COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pipeline Porter is smooth and dark with a distinctive roasty aroma and earthy complexity from its diverse blends of premium malted barley.

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Pours an opaque dark brown-black, with light tan head that quickly dissipates. Some lacing of the beer, but not too viscous. Smell is of coffee, but more sweet than burnt. Beer tastes mainly of coffee, with some roasted malt in the background. Other flavors such as chocolate and caramel are also present but way in the background. It’s the coffeeness of this beer that takes center stage. Some flavor of alcohol in the aftertaste, but not too overpowering. Palate is very pleasant, with thickness appropriate for a porter. Has a creaminess with some slight accompanying effervescence. Overall, this may be one of the best coffee-based beers I’ve ever tried (and I’ve had many). Credit goes to the porter, which doesn’t have the burnt taste that can mar some coffee-flavored beers. Excellent beer.

pintbypint (3630) - 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.

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.

Mild root beer sweetness in aroma. Taste is also a bit atrifically sweet, decent coffee in the finish. High carbonation. OK but not great.

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.
