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.

piscator34 (1965) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Black in colour with slightly lower than average carbonation. Very nice milk chocolate aroma, along with secondary notes of coffee. More of the chocolate and coffee thing in the mouth, along with some nice dark crystal malt notes and a touch of oatmeal sweetnes... although everything was a bit more muted than anticipated. Only medium bodied, which again, was a bit of a surprise. A solid beer, but not in the same class as some other stouts that I’ve tried.

Black with a brown head, nice roasty aroma. Good roasty malty flavour with a salty and slightly dry finish.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2006
From Draft. Dark black, opaque pour with a medium roasted marshmellow head. Light aroma of roasted oatmeal and milk chocolate with a nutty almond coffee scent as well. Creamy texture, with more of the roasted oats dominating from the sip to the final smack. Some oaky woodiness leaves a leathery feel on the palate.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Pours black with a surprisingly dark one-finger head. Wonderful chocolate and coffee aroma. Light oatmeal and a very slight hop presence. Roasted malt and milk chocolate dominate the flavor. Ends on a lightly hoppy note, with a sweet, nutty finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

Gachupines (901) - USA - MAR 24, 2006
Black with lingering dark tan head. Taste is rich, smooth, and a bit sweet. Slight hoppiness underneath the sweet stout taste. Not terribly bitter, but rather easy to drink.

Rich dark color that pours thick with a tan head. The aroma is that of chocolate and coffee. There is a sweet hoppiness on the palate wtih slight lingering.

Ron (2526) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2006
One bottle from BOTW. Poured a very thick dark body that thick tan head that stayed around. Aroma of roasted chocolate. Sweet palate with some hops. Very enjoyable.

roner77 (35) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 14, 2006
A thick black body with a creamy, although thinner, chocolate head. I very nice mouthfeel that is not to sweet nor dry. Hints of nuts and roasted flavors. A very accessible stout, could certainly drink this often

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Pours a thick, deep black with garnet highlights and a creamy, tan head that deflates slowly. I found some floral lily notes in the aroma amidst the strong coffee roasts. Creamy mouthfeel with a flavor that alternates effortlessly between sweet chocolate and bitter coffee. Sweet and fruity yet savory notes after, adding a mouthwatering saltiness to the finish.

P.S. I might have me a "collector’s item" bottle as mine ended up with the back label from AVBC Summer Solstice!

(22oz Bottle. 03/2006 ... etc.) Thick, viscous, black. Creamy, brown head. Dark chocolate and roasted, almost but not quite coffee, notes. Earthy. Almost no hop bitterness but a definite balance as the finish is clean and dry. Big, velvety mouthfeel with a medium-full body. Long lingering rich, dark maltiness.
