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.

Botted. Opaque black, small tan head. Toasted coffee beans aroma. Medium to full bodied. Roasted, bitterish, quite typical lower ABV oatmeal stout. Mild toasted and hoppy aftertaste.

Definitely get the bittersweet finish. Slight cocoa tastes. Oatmeal comes a bit in the aroma but not so much in the taste. I’ve had more complex oatmeals before but this one is nice but not overly exciting.

Bottle. A solid oatmeal stout. I definately prefer this oatmeal to others that I have tried - much tastier and more pleasant. Very good all aorund and very balanced - no characteristics that jump out as outstanding though. I may purchase again if in a stout mood again.

Bottle. Dark, dark brown color, brown/beige head that dissipates pretty quickly. Some cocoa, coffee, nice spicy dry bite at the finish. Another great Anderson Valley beer!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2006
Black colored,vanishing beige head. Strong chocolate with sweetness in aroma, roastiness, toffee and mild alcohol there too. Good aroma. Medium bodied. Also flavor is rich with plenty of chocolate, sweetness, roastiness and some licorice. Aftertaste has good balancing hops, which last with touch of chocolate.

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Pours dark brown with a thick deep brown head. Rich roasted malt aroma with some chocolate tones and woody hops in the background. Medium / full body with quite a bit of soft frothy carbonation. Taste has roasted creamy malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Finish has some spicy woody hops up front with the roasty malt in the background - bit of a reversal of how the taste are distributed in the inital taste. Very enjoyable stout.

JohnnyJ (4483) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Pours a dark black/brown with tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Aroma and appearance are quite good. Flavors of predominately chocolate, roasted malt and oats. Hints of coffee and pine. Has a bitter smokey finish, which is kind of odd for a sweet stout. Smooth mouthfeel, but a little to thin. Good stout, but a little thin and bitter for the style.

(Bottle from <!-- A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank -->Julio’s Liquors<!-- /A -->) Pours very, very dark birch-beer brown with a thick tan head. Aroma a bit piney, along with chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel smooth, a little oily, very slightly prickly. A few rings of lace. Flavor is fairly rich and bitter coffee with baker’s chocolate along with a bit of pine. Only very light hop bitterness. Lightly sweet. Nice.
