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.

kramer (5303) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Bück Dich. Black pour with some mahogany edges and a small light brown head. Chocolate and black patant malts lead off with notes of molassas, oats, and coffee in the aroma. Flavor is equally balanced between the burnt malt and aggressive hoppiness. Finish is chocolate and espresso laced with caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy textured. Very fine light to moderate carbonation. A nice solid Sweet Stout, worth seeking out for sure.

Dammit! Lost my rating again. 12oz bottle, no date. Pours a dark, dark brown with a mod tan head, quickly dissipating. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, oats, brown sugar, and vanilla. Taste follows the aroma with a lingering soft bitterness. Full bodied. Very good beer.

Pours a solid black / dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is mild, swwet with a touch of malts. Taste is much deeper. Great blend of coffee, chocolate, bittersweet, malts, and roastiness are present here. Nicely balanced from start to finish.

Fine medium ecru head. Nearly opaque espresso colour. Fabulous toasted oats scent. Nice thick mouthfeel. Bitter dark taste, quite lovely.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Pure black body, with a tan head. Good oat aroma, that for the first time is not overpowered by the coffee bitterness. Nice thick body, good oats again (very present), bitterness from roasted hops also adds a nice touch. Sweet, clean ending.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Dark black color with a medium brown head that mostly dissipates. Sweet roasted malt and bitter aroma. Lots of roasted malt, medium coffee, and light bittering.

Ratman197 (10640) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bomber poured a nearly opaque black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of coffee, hint of bakers cocoa and a bit of licorice. Palate was medium bodied and crisp [for a stout]. Flavors of coffee, bakers cocoa and roasted malt with a crisp lingering bittersweet finish.

Folkstar (6) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 21, 2006 does not count
Not bad, but a little dissapointing. The taste is nice and tart, but the aftertase lacks a little something I can’t put my tongue one. Don’t pass up this beer without trying it, but, I’d rather drink an Ale and eat a bowl of oatmeal instead.

piscator34 (2036) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Black in colour with slightly lower than average carbonation. Very nice milk chocolate aroma, along with secondary notes of coffee. More of the chocolate and coffee thing in the mouth, along with some nice dark crystal malt notes and a touch of oatmeal sweetnes... although everything was a bit more muted than anticipated. Only medium bodied, which again, was a bit of a surprise. A solid beer, but not in the same class as some other stouts that I’ve tried.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2006
Black with a brown head, nice roasty aroma. Good roasty malty flavour with a salty and slightly dry finish.
