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.

Good stout. Pours a deep black with a light brown head. Has a sweet roasted coffee and chocolatey flavor with some hops. The mouthfeel is not that thick and is a tad bit watery on the palate. Does not leave much of a roasted, burnt aftertaste. Overall a solid stout. I would pick this up again.

Nice. Perhaps just leaning a tiny bit too far for my taste in the licorice flavor, but other than that very good. Deep, dark, rich, fantastic fullness.

Almost black color with a dark brown head that diminishes pretty quick. Aroma is smokey with hints of dark chocolate and coffee. Becomes a little bitter at the end. This is a good sweet stout.

Nice tasting, medium bodied stout. Medium tan head that dissipated a bit more quickly than I would have liked. Black in color; mocha, malty and smoky flavors. A bit too hoppy for me, stout-wise.

Sweet coffee and chocolate, with nice roasted malt flavors. Had a slight metallic taste too, but overall a good sweet stout.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Almost opaque blackness under frothy tan head. Aroma hints of coffee, chocolate, licorice. Creamy, full bodied flavor with a roasted coffee touch. Very good.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Aroma has notes of chocolate, roasted grains, and caramel. Dark brown-black color, medium sized tan head (yeah, it looks like the picture). Flavor is the same as the aroma, with a surprising hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Pretty full-bodied, but not as creamy as some other oatmeal stouts. Overall, its not bad, but there are better oatmeal stouts out there.

I'm hoping that the one I tried was from a bad batch or something, because it was horrible. No head, extremely watery on the palate, and absolutely no hints of oatmeal (pretty bad for an oatmeal stout). I was really disappointed with this one. I hope others by AV don't follow suit.
