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.

On the darker side. A good tan head stays in control, but isn't too small. Really tight bubbles. The aroma is surprisingly dominated by lemon zest hops under which lurks dark malt aromas. The flavor is dry, fairly light and while some roast is apparent up front, in the back a mild hop bitterenes lingers with a pale malt flavor.

From a first glance this is a nice one. It both smells and tastes really nice. I had to give it a low overall impression though because literally I got a severe case of the runs after I drank it. It may look and taste great but after an hour in the bathroom I will never ever drink this again.

duke33 (68) - Eldersburg, Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2004 Overall, pretty good. Moderately hopped with a nice light chocolate taste. I was shocked that the ABV was only 5.7% - it seems like a hit in the head!

Huge tan head. Deep BBQ sauce and oatmeal aroma. Roasted malty and crispy burnt flavor but slightly watery and lacking some bitterness.

Very dark brown, almost black, nice tan head. Aroma was malty with oats and some roastiness. Similar flavor, slightly sweet, touch of bitterness. Quite nice.

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.
