig, kaum Süße, die eh gestört hätte. Gutes Porter - das ideale Bier während des Rasierens.

Thanks to Dave. A mellow, quaffable coffee porter. Smooth and pleasant, with nothing out of place, but not superior.
