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 black with a huge three finger fluffy dark brown head. aroma is caramel and chocolate malt and oats with caramel, chocolate, and a little coffee characteristics. has a medium to full body with descent lacing that follows the liquid and just right on the carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with the coffee coming out a bit more. it is sticky, sweet, and a little creamy. it is a little thin here and there for a stout but not bad. also as it warms some of the hops come out to play aroma and flavor wise. and there is a touch of smoke in the aftertaste.

Pours dark with medium, creamy head. Has a deep, smooth taste that goes right down. An exceptional stout in bottle and on tap.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 22, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a deep dark brown color. Not much light came through. Head was thick and light brown with decent retention and lacing. Aroma was of milk chocolate and light roasted malt. Slightly sweet on the tongue with a smooth, full bodied mouth feel. Tasted of chocolate up front followed by a hint of coffee and burnt stick. Pretty good.

I have grown to find other stouts, but this is the one that I grew up on. On tap at Father’s Office in Santa Monica circa 1995. Boontalicious!

22 oz bottle, pours black with a tan head. sweet chocolate aroma, a bit of roasted barley in excellent balance with oat and other starchy grains. foremost it’s sweet with coffee, toast, roast, and little alcohol. body is full and creamy - this is an excellent beer, would line up well with kalamazoo stout.

Sweet and easy drinking. This has a beautiful dark brownish-black pour... a huge chocolate mousse head leaves chunky lace. The nose has wheat, oats, roasted grains and mocha/milk chocolate notes. Sweet grain and chocolates to the tongue... light on the palate, but decently bodied... a creamy mouthfeel with great carbonation levels to add the perfect amount of crispness. The finish is indeed bittersweet, without bittering too much as to contrast the rest of the pull. Nice integration here, from beginning to end. This is a linear pull that leads from the front- to back-palates very well. Great example of the style!

This was the first stout I ever really got into way back when. Pours dark with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty, flavors are definitely describable as bittersweet and roasty. Pretty good, not what it used to be for me, but enjoyable nonetheless.

22 oz bottle. A year old? Dark brown with a boistrous sepia head. No lace. Musty grapes, coffee and crayons. Tangy chocolate with tongue-biting carb. Smooths into orange oatmeal cookies. Crisp and very drinkable. I really like this CA take on a sweet stout.
