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.

On tap: the beer came off the tap opaque with two fingers of head that settled to a very thin layer on the top. Thinner than more dark beers. aroma was slighted roasted with a couple of bitter elements. Flavor was rather "meh" good but not complex enough. It didnít have the roasted dryness that comes in some stouts (yes even sweet stouts) and it didnít have the bittersweet chocholate, coffee taste that I so enjoy from a dark beer. I guess this beer was a little flabby, it lacked real character, but was drinkable and not offensive. It was weak on stout taste, but had some roasted and matly elements, on top of a clean bitterness. decent palte but it could have been smoother and "creamier". Finished okay with the bitterness becoming a little more apparent.

Over carbonated producing a HUGE head unlike other stouts. One dimension of flavor with a heavy emphasis on the hops; bitter more than sweet. Didnít have the thick creamy mouthfeel that most Oat or Sweet Stouts normally present. Wonít repeat.

thick tan head nice lacing. Body is velvety and creamy with hints of oats, fudge, and espresso. very bland on the finish, i guess that would make it sessionable

Bottle. Pours a wonderful black with a thick beige head. A creamy rich body; with coffee, roasted malt, and an oats taste. Some light hops present also. I really like this brew, itís smooth and easygoing, but has a lot to offer.

The color was dark chocolate/black. The head was thick, creamy, and light beige. The aroma was coffe malt, roast, and some hops. The flavor was smoked, roasty, and coffee malt. The palate was nicely carbonated and the finish, roasty and somewhat hoppy.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

This was an ok stout, a little to sweet for me. A lot of rasoted coffee flavors, some chocolate back there but not much.

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Fully black with a mildly lasting tan skin. Aroma first of chlorine, then rich milk chocolate. Raspberry jam on grahams. Vanilla with some plum presence underneath. Distant roast and chocolate chip cookies. Clean, sweet taste of bland coffee - cream, sugar - with a touch of tannin. Sharp and smoky, with some astringency of pine resin and soap. A soft touch of grape seed extract, and something stingingly clean like fabric softener. Creamy and tired texture. Meekly bitter finish. Definitively uninteresting; decent.

Bomber. Dark, dark, dark with a nice mocha head that has some good lacing. Aromas of toasted oats, fruits, smoke and chalk. Taste is smokey oats mixed with some roasted malts and cigar tobacco. Light flavors of dark fruits on the finish. Easy to drink.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2007
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Opaque jet black with a thin, fine, medium-tan head. Sweet, dark roasted malt aroma with pronounced fruitiness over a perceived oatmeal toastiness. Sweet and malty with "burnt" grain, toffee, fruit and raisin flavors. Body is surprisingly thin and light for the style which leaves a somewhat unsatisfying finish.
