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.

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.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2004
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!

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2004
deep, dark black/brown color, brown, creamy head - very nice, roasted malt aroma with a definite coffee presence – like coffee ice cream, very light sweet mocha aromas as well, a bit of a smoky alcohol aroma; roasted malt flavor, bitter coffee, no real sweet touch like typical oatmeal stouts, maybe a little bit of hop flavor as well, good texture

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2004
Nice stout coloration, including a nice darker creamy head which ran off quickly. Aroms is a little bit hidden. Flavor is a nice rounded malt character, with a decent crispness at one end and the other a good grain feel to it. Not a bad stount, but lacking in the sweetness dept.

Nice stout just finished a case of this. It pours out dark with a tan head but it is not quite as thick as I like in a stout. I could not detect the taste of oatmeal but it has the stout flavor that I have become accustom to and consider good tasting. I would recommend this one to a friend.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 27, 2004
We used to buy this one at Wellspring Grocery in Chapel Hill in the early 1990's. This is the stout that inspired a trip to the brewery in search of the maker. Dark, full-bodied. Roasted barley nose with a grab-yer-tongue malt character. Great oatmeal balance of smoothness to what would otherwise be an aggressive stout to the casual drinker.

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Pours brownish black with a small brown head. Nose is hops, licorice, roasted malt and coffee. Taste is more roasted malt and and lighter chocolate notes. Somewhat sweet during the finish and around the edges. Good stout!

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Poured almost black with a reddish hue around the edges. Nice roasted aroma. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for the style. Dark roasted coffee beans, chocolate, hops, and licorice on the tongue. Nice aftertaste. Not the best in its style but it's very, very drinkable.

Dark black. Mild chocolate taste with a touch of hops. Nice bosdy but thinner than a Saint Ambroise Stout.
