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.

Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this bottle with us at the Nashville Tasting! Poured a black color with a tan head that left light lacing. The aroma was somewhat woody with some smoked malts. The flavor found an even mix of hops and malts with a hint of sweet fruits. Light and slightly watery for a stout. Sweet aftertaste.

22 oz. bottle. Pours an opaque black with a thick, rich brown head that lasted through the entire glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee was pleasant but a bit light for such a rich looking beer. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee and a touch of sweetness, was also a bit light I thought for a dark beer. Somewhat light bodied. If I had to use a word to describe this beer, it would be mellow.

12oz. Bottle: Sweet aroma of chocolate and roasted malts, and cream. Poured dark black with a big, rocky, but thin brown head that somewhat lasted. Good lacing is thin like the head. Opaque, even against a bright light. Flavor starts lightly sweet but finishes lightly bitter. Tastes of milk chocolate, roasted malts, cream, and oats. Finish is dry and long. Finish tastes of oats. Light to medium body. Thin. Soft carbonation. Overall I really liked the flavor of this beer, though it would benefit from more body.

Pours a black color with a darker brown color head. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of some hops. Flavor starts off with molasses and continues to the roasted malts and coffee and finishes with a slightly bitter and chocolate flavor. A very good stout.

Bottled. Good aroma of chocolate and licorice. Very dark body with a light brown head. Creamy mouth feel with a good deal of sweet malty flavor balanced with the right amount bitter hoppiness.

This was surprisingly very good. Don’t know what I was expecting but this tasted very similar to sam smith which i think is a great barometer. It poured well jet black with a dark carmel head. Taste of bitter chocolate and charcol, thats a good thing. Overall a good oatmeal stout

(bottle) Deep black with rapidly fading tan head. Roast malt aroma. Sweetish roast malt flavor. Good but not outstanding.

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.
