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.

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!
