Nearly black body with a thin off-white head. Very inviting aroma of coffee and cream. Begs you to take a sip. The palate is smooth with some decent carbonation. The flavor matches the aroma. Sweet and smooth up front, and it fades to a nice slightly bitter coffee finish. Wow.

Growler from brown jug, black beer, decent almond colored head faded. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, coconut. Taste is coconut, chocolate, coffee. Palate is good, carbonation subdued. Nice balance between bitter and sweet! Pair with high surf warnings and sex wax.

jjsint (2595) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle from JSG Wine Merchants, Chesterton, Cambridge. Purplish brown, translucent. Flat. The aroma is overwhelmingly of coffee, although there are some pleasant notes of pumpernickel with caraway in here as well. Sweet taste with roasted malt and, again lots and lots of coffee. Not that Im complaining - its nicely balanced - but it may not be the most nuanced beer youre likely to have. Some welcome balancing sourness around the edges of the finish, and theres plenty of carbonation in the body so not as flat as it looks. Very well put together.

Dark brown with a chocolate and coffee aroma. Mid-full body. Lingering coffee flavors. Really delicious

StoutBeerReviews (82) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Nice mild simple porter. light carb and light sweetness, its kinda milky on the backside which is nice. reminds me a bit more of a sweet stout than a regular porter, just not as creamy. was expecting more roast to come through but this wasnt the case. Still pretty nice overall.

hauxe (521) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2017
Pours virtually black from the bottle and leaves a creamy, tan head. Aroma is used coffee grounds. Taste is mildly bitter with both coffee and dark chocolate notes. The overall combination left an odd peppery note in the mouth - as though I was eating a raw bell pepper on the side. Medium bodied. Was served to me a bit colder than I would like and thus a rerate candidate.

Bottle while in Kona: pours black with a coffee aroma, taste is strong coffee flavor and some roasty malts, dry finish

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.

Black. Light roast with a bit of smoked malt. Flavor is mild brown sugar and toast with roast malt.

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.
