3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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 If I read the brew date correctly, then my store "Giant" Foods -Harrisburg, sold this beer just out of date.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.
Dark brown with thin tan head
Aroma is malty with hints of molasses
Flava is rich roasty malt with distinct coffee notes
Feels medium with moderate fizz
Finishes mildly sweet and roasty some chocolate notes bus (7) - - JUL 25, 2017 does not count
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 (998) - GERMANY - JUL 18, 2017

A really good Porter with more pronounced Coffee and Chocolate Notes. 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.

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. Michael27 (2224) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Fast schwarz mit schöner Schaumkrone. Die Kaffeenoten sind nicht zu stark ausgeprägt. 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. mjmoen (577) - - APR 22, 2017
C-. Pours a black color with khaki head. Too much coffee flavor for my taste.
