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.

Hmmm, slightly sweeter than some other quality oatmela stouts I've had - it's a little too sweet at times...but wait a minute...better, better, upon warming. Also fruit...also good roastiness, also nicely bitter (could be more...) - just the right palate and appearance, though, for a super quality oatie.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2003
Poured jet black with a large dark tan head which left nice lacing on the glass. Sweet coffee, cocoa taste and a full mouthfeel.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Rich and creamy head full of milk, oatmeal and vanilla. Big vanilla taste, with a somewhat thin mouth feel. Tastes like a cold mocha. Suprisingly light on the palate.

sloth (2443) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Brown unsubstantial head. Fruity nose, plums and some roastiness. Black as midnight, opaque. Full bodied brew. Creamy mouthfee.. Roasted flavor really comes through with some smooth coffee and chocolate notes.A pleasent oatmeal stout. Finish is medium dry and roasty with an appreciated hop bite, nice.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2003
A very good oatmeal! Black with a coarse, dark beige head. Roasted hop aroma with a rich, chocolate flavor. Some bitterness in the back of throat threw me off a bit, but a well made stout.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Bottle. Opaque black pour with lots of head that dissipates rapidly. Oatmeal/coffee flavor that was nice, somewhat tempered by an acidic finish that makes itself more known as the beer warms.

stoutosaurus (157) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - JUL 5, 2003
Pretty good. Very rich flavor just as can be expected. Not terribly oatmealy, but good nonetheless.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 3, 2003
Poured from the bottle as a thick, black-brown syrup giving rise to a modest light brown head. The aroma had me at the first sniff - rich, darkly roasted malts, carob and assertive hops. Flavor is bittersweet, bakers chocolate, stirred into coffee and strained through a fresh grass mat. The oatmeal adds a nice creaminess and the palate is smooth with bold but not overbearing levels of carbonation. Nice example of a sweet stout.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JUN 28, 2003
Good dark head, with a small esppreso head. Strong coffee flavor with a hint of caramel.

Norton (328) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2003 Draft. Tan head contains oddly large bubbles, crunchy/crisp foam which reminds me of when you mix Coke & milk. Nearly opaque black appearance. Wispy thin mouthfeel. Indistinguished toasty flavor. Slightly above average.
