Kona Pipeline ....

Today I will have a Pipeline Porter, with 100% Hawaiian Kona Coffee, from Kona Brewing Company.  5.3% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 23 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thin, rich colored head that was a little darker than tan.  Beer color is a very dark reddish brown.  A very small amount of light can be seen around the edges of the glass when it is held up to the light.  The aroma has primarily coffee and cocoa notes.  The taste has coffee, toasted malt, cocoa, and some nut.  The coffee blends in well and is not overpowering.  Just a small amount of bitterness.  Dry finish.  A little thin, seems like it could use a little more carbonation for mouth feel.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little bitter, coffee and cocoa.
