Zipline Brewing Co
A Note on This Beer
I don’t want just any Stout — I want The Stout!
The GABF Gold medal-winners at Zipline Brewing made it for those of us who crave a more, shall we say, “adult” Stout. PorchDrinking.com calls it “the Stout that will make you sit back in your chair, nod slowly, and say ‘Yes. Ya done good, kid.’”
Because there’s no cake or cookies or sparkles cluttering up these black-as-night depths — just pure Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout mastery!
Each velvety sip boldly wakes the palate with complex notes of dark cherry, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, and traces of French Roast coffee. A nap in Bourbon Barrels adds undertones of char and just a hint of salted caramel.
The Stout is everything a Barrel Aged Stout should be — straightforward, full of flavor, and boozy. When you need to give your palate a break from the sprinkles and unicorns, it’s probably time to reach for The Stout.
Zipline medaled again at the 2021 GABF this September!

Decent ba stout, nothing over the top though
Boozy goodness. Nuff said.
Very well done. I wonder what a few years of aging will do for it.
Very barrel forward
Wow! A brilliant piece of art! An absolute dream.
This is a troublemaker! Perfect blend of bourbon flavor tied in with a hearty stout. For as big a beer as it, it goes down smooth. And then the 13.8% hits ya!
Busy with great nothing
A solid stout with big flavor. Would definitely recommend
Excellent and straightforward BA
Bold and rich, despite the complexity, makes this a delicious stout!
Really intense whiskey character, almost overwhelms the beer. Underlying stout comes out with a little warmth, rich and smooth, no tartness or ashiness
Pours very dark brown with an equally dark head. The head dissipates quickly but a leaves a nice tan ring. Aromas of earthy hops and caramel. Sweet malt dominates. Flavors of caramel, chocolate, roast, bourbon, and faint umami. Slight alcohol heat but not bad at all for. Nearly 14% beer. Sweetness lingers too long on the palate.
Beautiful crafted simplicity!
I like this stout a lot, really rich and thick
