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.

Dark with dissipating tan head. Bitter coffee aroma. Nice creamy carbonation, but lacks the viscosity/oiliness that I love in an OS. Good fresh roasty flavors, though. A little disappointing, I guess.

NIce very dark brown short lived head. Almost black in color. Nice aromas of coffee, earthiness, and chocolate. The carbonation in this beer is done well. Nice smooth, almost silky mouthfeel. Nice flavors as well. Flavors of coffee, soil like earthiness, oatmeal of course, and the perfect touch of hoppiness. I really like this oatmeal stout.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours black with thin head. Flavor is roasted coffee with some chocolate. Finishes slightly bitter. Mouthfeel was almost like soda-pop, fizzy. Not a bad thing, just something I usually don’t notice in beers.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - OCT 19, 2004
I’ve seen the Anderson Valley Beers sitting around for a long time, and finally am starting to try them. Pours with the look of an Imperial Stout. Aroma is sweet, oatmeal, espresso, blackberries. Nice oatmeal stout, oatmeal is very present, slightly dry, somewhat thin, some espresso, and black coffee finish the beer, this would be good for a session.

Couldn’t detect much aroma. Certainly nothing offensive here. Deep, dark inviting color. Intial taste of chocolate, roasted nuts, perhaps a little coffee. Wonderful lingering aftertaste of roasted malts and cocoa.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Dark brown. Cocoa nose, with a touch of menthol. Creamy milky mouthfeel. Not very roasty. Medium bitter. Long finish. Nice hops presence, considering the style.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Dark coffee brown with a head that dissappears to quickly to observe. Smell is fresh but hard to pick up. Roasted malts with a chocolate/caffeine styled flavor. Plain oatmeal and raisins in the background. Didn’t get the creamy feeling but it was a decent oatmeal stout.

ALmost black in color. Bringa a burnt malty flavor with chocolate and cocoa. Flavor is pleasantly malty with fruity touches and a milky feeling.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Nearly black in color, but it was a super dark brown. There were the smallest hints of ruby around the edges. About an inch of tan head rested atop the body. Milk chocolate, roasty coffee, little bits of oatmeal, and maybe some raisins. A lovely flavor to this one. Roasted coffee, molasses, chocolate covered oats. Smooth mouthfeel. Well done all around.

Opaque, dark brown. Finger of light brown foam. Sweet aroma of milk chocolate & nutty, roasted coffee. Soft, velvety feel. Rich flavour of sweet milk chocolate, roasted coffee, nuts & chicory. Good hoppiness.
