My first Hawaiian beer. Have to say my rating might be lower than normal since I don’t drink coffee. Pours a medium thin brown caramel head, yet the beer is dark black. The smell is intense coffee, so that turned me off. Tastes very much coffee, I can pick up a little dark chocate. I wish it was more chocolate then coffee I would have enjoy it more. One taste I was done. But I’m like that with any heavy coffee beer. If you like porters and you are a coffee drinker I’m sure you would like this beer. Myself one taste is enough for me. Just keeping it real.
355ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a finger of light beige head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a light roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, a well crafted porter that is balanced and tasty. drmet (964) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2017

A really good Porter with more pronounced Coffee and Chocolate Notes. pintbypint (3640) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2017
12oz bottle. Deep brown with deep orange highlights and a thin beige head that leavds good lacing. Big coffee nose, chocolatey and fudgey, caramel. Taste - bold coffee with chocolate/cocoa notes. A trace of minerals and coffee/dark roast acidity. Medium body. Coffee aftertaste. Just a solid coffee porter. rikstar (2604) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2017
0,33l fles van de AH volgens mij donker bruin met een creme kraag, vrij droog met filterkoffie beerstar88 (587) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2017
Das Bier heisst nicht umsonst Pipeline, Schwarz wie Öl im Glas, mit cremiger Schaumkrone. Süsslicher Röstmalz im Antrunk, starke Kaffeenoten im Körper + dunkle Schokolade sind schmeckbar.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Fast schwarz mit schöner Schaumkrone. Die Kaffeenoten sind nicht zu stark ausgeprägt. Ericular (1019) - Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2017
Mild root beer sweetness in aroma. Taste is also a bit atrifically sweet, decent coffee in the finish. High carbonation. OK but not great. mjmoen (536) - - APR 22, 2017
C-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Too much coffee flavor for my taste. cgreb (422) - Marburg, GERMANY - APR 22, 2017
Bottle - Black beer with off white head. Faint coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavour is malty, toffee and caramel notes. Sticky. Low carbonation. kiwibyron (1) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2017 does not count
Had this one out of the bottle. Large roasted malt flavour. Kona coffee beans come through strongest on aroma and almost as strongly on the palate. More a dry than sweet a porter with low caramel notes for me. Pretty solid beer.
