3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Motor oil with a foamy, quickly fading tan head. Wonderful roasted coffee beans, sweet malts, rich, earthy. Lightly carbonated, sweet and nutty with the coffee giving it a slick feel and a slight bitterness. This really smelled great but the flavor just didn’t live up to the hype from the nose. There’s just something that doesn’t quite seem right with this beer, carbonation level, oily feel, lack of "punch", I’m not sure but I expected much more from this beer, especially after the look and smell of it.
Very nice, I like it a lot. I love porters, and this is a pretty nice one.
Probably could use more of an initial appearance and aroma.
It's nice to experience coffee notes from Hawaii.

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 (967) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2017

A really good Porter with more pronounced Coffee and Chocolate Notes. pintbypint (3641) - 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

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. Michael27 (1998) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Fast schwarz mit schöner Schaumkrone. Die Kaffeenoten sind nicht zu stark ausgeprägt. Ericular (1020) - 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
