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.

The stout style inherently has a "head start" - Iíve never seen a stout that doesnít pour that thick, long lasting head. No exception here, and the aroma is rather vivid with elements of chocalate oatmeal-raisin cereal. It does seem rather thin for a stout, almost as if drinking a hyped-up San Miguel dark or similar. As in its description, it is rather sweet; however, itís not cloyingly so, and the peaty elements still impart a strong presence. The finish is average for an oatmeal stout, perhaps more like bittersweet chocalate caramel, the raisin flavor having dissipated.

Overall this was a great beer. Pours dark, black with full aroma of toasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Mouthfeel was a little thiner than I am used to with an oatmeal stout. Nevertheless, I would put this one up against sam smith oatmeal stout anyday. It would lose, but itís an interesting contest.

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 didnít 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 nice black with a decent sized tan head. Aroma has hints of chocolate and is a bit roasty. taste has a nice chocolate flavor and the oats add a nice smoothness to it. Starts sweet and finishes bitter.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2004
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.
