COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With its deep, dark brown-black color, thick, full-bodied, velvety-smooth mouth feel, mocha character, and, strong yet subtle hop bite, Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout is one of the thickest, richest, and most complex stouts on the market today.

Roasted chocolate smell with a little of vanilla (7/10). Deep dark colour with low foam (3/5). Medium sweet taste. Very soft for an stout, but great (8/10). Creamy texture with a light body (4/5). A soft and creamy stout. Usually I don’t like Stout that much, but this one was great.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2015 Black, medium brown head. Roasty sweet toffee on the nose. Medium modied, nice and smooth. Some residual hoppiness, finishes on the bitter and warming side despite low ABV. Good!

leghorn99 (50) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 18, 2015
Si presenta nel bicchiere di un nero impenetrabile; schiuma non troppo abbondante, di grana grossa, ma con un cappello di buona persistenza. Aroma di malto tostato, cioccolato fondente, caffè, e arrosto. In bocca sorprende la leggerezza, corpo medio-pieno, buona carbonazione. Il gusto riprende quanto percepito all’olfatto; parte dolce con malto tostato e cacao, per poi raggiungere un ottimo equilibrio, con finale amaricante di arrosto e caffè.

Poured from a can into a tumbler on 04.15.14. A: Motor oil. 1/2 finger tan head. S: Toffee, caramel, coffee, milk chocolate. T: Milk chocolate, coffee dominate. Roasted malt is there too. M: Creamy. O: This is a perfectly balanced oatmeal stout. It is sweet, but it doesn’t go too far. It’s very subtle all around in terms of flavor.

ZodiacM (162) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Een bijna zwart bier met een cremekleurige schuimkraag. Geuren van gebrande mout, caramel, chocola en vanille. Deze vind ik ook terug in de smaak. Deze is redelijk fris voor een stout, en gezien de 5,8% alcohol wat aan de lichte kant. Toch blijft de smaak redelijk hangen. Een lekkere stout, maar had wat meer body mogen hebben.

Very solid oatmeal stout. Pours black with a small off white head. Aroma is light roasted malts and toasted oatmeal. Taste is smooth, nice body, toasted oatmeal and roasted malts with some mocha. Very nice and easy drinking.
