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.

I really like this stout, and have been drinking it for several years. Pours dark brown with a rich tan head. malty sweetness but not syrupy feeling. A bit hoppier and drier in the finish with a slight hop bitterness not usually seen in sweet stouts.

blankboy (6402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black, with an average size light-brown head. Aroma of hops, milk chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Flavour follows the aroma but is a little tame, it needs more chocolate and/or coffee -- the hops are a nice touch though. Medium bodied and creamy. Very enjoyable, Iíve been impressed with all of the Anderson Valley beers Iíve had so far.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2006 From Bottle
Pours very dark, big white creamy head. Sweet aroma, Full Flavor, and full body. Very creamy and very easy to drink. Taste of chocolate and slight coffee taste. As it warmed it was a tad bitter but not overpowering. I canít believe I passed this up 4 times at the bottleshop before I bought it.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2005 The best oatmeal stout Iíve had yet. I was left wanting more. Full body, full flavor, with hints of chocolate. So dark that people thought I was drinking cola. Probably the best beer that Iíve had yet.

Inviting appearance ó dark body, thick tan head. Big malt aroma ó roast, chocolate, syrup. Flavor tips toward the sweet side ó†chocolate with notes of caramel and toast. Medium to heavy body, but certainly not syrupy. Very easy sipping. Slight bitter aftertaste to balance the sweet malts.

pineypower (2635) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Pours out a nice dark brown color with a large fading head. The aroma is sweet and roasty. Taste is very nice with a decent balance and a sweet and somewhat hoppy finish

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2005
Dry, musty, creosote stout aroma. Cool cap, cool label - very west-coast micro. A hearty but balanced flavor - moderate sweetness, hazelnut, roast, chocolate in a very drinkable blend. Lingering coffee bitterness with creamy cocoa. Moderately viscous mouthfeel. Quite good - certainly deserving of its high ranking. Picked this one up in Phoenix.

phiconners (149) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Pours dark, short lived head. Strong flavor, not as sweet as some others in this category, but very flavorful. A solid beer, but not as good as I would have hoped for the 9.99 I paid for a six pack.
