A very nice and unique porter. Pours a beautiful deep brown-black with a tan head. Smells great, vanilla, chocolate, mint and herbs. Taste is similar, quite herby with vanilla, chocolate and spices. Had on tap at the taproom on Oahu.

sawbuck (732) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Chocolate, and a bit of coffee on the nose. Nice sweetness up front, quickly balanced with a slightly dry bitterness. Medium mouth feel. Surprisingly relevant and tasty in a tropical environment. Solid.

Draught at the Kona Brewing Co, Hawaii Kai, HI. Dark reddish brown color with a small tan head. Roasted malt, sweetness, chocolate and mild hops in the aroma. The flavor is roasted malt, sweetness, chocolate, vanilla and some hoppy bitterness. Balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.1
kathouse (1888) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Much drier that the Pipeline Porter. Plenty of roasted malts provide an ashy flavor and a dry finish. Needs a little sweetness for balance.

3.5
dfinney23 (3268) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Dark pour with a thin but creamy head. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. I wish they were already canning this on the island.
