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.

This looks like liquid chocolate with a frothy mocha colored head. Smells of chocolate and raspberry. The flavor is a bit thin and yeasty, but it has a nice espresso flavor to it. Silky smooth mouthfeel. This is well-rounded, but I’ve had better stouts.

Bottles. Appearance is dark mocha brown with dark tan head. Moderate lacing evidient. Deelish Count Chocula & hops aroma. Flavor is sweet cooking chocolate, oats, malted milk balls and little twinges of roast coffee. Flavors become more bold as they warm. Aftertaste is wonderfully sharp bitter powdered chocolate. I would happily drink this sweet stout again!

Hopicide (11) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Pitch black hue with some ruby highlights. Nice sweet, roasty aroma follows through to the finish. Strong American hop character for an Oatmeal Stout. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, but finishes slightly dry and astringent. A truly American example of a classic English ale.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Pours nearly opaque black, with a nice brown creamy head. Aroma is roasty and hoppy, with maybe a tiny bit of yeast. Taste is nice and very roasty with a slightly bitter finish. Much more "oat" flavor than I have tasted in others. A very good example of an oatmeal stout.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2007
Pitchblack with a creamy, light brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee and a hint of plum. The flavour is very smooth and nice, just like an oatmeal stout should be. It has loads of coffee, hints of plum, light sweetness and a nice bitterness. The body and mouthfeel is quite full - and the balance is great! Thank you so much Tom/After4ever for this very nice stout! 1935

Nice chocolatey aroma with raspberry and coffee notes. Very dark with a bit of a tan head. Rich palate of coffee, roasted malt and hops. Decent.

Anderson Valleys signature brew. A very nice taste. The pour is smooth and the taste is even better. The Oat flavor is tremendous and a signature of craftmenship.

Probably the finest beer brewed in America today. Other posters here have described it. You know it’s rich and malty and full-bodied. If you’re on the West Coast, give it a try.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Poured from bottle. Very dark, very little head. I gotta be honest. When I first stuck my nose in this, I smelled a baked pretzel smell! It smelled great! Tasted sweet, chocolately, creamy, coffee, and definitely a toasted taste. A few reviewers have said its watered down. Probably why I like it. I thought it was pretty good, well blended, not too bitter at all...Which I prefer...Very good! My first oatmeal stout...YUM!

YUM YUM Poured a very very dark brown color with small head and great lacing. Aroma was of chocolate and coffee. Flavors were much the same. Very very nice balance with the hops. Solid beer for sure.
