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.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Deep dark brown, tan head. Roasty aroma, slight hop. Roasty light flavorwith some bitterness from the roasted barley, some from hops. Slight tartness. Thought the malt character was slightly watery. Not bad overall.

Crockett (1008) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2005
Pours opaque black except for some red hues at the bottom. Thick tan head slowly disipated. Chocolate, oatmeal, cereal aroma. Meaty, pretty thick stuff. Minerals and herbal licorice notes. Coffee and very even roasted cookie malts. Finish is long and toasty.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 Roasted malts, burnt cereal, chocolate, grapes and licorice in the nose. Opaque darkest brown with small-bubbled, dense tan head that recedes to cover. Initial fairly sweet chocolatey flavour is joined by a strong roasted malt flavour and bitterness with notes of anis in the long-lasting aftertaste. Medium-full body has nice effervescence and is engaging in the mouth. What a pleasant holiday surprise! Bottle. *

Nice creamy head from the pour. Head didnít last long. Nice aroma of the barley and outs. Body was dark and usually I donít care to much for really dark beers but this one went down good with little aftertaste.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Didnít really seem like a "sweet" stout, but very good never-the-less. Pours a pitch black body, with a small dark tan head. Decent roasted coffee, malty slight chocolate scents. Good thick, malty mouthfeel. Full of roasted coffee malts. Slight bitter,vanilla aftertaste. Good stout.

bottle. Poured a dark dark brown color with a medium off-white head. Sweet malty nose with a little scent of bitternesss. The first sip is very dry but turns sweet just before the finish and finishes smooth. Full bodied. I was very impressed byu this stout.

LiamPatrick16 (124) - Montgomery, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2004
dark black body, with a chocolate colored head that lightened up after a minute or two. Very malty smooth tasting for a thick bodied beer. some bitter flavors in there but the worked nicely.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2004
This poured out with an opaque black body and a dark tan smallish head. The head quickly died leaving little lace in its wake. Smells of roasted malt and dark chocolate fill the nose. Taste is similar with a bitter dark chocolate flavor backed by a slight grainy taste and some caramel. The finish is bitter with a roasted hoppy flavor that is dry. The body is medium to full with a slick mouthfeel. This went down fairly easy with a very filling quality about it that would discourage me from having another in the same session but I would definitely pick this one up again. Its a good oatmeal stout but not one of my favorites.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 Poured black as midnight with a soft tannish head. Dark roasted, coffee, and delicious chocolate aroma. Rich chocolate, creamy mocha coffee, and slightly bitter at the finish. Medium-bodied and somewhat thin. Overall, this is a tasty stout that would be delicious with quality chocolates.
