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.

Pours a nice deep black but the head dissipates a little too quickly. Good flavor - some chocolate and roasted nuts are present - and the finish is about average for this category, nice and inoffensive.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2007
Black body with a small tan head. Not much to say about this one. Basic roasted malts flavours and some chocolate. Rather thin body for the style. Nothing wrong with it but I find it to be a slightly below average by-the-number stout. To me, Barney’s oatmeal stout falls flat.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Courtesy of Decaturstevo at the Nashville Tasting. Pours black with a nice brown head. Faint aroma of dark roast with hints of vanilla. Initial flavor of purple grapes, that transitions to flavors of oats, nuts, and dark dry roasted malts. Perhaps a tad thin on the palate. Mild bitter finish

beer pours a deep black with light ruby tints. head is short-lived but leaves lots of tan lace. nose is smooth and chocolatey and rich. flavor is rich and roasty and very smooth - really well blended elements. good hop flavor in the aftertaste. a really good stout - very drinkable with a good level of roast.

EithCubes (5149) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle. Potent chocolate nose with lots of roasted malt and some dry grit to go with the oaten vanilla. Darker pour than your avg sweet stout, near-opaque black-ruby with a lusciously creamy and rocky dark brown head. Body’s watery, but the dry roast taste remains strong. Salty taste, reminds somewhat of Dutch licorice, and some burned notes. Only a restrained tanginess in the otherwise dry and slightly gritty finish. I was expecting a little more sweetness, a little more oatiness, but am still pretty happy with the product.

A fantastic outmeal stout. Very thick. Dark brown head. An excellent experience from my first Anderson Valley Beer.

Bottle. Dark black color. Taste is sweet and almost creamy. Not sure if this is too sweet but has a distinct taste of oats and roasted malt.

grandridge (224) - Port Clinton, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2006
This is probally my favorite oatmeal stout. It pours black with a light tan head. It has a nice roasted finish and sweet and creamy up front. Good beer, I’ve tried a couple of Anderson Valley beers and they all have been pretty good.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
Black colour with a nice head. Aroma of wheat, oat and roastedness. Roasted flavour with notes of chocolate and some fruitness.

From the bottle... great frothy head with solid retention. Not very aromatic, but decent roasted malt flavor on the front end. Not a real malty sweet balance for an oatmeal, but a decent stout.
