The beer pours like a porter and looks like a porter. However, it is infused with coffee, to me tastes like you have a porter beer, then youre already a bit too drunk and pour in some Folgers to the beer, and voila, its the Pipeline beer. Maybe its because im so used to porters, but the coffee taste to this beer doesnt blend enough. Not a bad beer, but next time Ill just get a porter.

A middle of the road coffee Porter. Very thin body and faint in aroma and flavor. A good choice to knock bag with a steak dinner. Kona brews better on the lighter side of the style spectrum with their golden ale and pales.

Pintofjoe29 (34) - Dingman Ferry, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Pours the standard black with almost no head. Certainly smells the part...delicious roasty coffee dominates, with hints of mocha and vanilla. Taste is a muted version of the smell of this brew; coffee and toasted malt. I have to say that the mouthfeel is very disappointing for this one. When I enjoy a porter I expect a heartier chewier beer. This one is very thin and watery. Overall this one isn?t bad; aroma and flavor are on point. The thin watery palate is holding this porter back from being great

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is coffee, slightly burnt coffee, roasted malts, sticks, caramel and toffee. Taste is slightly weaker version of the aroma with some tang and carbonation. Not bad.

Poured from the tap into a 20 OZ mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a dark brown to black color with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and a little coffee. The taste was more coffee driven. I really enjoyed this beer.
