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.

Pretty good oatmeal stout. If I remember correctly this is relatively cheap. Got it in Cali at some gourmet foods store that had beers from around the world. Why I picked this one out of the other 10 or so is beyond me.

BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2005
This beer poured a darker color with a tan head. It had a pleasantly earthy aroma and a complex flavor of oats and chocolate that was well balanced with hops. It is a good brew.

Light aroma. Poured completely opaque. Tan head that faded half way through tht glass. The flavor is slightly sweet with a nice hppy finish. Tasted of espresso. Mouthfeel was smooth. Moderate carbonation. Outstanding.

sfontain (807) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Medium-thick, opaque black; brown, fading head; almost no lacing. Smells of chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is nice and mellow; not overhopped like so many stouts; sweet, lightly chocolatey and roasty; vanilla. Medium-thick. A very drinkable stout; doesn’t particularly stand out in any department, but it’s solid in all aspects.

Finally getting around to trying this one. Pours perfectly black, no light making its way through. A thin head that is a light orange and brown color tops the black body. The aroma is massive with vanilla, apples and some dark bread. The taste is slightly sweet with some bread, rye and vanilla. There is also an earthy note of flowers. There is not as much sweetness as I would have suspected. Nicely done.

2004 bottle. Pours a thick, brown and auburn body, lots of black coloring in there with a large, well-retained, oatmeal colored head. Plenty of sediment on the bottom. Good oaty, creamy, buttery, roasty aroma. Clean yeast and light hops freshness to cut the malt sweetness. Flavor is clean and roasty, with more oat grittiness and light fruitiness. Honey cream and light alpha-hops bitterness. The body really shines the brightest, I think. Smooth, low carbonation, almost a chalky texture from the low filtration and unpasteurised nature of the beer. Oats give a fabulous mouthfeel as always. Not too much of anything, well-balanced and well-made as always from these guys.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Dark dark brown, tan fizzy head that turns into a creamy ring. Initial aroma is roasted bready chocolate. Coffee hints as well. Flavor is well developed and rich, though the mouthfeel is slightly watery. Flavor has creamy chocolate, vanilla, grape, with a coffee finish. Pretty good stuff, just wish there was more oomph in it.

faint, yet slightly malt aroma with a hint of oatmeal to it. Appearance is dark, and stout like which is good. Flavor is pretty smooth. It’s pretty general in flavor, nothing much sticks out. It’s not a bad beer, I’d probably drink this again if I came across it.
