Yup, definitely an oatmeal beer. So smooth. It could be hard to pick apart from an oatmeal stout, drinking it blind. This beer has more of a milk chocolate character and less roast, like a porter should. (203 characters)

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

full disclosure - reviewed as impartially as possible from a sample given to me by the brewers (687 characters)

I bought a six pack of these so I hope it's good. I'm trusting you, BA'ers!

Appearance : Pours a pretty dark brown-to-black molten chocolate color. No transparency. The head is beige and starts off at 2 fingers, receding to a small ring within a minute's time. There's little to no lacing left behind on the glass until it gets down to the ring.

Smell : Oatmeal, Karo syrup, bakers' chocolate, a b urn of liqueur. Bouquet is medium strength. Nothing too exciting here.

Taste : Strong alcohol burn right at the front, which is strange considering its measly 6% ABV. Beyond that is unsweetened chocolate, oatmeal, milk and cream, and dry root. Some earthy flavors are left on the palate afterwards.

Feel : It borders on a light oatmeal stout in its depth and creaminess. This, I like. It's very present, sticky, and ends dry.

Overall : I'm just gonna say this much - it's not real great but for $7.99/six pack it's better than most beers at this price. Notice I said most, not all. It's okay, worth a try. Maybe it will catch me on a better day and I can rate this higher. (1,079 characters)
