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.

Finally getting around to trying this one. Pours perfectly black, no light making its way through. A thin head that is a light orange and brown color tops the black body. The aroma is massive with vanilla, apples and some dark bread. The taste is slightly sweet with some bread, rye and vanilla. There is also an earthy note of flowers. There is not as much sweetness as I would have suspected. Nicely done.

2004 bottle. Pours a thick, brown and auburn body, lots of black coloring in there with a large, well-retained, oatmeal colored head. Plenty of sediment on the bottom. Good oaty, creamy, buttery, roasty aroma. Clean yeast and light hops freshness to cut the malt sweetness. Flavor is clean and roasty, with more oat grittiness and light fruitiness. Honey cream and light alpha-hops bitterness. The body really shines the brightest, I think. Smooth, low carbonation, almost a chalky texture from the low filtration and unpasteurised nature of the beer. Oats give a fabulous mouthfeel as always. Not too much of anything, well-balanced and well-made as always from these guys.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Dark dark brown, tan fizzy head that turns into a creamy ring. Initial aroma is roasted bready chocolate. Coffee hints as well. Flavor is well developed and rich, though the mouthfeel is slightly watery. Flavor has creamy chocolate, vanilla, grape, with a coffee finish. Pretty good stuff, just wish there was more oomph in it.

faint, yet slightly malt aroma with a hint of oatmeal to it. Appearance is dark, and stout like which is good. Flavor is pretty smooth. Its pretty general in flavor, nothing much sticks out. Its not a bad beer, Id probably drink this again if I came across it.

9er (82) - Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 Sweet rum-like smell, dark and on the light and chocolate side... Is creamy and sweeet on the initial buds but finishes with a yummy robust character. Has a smooth finish and not too carbonated like a guinness. The head fades quickly and not too gracefully breaks up and has islands of bubbles. Is a good beer but not powerful like a guinness.

Bottle. Slightly smokey, coffee, vinous, grape nose. Opaque body with a ring of bubbles. Taste-light bitter, coffee with cream, roasted malts, smoke. This is oneof the best sweet stouts that I have evr had.

12oz - Not a lot to smell here. What is there is a bit of oatmeal and malt with a touch of chocolate. Black, initially had a nice brown head that quickly faded. Slight lacing. Flavor is carmel, malt, oatmeal. chocolate. Palate does linger as it should. Overall a good drinking stout but nothing to write home about.
