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 is a beautiful oatmeal stout in every way. I am a fan of the style and a fan of this beer! Thanks froggyfrog for sharing this one. Appearance: This beer looked black to me with a light chocolate brown head. Smell: Dark roasty malts, espresso and a hint of chocolate. Taste: This is what beer is all about. When it enters your mouth and time seems to go in slow motion, like the caramel topping on a commercial takes forever to drip down around the ice-cream, the slow-motion effect happens when a beer is both rich in body and flavor. The burnt caramel, espresso, dark malt, oat flavor drizzled over my tongue in slow motion. This is the sensation that heaven will be like =) This beer is so well balanced with just the perfect hoppy finish I don’t have words to describe. Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is velvety silky smooth. The texture is what the chocolate looks like when you go on the ride through Hershey’s Chocolate World. Drinkability: Fat Dog step aside. I’m placing my order for Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Very overall pleased with this one. The aroma wasn’t as pleasant as the taste-- oatmeal and a nutty chocolate. This ran through the taste as it poured very dark with a tan head, enjoyed the deep chocolate and oatmeal hint. Reads exactly how it tastes.

Bottle. Pours a deep black body with a soapy tan head. The aroma is oat-like with pleasant chocolate notes and nuts. Dry roasted chocolate and nutty smoothness. Finishing with malt bitterness. Tasty yet straightforward.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Pours black w/ a medium sized, semi creamy froth. Head retention is decent w/ spattered residual lacing. Aroma is weak w/ malted cocoa, roasted coffee and nuts. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers. Flavors are thick black coffee, cocoa, w/ just a hint of oatmeal. Very well balanced. Squeaky clean, soft and creamy on the palate. Overall: Robust w/ it’s big roast component yet smooth. Good stuff. Highly recommended.

first thing i noticed when opening this bottle was that it smelled like hops. a pleasant surprise to say the least. i was a little disappointed that it poured a bit thin with a minimal head. on first taste, your tastebuds are drawn in by hops and soothed by a smooth dark chocolate and malt aftertaste that lingers

Bottle: Black with light brown persistent head. It also has a nice layer of lacing all over. Rich malt aromas of chocolate & toffee. This brew tastes like a great candy bar. It has a great finish - thin as expected with oatmeal stouts, a little tang/bitterness and smooth. Yummy.

Run of the mill stout. Pours black with slight head. Typical roasted coffee type taste. Not bad but nothing special.

Tap. Ultra dark brown with diminishing tan/brn head, fair lace. Aroma is rich, creamy, dark roast malt & grain w moderate hops. Nice, fresh, clean, silky rich flavor as described above. I had this after a pils which made it seem fuller bodied at first but as I drank it it developed a bit of a thinness on the palate. Very nice flavor however. A pleasant oatmeal stout to drink, balanced very nicely with the hop bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2010 Re-rate, after several bottles, 1/10: The roast/ash, licorice notes are prevelant in this one over all the typical oatmeal stout characteristics. I like a little more oatmeal bite and dryness in the flavor and mouthfeel, but this is still pretty solid, definitely one of the best I can regularly go into the store and grab: St. Ambroise and Goose Island probably the other two that compete for my top oatmeal stout. Original Rating: Poured a dark brown to black color with a nice steady tan head, which subsided by left a nice covering over the top of the beer for the duration. The aroma was of cofee and chocolate. The flavors were chocolate, light coffee, caramel and even toffee (wow, second beer today with a toffee take, and I don’t normally pick up on it). Mouthfeel was nice and smooth with some stickiness, but a very drinkable stout. Finishes somewhat sweet with only mildly balanced bitterness. The hop touch to the aftertaste was only noticeable until the beer warmed. Very nice beer.
