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.

Beer #13 at Spiesyís. Not dissimilar to the Smuttynose Robust Porter tasted just before. If anything the coffee aroma was even more powerful. Coffee flavour too. The coffee in this one was creamier than the espresso character of the Smuttynose. Soft, smooth and sweetish. Not at all bad.

SilkTork (5191) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2004
Bottle @ Spiesyís gaff. Coffee aroma. Blandish coffee tinged with vanilla. Creamy texture. Pleasant and flavoursome but lacking character other than the chocolate.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Pours a syrupy dark brown, settling into a dark black mass topped with a creamy head. Notes of maple syrup, bakers chocolate, and a touch of roasty malt in the nose with a touch of hop spice. Full bodied and sticky. Loads of malty sweetness offset by flavors of coffee and other roastiness. Long, warm finish. A nice example of the style. Easy to drink more than one of these in a sitting.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Beautiful thick head of off white on a black body. Roast coffee malt aroma that improves greatly as it warms. Nice balance of roasty bitterness and sweet malt. Lacks a little in body, but makes it up with an exceptionally smooth brew over the tongue. Very drinkable Stout.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Bottle. Really liked this one. Heaps of flavour. Malts are porridgey, cooky-ish, roasted, sweetish to start, finishes bitter and slightly off-dry, long finish, tasty stout. Re-rate:Didn't like it as much this time, not as much flavour as i remembered the first time round.

DanielBrown (3782) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2004
Bottle purchased from Beverages and More, San Diego, whilst on holiday. Brandy aroma, inky colouring and a small, brown head. Silky and clean on the tongue, like nougat. Becomes more grainy and stromg tasting down the throat, with a coffee bitterness. A balanced Stout.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2004
The stout style inherently has a "head start" - Iíve never seen a stout that doesnít pour that thick, long lasting head. No exception here, and the aroma is rather vivid with elements of chocalate oatmeal-raisin cereal. It does seem rather thin for a stout, almost as if drinking a hyped-up San Miguel dark or similar. As in its description, it is rather sweet; however, itís not cloyingly so, and the peaty elements still impart a strong presence. The finish is average for an oatmeal stout, perhaps more like bittersweet chocalate caramel, the raisin flavor having dissipated.

jde123 (764) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Overall this was a great beer. Pours dark, black with full aroma of toasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Mouthfeel was a little thiner than I am used to with an oatmeal stout. Nevertheless, I would put this one up against sam smith oatmeal stout anyday. It would lose, but itís an interesting contest.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 8, 2004
Nice coffee, toasted aroma; pours with a pillowy, fluffy head; rather mild flavored for an oatmeal stout; fairly sweet with a soft bitter finish and an assertive roasted flavour; generally, a bit thin in body and flavor, though, for the style; all in all, quite good.
