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.

Black with a big tan head. Nose is chocolate and coffee. Flavor is bittersweet with a healthy dose of oatmeal. Creamy smooth finish.

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.
