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.

Ok, I now know that I really like oatmeal stouts. This beer did not have any real distinctive qualities, but it was just damn good.

Pours a dark leathery brown, settles opaque black, medium cocoa brown head fluffs up from a vigorous pour and subsides some to a thin haze and a fluffy sponged collar on top, lace in inkblots. Smell is quite mild and subdued of light chocolatey sweetness with a bit of roastyness and oat tangy sweetening. Taste is very mild with a persistant chocolatey sweetness that sets the overall tone with small notes of oats and roasted malts and faint touches of coffee. Finishes with a bit of drying roastyness and cocoa and a clean milding crispness. Feel is a solid medium body with no real characteristics of sweetness lingering or standing out any where, overall just a smooth somewhat creamy, chocolatey pensive quality. The chocolate tones are very nice; its a fine drinker, quite smooth and easy with a nice chocolateyness. Right up there with Black Widow.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2003
Nice dark brown color,small head that faded quickly but left a very small lace behind.The aroma was sweet and roasty,oats and chocolate and maybe a little coffeeish taste as well.The finish is semi sweet dark chocolate and mild hops.Not a bad brew at allFairly decent and drinkable but in many ways a little light in the feel,but still worth trying.

I like this one, probably my favorite stout besides Old Rasputin. Nice creamy body, with reserved use of roasted barley. Chocolatey flavor, balanced by gentle hops flavor and bitterness. Great sweet stout.

(650ml bottle) Dark brown body and a almonde head. Watered-down St. Ambroise Oatmeal nose. Smokey and deep malt taste. Good! Thanks Luc.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 A roasty discharge accompanies the chocolate cookies...Burnt notes furnish the palate appropriately as a fruitiness establishes itself for the long run...It is too carbonated and too lean for mu likings in stout, making the palate not that comfortable...Roastiness comes to ashes, as fruitiness finishes the sip...Fondness is inevitable for a well-made stout, but in this case I know I can find a much more satisfying example of the same style...

Dark brown black colour with average head. Bit of hops to it. Not a bad stout.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark brown, with a small head. Aroma of malts and oats, with a touch of roastiness. Flavors are very similar to the aroma, malty and slightly sweet oats with a touch of roasted barley.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Smokey, malty oatmeal stout with some oat flavor evident. Nice stout appearance and an overall quality if not complex flavor. Some very mild bitterness from the hops and the body is slightly weaker than anticipated. Nice but not the best.
