Pours a dark ruby-brown with a tan head that leaves plenty of lacing in the glass.
The aroma is chocolate and malted milk with hints of some nuttiness.
Taste is chocolate and chocolate milk with a hint of roasty char and a slightly acidic finish. A pleasant and lingering slightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is outstanding! So smooth and creamy.
I think this is an excellent, refreshing porter.

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.

Enjoyed form the 12 oz bottle from a friend at work---Thanks Randy!
Pours a deep, dark, muddy mahogany with an excellent head of very light tan foam that dissipates to a thick ring, thin pooling layer, and some excellent lacing. Nose of chocolate, a touch of coffee, and a touch of cream. Flavors exceed the nose with smooth moderately bitter cocoa and a light coffee note on all sides followed by sweet caramel and cream. Soft and creamy mouth feel, rich and smooth. An excellent porter with a medium bitter roasted malt aftertaste. FANTASTIC.

Cheers!

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
