Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Libbey Stout/Porter glass. Nice looking dark porter with average head. Smells of roasted malts. This beer has a very smooth and creamy mouthful without being heavy. Has a sweet taste up front with some chocolate notes, and finishes with a roasted, slightly smoked malt aftertaste. A very solid porter. The mouth feel is what stands out here, I think the oatmeal does wonders for this brew. Really impressed with what Zipline has one. This will be my go to porter moving forward.

from a 12oz bottle
pours very dark with a substantial dark tan head that borders on creamy, this is a DARK porter, very pretty
good, with roasty malts, dark coffee and hints of citrus, but comes through only weakly
really delicious, deep dark roasted malts are backed up by bitter chocolate, dark fruit and a wee hint of sharp cigar smoke
mouthfeel is exactly right for a porter, light yet substantial, gentle smooth carbonation
overall a very fine porter, hits all the targets without trying too hard, oatmeal richness makes both taste and mouthfeel excellent, my favorite from Zipline

Poured into a tulip glass from a 12 oz bottle.
Pours very dark with minimal head. Reddish coloring near the edge if you hold it up to a bright enough light. Very pretty.
The aroma is malty, with a bit of smoke and chocolate. Also detect some coffee and toffee notes, especially if you let it warm up a little.
The taste is not bitter, very smooth, and has a clean finish. Light mouthfeel when served very cold. Let it warm up a little and its complexity really becomes apparent.
Overall, a great porter.

Poured from a 64oz Growler into a Pint glass, a small light brown creamy head about one finger thick sat atop a nice dark brown almost black brew for a few minutes. You could smell some chocolate and coffee hints and just depth as a Porter should have, taste held the same except a surprising tobacco after note as it warms...never tasted tobacco before so it was interesting. Creamy and rich mouthfeel was nice and overall a great local Porter that was fresh and to the point.
