COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zipline Brewing Co.’s Oatmeal Porter is a winter seasonal brew which casts an unusual spell over its followers—a desire for winter to never end. Incorporating the smooth creaminess of organic rolled oats, our Oatmeal Porter ditches the stout’s roasted bitterness in favor of a porter’s mysterious dark chocolate and coffee undertones. A little creative hopping leaves a balanced beer that’s not your traditional porter.

fidelis83 (2206) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Near black pour with a 1 finger, creamy tan head. Aroma is big on chocolate and roasted nuts, a little old campfire smoke, a tiny bit of char and a nice touch of toasted grains. Flavor is chocolate, char, smoke and roasted nuts, then earth, coffee, light tannins, a hint of toasty grain. Light to medium body, a medium to heavy and sharp carbonation neutral entry, dry, slightly chalky finish. Good overall, but the mouthfeel doesn’t really fit the beer, too dry, thin and over carbonated. Still, pretty enjoyable.

theisti (3497) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2015
12 oz bottle purchased at HyVee in West Des Moines, Iowa as a single. The pour is a black brown, almost opaque, with a ½ inch khaki head. The aroma is soft char roast, faint vanilla sweet, and some nutty caramel malt. The taste is the sweet caramel nut malt, followed by char roast and cereal grain flavor of oatmeal. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and a char mineral finish. Easy drinking, solid Porter.

Bottle. Very dark dense looking pour with a small dense white head. Mild roast and semi-sweet. Smooth fairly dense palate. Yummy.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Opaque black with a miniscule sized beige head. Aromatics consist of dark roast, chocolate, oatmeal, and malt. Full bodied and quite smooth. Flavours present in the aroma are present in the taste as well with the addition of some vanilla, milk and hops in the finish which create a mildly sweet finish that is balanced well with hops and roast. Quite nice.

En fût chez Crescent Moon Alehouse: Plus sur le caramel que le chocolat avec une délicate torréfaction. Équilibré mais sans histoire.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. A pretty uneventful beer. Very good mouthfeel and low carbonation. I wish the flavor was as good. Low roastiness, which is fine, but there is nothing else that steps up. Finish contains off flavors and is a touch sour.

That1Guy (2061) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2014
12 oz bottle pours reddish brown with minimal head. Got some tobacco, coffee, some cocoa/baker’s chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel. Nothing out of this world, but clean and smooth.

Balanced and medium-bodied. Oatmeal, sweetener, some milk chocolate and weak coffee. Somewhat rounded edges and a relaxed palate.
