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.

12 oz. bottle. Coffee black with a thin tan head. Coffee, anise, smoke, dirt, hops, and a tiny bit of alcohol in the nose. I’m immediately surprised at how bitter it is, not expected. Good flavor, coffee, smoky malt, coffee. A little astringent. A solid for the style.

blipp (7863) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle. Poured black with a beautiful brown head. Smells primarily of chocolate and roasted malt with some notes of caramel and a hint of coffee. Medium/full mouthfeel. Taste pretty bland. Chocolate and roasted malt are most noticeable, with some notes of hops, caramel and coffee and a bit of a metallic aftertaste. A very underwhelming beer that could use something more. A stout should not be this easy to drink.

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2008
12oz. Black beer with a tan head. Aroma is mostly sweet malt and a bit of sour. Flavor is coffee, sour malt, and not a whole lot else. Fairly soft overall, a bit lacking in character, not my favorite oatmeal stout.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Pours a dark dark dark brown to black with a good enough tan head, thinning to a small loose assemblage of large bubbles in a film. The nose is rather as expected. That is, stout-like. No flaws. A bit chocolatey. A bit roasty, a bit creamy. A bit sweet. Well balanced, with some small floral hops. Perhaps a bit nutty, nice. Smooth full bodied texture with very small even bubbles. Decent enough viscosity. Slightly bigger fan of the flavor. Sweet stout all the way. Creamy, full sweet malt, with a hit of roast, definite chocolate and a good measure of roasty to fruity acidity to balance her out. Naybe some floral hops too. A lingering fruity acidity with a roast bite in the very end. A well executed sweet stout, if I’ve ever had one.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle. Small, dissipating head on this standardly dark stout. Aroma of deeply roasted cashews plus a bit of malted chocolate. Wonderfully tiny bubbles on the tongue. A bit sticky goin’ down . Flavor more sweet than bitter & slightly lactic. Sweetness is well balanced by slightly acidic coffee flavors at the end. More chocolate than coffee, overall, though. Nice.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Pours an opaque deep brown/black with a hearty huge head that sticks to the glass. Smells of a hint of coffee, chocolate, caramel, maybe roasted nuts. Taste is just as the smell suggests. Nice and full in the mouth with little carbonation. A delicious oatmeal stout indeed

ndubs360 (114) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Poured into a standard pint glass. Pitch black with a small brown head which dissipates rapidly. Aromas of vanilla and roasted malt aromas more pleasant than the taste. Taste os of burnt malt and smoke. overall, a wuality brew, but would prefer a different oatmeal stout.
