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.

Loved it. Nice balance of heary body, beautiful pour. Excellent mouth feel and just enough sweetness to handle the finish.

Opaque ebony coloration with a large brown head that thickly laces the glass as it recedes. Roast coffee aroma and flavorwith a tiny bit of bitterness added.

Not an impressive oatmeal stout. It has good color but the sweet , slight coffee taste fails to bring the deep full bodied flavor that was hoped for.

Bottle. Cream, salt cracker, and roast coffee aroma. Looks good with a blackish brown body and small tan head. It’s tasty: salty, roast cofee, sourdough bread. Creamy body that could be a little fuller and creamier, but isn’t bad. Would make a decent sessie, not all that complicated, but could easily go through a few of these. Decent salty, slightly bitter roast finish.

Excellent oatmeal stout, with lots of big aromas and flavors, on a very creamy body. Pours to a beautiful, deep ebony color, with a thick and creamy tan head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is excellent, with lots of good dark chocolate, coffee, and roasty aromas, paired with some piney hop aroma. Palate if firm, with lots of good, dark chocolate, coffee, and roasty flavors. Mouth feel is silky and creamy. This beer finishes with more good dark chocolate and roast, then ends dry and bitter, with flavors of pine tar that lingers. Excellent beer to match with shell fish, such as oysters on the half shell, or hearty fare, and rich and sweet chocolate deserts.

Sweet at first with a chocolate foundation. Then, transitions into a dry, bitter, roasted barley flavor. Good bit of roasted grain bitternessl .Light hopping keeps the sweetness balanced very well. Lots of barley and oat flavor without being grainy. Actually a rather wet mouthfeel, but never thin. Bittersweet is the perfect way to describe it, like bakers chocolate.

Pour is a very dark black with a small white head. Aroma is coffee malts and chocolate. Flavor is heavy and strong with notes of chocolate and caramel. Very tasty and strong brew. This brewer can do no wrong!

A midnight-black appearance with a nice, thick off-white/grey head. Aroma was bittersweet chocolate of course, but I thought it lacked compared to the truly great oatmeal stouts. It just didn’t have that incredible aroma Young’s has or Samuel Smith’s. I thought the flavor was strong on the bitter chocolate side, which was good but there wasn’t much in the oatmeal side. I thought it wasn’t very complex and let it warm a bit with hoping more flavor would shine thru. Much to my displeasure, it didn’t. Minimal hop finish. I would have to rate this as a nice stout, but nothing extraordinary.

aroma is a somewhat subdued. a bit malty. dark pour with nice dark tan head. dissipated quickly. tastes chocolatey with caramel and bittersweet highlights. fills your mouth like a good piece of chocolate melting on you tongue. definitely a huge value vs. price beer.
