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.

Huge tan head. Deep BBQ sauce and oatmeal aroma. Roasted malty and crispy burnt flavor but slightly watery and lacking some bitterness.

Upon pouring, carbonation quickly settled into a tan head. Creamy and soft looking. The body is very dark, and when held to light a tan-ruby color could be seen. Coffee and chocolate scents could be immediately sensed. Lighter vanilla and fig aromas were given off. I could sense a very roasted flavor to this brew. While the hops were strong, the bitterness quickly faded after drinking. Smooth beer that is an enjoyable drink!

I paid $1.69 for a 12-oz single. Holy smokes! I was away from the computer when I reviewed this beer on paper. I couldn't wait to get back here and post this one! Black- inch of fluffy, creamy looking brown head. Light, only when held up to a VERY high wattage bulb, will trickle through here. One gorgeous brew. Sweet chocolate scent. WOW! Just about knocks me on my ass it's so good! Perfectly balanced. Cold coffee-- the best (THE BEST, I say) cold coffee I've had- slight hints of chocolate and winter fruits linger within... wow. VERY smooth and creamy- a dream come true! OUTSTANDING beer. I wish I would have picked up more than a single... well, this beer alone is enough to make me go to the beer store tomorrow =)

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 27, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Pour is black, opaque, thick brown head on top. Aroma is of roasted malt and sweet carmel malt. Nice sweet silky texture when you swallow. I even detect a bit of smoke. Was a bit light bodied for a stout, but still a very nice mouthfeel.

kathouse (1106) - Nevada, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Aroma is hoppy with some oats and malt hiding in the background. Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Beer has good carbonation, but a thin mouthfeel. Odd for an oatmeal stout. Strong bitterness that stays well after the beer is gone. Some roasted notes with definite oatmeal taste. Light chocolate. Don't know what it is, but this beer doesn't leave a lasting impression.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Has a chocolate and coffee aroma with flavors of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Had a somewhat water mouth feel for a stout.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Black with a big tan head. Nose is chocolate and coffee. Flavor is bittersweet with a healthy dose of oatmeal. Creamy smooth finish.

aracauna (3138) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2004
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.

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!

drseuss620 (4) - San Jose, California, USA - JAN 12, 2004 does not count
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.
