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.

This one pours jet black with a small brown head. A small tan layer stays on top and helps lacings develop on the glass. It has a rich aroma of chocolate malts with a hint of hops. Full bodied and very rich, the flavor is smooth and full of chocolate and coffee notes. The finish is slightly sweet with a touch of hop flavor. An excellent oatmeal stout, smooth, robust, and flavorful.

Pours a motor oil black. Very little head. Roasted bitter chocolate flavor is doing battle with sweet creamy oatmeal texture. The aftertaste leaves a sour better flavor that is not pleasant - this the sub par rating.

Very good oatmeal stout! Sweet and creamy flavor much different than what some people expect when they hear "stout". I tried it from the bottle, but still was impressed!

WabashMan (1007) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2003
Nice color and head (by the way, don't you love it when a stout has that caramel colored head?). Aroma is good, though not up to the level of the appearance. The flavor is very nice, deep, and delicious. A very nice sweet stout, which would rate higher if it weren't for the overwhelming number of great stouts. But, this one does pretty well, even among the company it keeps.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2003
Pours wonderfully dark, with a very nice creamy head. Very nutty, and a nice cream like palate, almost milky. The oats really come out in the finish. Probably my favorite by this brewer, thus far.

Nice dark color. Dark brown head. Good taste and texture. Nice oatmeal aftertaste. Great beer.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2003
This one poured a clean black color with very little attempt at forming a head, leaving me once again to question how in the heck they got that picture over there in the upper left to look like that??? Aroma of coffee, smokeyness, and sweet oatmeal. The taste is very minimally carbonated and leads to much the same flavors, no surprises here. Coffee, perhaps chocolate and a sweet oatmeal taste, thanks to that malty goodness step out and greeted me to the candy store (well, thats what it felt like). Pleasantly smooth mouthfeel, but a bit thin on the oatmeal, and chocolateness. Ive never described it this was before but its almost as if the rollercoaster ride wasnt long enough to enjoy it. There was about a second each time this was in my mouth and it was good...and then poof...it was gone, only a dry chocolatey aftertaste was left. Ahhh, the mysteries of life.

Had on Tap: This is a great stout. Very rich and creamy. Dark black with a nice deep tan head and leaves nice lacing. Black licorice/anise in the taste with some mellow roasted malts, and some slight chocolate character. Aroma is more malty with subtle hop balance. One of my new favorite stouts.
