Poured dark with single finger head. Coffee smell apparent but not overbearing. Pleasant taste and mouth feel but not surprising or special. Would drink again but not necessarily impressive.

Pipeline Porter brewed by Kona Brewing Co., With a an ABV of 5.30% This American Porter pours from a 12oz glass bottle into a pint beer glass. The color of this Porter is a deep brown color with a thick light brown head. The brew has the look of coffee, not saying that is a bad thing. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell is rich with roasted grains and malts, you also pick up on coffee flavors in the smell as well. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is Bold with Roasted goodness. You pick up a lot of roasted grains and malts mixed with coffee flavors. This is a good soild Porter, a base Porter if you will, no sweetness to cover up anything. The body of Pipeline Porter is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this American Porter, it has a super nice balance to it. This brew would go nice with dinner of on a cold winter day. The mouth feel is Bold, Rich, Roasted, Clean, smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Pipeline Porter a solid 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity too. If you are looking for a basic Porter you should look this brew up. Konawing Co., Did a super nice job with this American Porter.

Pipeline Porter | Kona Brewing Co. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head's three fingers thick and light tan, with webbed lacing and a black body,

I smell a pleasing blend of the coffee and roasted malts.

Tastes like lighter coffee with aforementioned malts. Kind of weak IMO.

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Overall, I'll go ahead and ratw Pipeline Porter | Kona Brewing Co. with a 4

I am picking up on the coffee but it is sort of a mellow coffee it is not too bold in flavor. In addition to, I am picking up on some sweet roasted malts, faint cocoa, faint hops. The mouthfeel is light to medium body. This is an easy drinking coffee porter, there is even a bottled on date on the neck. Cheers! B

An excellent porter. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, caramel. Not a heavy mouthfeel. Light and crisp with a delicious coffee aftertaste. I'm amazed that this great beer was on sale at my local liquor store for under a buck a bottle!

EDIT:
After a few days of drinking this stuff, I have heartburn. It doesn't relax me and it's filling. There was a good reason why this beer was cheap!

Nice dark color, very little head. Roasty flavor that can be a bit too bitter but is still enjoyable. Has a nice slight fizz to it too.

Surprisingly flavorful and rich beer, not what I expected from this more laid-back, “local” brewery from the Big Island. Nice rich dark brown, almost black color with just a little head and no real lacing. Smells great, nice rich coffee and a touch of dark chocolate. Tastes similarly, except also with some malt, caramel and a hint of vanilla. Mildly creamy, smooth mouthfeel with a light amount of carbonation and no bitter aftertaste. Well done!
