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.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Dark brown, some ruby highlights, some tan head. Nose was creamy oats, sweet, and some roasty notes. Flavor was same, very creamy and medium -thick bodied. Good roastiness, finished with a light crispy sweetness, rather clean feeling. Silky. Solid.

Courtesy of Secret Santa. <P> Aroma is mild chocolate, but it has some depth. Deep black. Pours nice, but the head fades too soon. Flavor is pretty big. Some tobacco in the fore followed by bitter baker’s chocolate and medium roastiness throughout. Never gets around to being sweet really. Definitely more in the Foreign Stout side of a Sweet.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2005
On tap at Firkin’s, Libertyville, IL. Blacked hued stout having a long lasting tan head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Slight sweet roasted malt aroma. Medium bodied with starts with a smooth light sweet malt and chocolate flavor. Finishes dry with light lingering bitterness. Rather thin textured but flavorful. This is a nice oatmeal stout.

Bottle. Pours black with a real nice creamy lt. brown head. Very consistent lacing on the glass. My nose is a bit stopped up, so aroma may be a little off. At first this smelled like a much lighter beer: citrus and malt primarily. After warming, the aroma is just sweet, like baking chocolate. Flavor along the lines of soy creamer, decaf coffee, hazelnut, brown sugar instant oatmeal. Finishes with dry oats, cheap chocolate, puff of hops. Like just about every oatmeal based beer I’ve tried, this one has a super smooth feel. There is something about that oatmeal that makes a wonderful consistency, though there is perhaps a bit more carbonation in there than I care for in a thick beer. Hmm...warms the chest a bit. Not too bad. I’m very partial to the oatmeal stouts and porters, however. Worth trying, but if you get NC beer, Highland’s Oatmeal Porter does this a bit better.

Pours a dark brown, with a thick brown head. Aroma is malty with coffee and chocolate, and flavor was nice. It finished very chocolatey, but not too bad. I enjoyed this.

WOODYOBEER (1) - SCHWENKSVILLE, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2005 does not count
There is a definite chocolate- and milk- feel & taste about this beer. Small, light-brown frothy head with excellent lacing (although it was a short-lived head). The body has a brown, murky appearance to it. Starts & ends with a moderately sweet flavor. Has an oily texture on the tongue, which leads to a metallic finish.

Nice deep dark body with a tan head. Aromas of coffee/chocolate/cheerios. Light chocolate flavors with coffee and oats.

Pinnhead (93) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2005
A truly spectacular Oatmeal Stout. Very mid-range in terms of not being overly dark. Would suggest it’s a good taster for someone new to the ’dark’ side of beers and the world of stouts.

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2005
The beer pours to a dark black body with a creamy khaki head. Spotty lacing. The aroma is a lightly tart oatmeal and molasses. Chocolate. The palate is lacking for an oatmeal. Medium bodied with a light tartness. Decent.
