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.

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.

This was good, but the guy at the World Market claimed it was better than the Sammy Smiths. I didn’t quite agree. It did look good, poured a nice black with fair head and smelled as I expected, with chocolate-coffee-oatmeal hints, but it was a little bitter and flatter than I hoped for. Overall, it is a very good stout, but definitely not better than Samual Smiths Oatmeal.

Pours a rich robust deep dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is subtle, sweet and roasty. Smooth, mild and chocolatey body has some molasses and a nice hop balance. A good oatmeal stout.

12oz Bottle. Pours very black with a small dark tan head. Aroma roasty chocolate milk and coffee mix, also an earthy oatmeal hint. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate chips, and a sweet start then a bitter very full finish. Mouth feel is creamy, heavy, very full, and swallow heavy also. Very Good.

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.

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.
