COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Cakes (447) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Tastes of chocolate, coffee and malt. Nice lacing but to heavy on the carbonation. Too much chocolate for a porter in my tastes. A little more like a coffee novelty beer. Disclaimer. If I read the brew date correctly, then my store "Giant" Foods -Harrisburg, sold this beer just out of date. That certainly could be a factor with my rating that is coming in lower than most others.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

pintbypint (3733) - 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.

Michael27 (2224) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Fast schwarz mit schöner Schaumkrone. Die Kaffeenoten sind nicht zu stark ausgeprägt.

3.4
Ericular (1032) - 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.

C-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Too much coffee flavor for my taste.
