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.

Thaks to elnadeau for sharing. Pours a nice black with a tan head that quickly vanishes. The nose is a bit roasty, w/ some oatmeal in it. The flavors are roasty, toasty with a bitter finish. I got some notes of chocolate & caramel. This was pretty well done.

Pours black with tan head of nice course stout bubbles. Great lacing. Aroma is coffee, caramel, chocolate. Mouthfeel nice with course carbonation, light body for a stout. Not very sweet, but complex and a very nice drink; coffee, chocolate, some caramel and toastiness. Dry, bitter finish with fair duration. I enjoyed drinking these bottles.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a dark black with slight traces of red near the edges and a very quickly disappearing tan head. Rich malty nose with a slight roasted espresso hint. Has a roasted malt taste at the beginning that gives way to a slightly burnt and smoky bitter finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. MarkR comes through with another beauty.

frankR (145) - Davis, California, USA - APR 26, 2004
On Tap: Opaque black. Tan head, nose of malt and some burnt toast. Flavor profile starts very malty and turns slightly burnt toast bitter during the after taste, which I think is rather unusual for the style, lots of roast. Very creamy, especially on tap.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2004
Big, thick, cocoa brown head, and a color as black as the night. Aromas of chocolate, and espresso. Texture and mouthfeel are ideal for this style, one of my favorites: luscious, rich, and wonderfully roasty! Dark and bitter finish, but alive with hoppiness. Excellent balance, smooth and tasty, absolutely delicious. Beautiful and rewarding finish that goes on and on... This one is my #3 American oatmeal stout, behind Rogue and Bell's. Good job, AV!

This creamy aromatic full bodied stout is delicious. Recommend this on a cold wintery day. Suitable for substituting for some warm oatmeal. Great warm finish and oatmeal following. Tops.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2004
Pours super dark, with a medium tan head. Aromas of roasty malt, coffee, and slight prunes. Finishes smooth, slightly sweet, with a creamy, roasty maltiness, and some port and cognac at the finish. Somewhat light in mouthfeel. A great oatmeal stout.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 14, 2004
Appearance is well... stout with a decent tan head, pleasant sweet coffee/cocoa aroma. Seems on the sweet side but has a satisfying, well rounded balance and mouthfeel. One of the better stouts that I've enjoyed lately, will definitely pick up some more of this stuff.

Bottle - big, sweet chocolate aroma. Nice, standard stout appearance. Black body and a darkish head that quickly dissipated. Nice oatey (is that a word?) flavor and plenty of the chocolate hinted at by the aroma - particularly after it warmed some. Very nice!
