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.

The beer pours to a dark black body with a creamy khaki head. Spotty lacing. The aroma is a lightly tart oatmeal and molasses. Chocolate. The palate is lacking for an oatmeal. Medium bodied with a light tartness. Decent.

Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Smell had roasted chocolate, courant, soy, espresso and oatmeal. Taste was smooth but a bit watery at times. Solid session beer.

Something of a disappointment for me, being a fan of AV. It tasted too much like their other beers instead of tasting like a stout.

Pours black with a tan head that fades to a cover. Some lacing. Aroma is roasted and sweet, fair amount of chocolate. Flavor is light and sweet, chocolate with a slightly roasted, bitter finish. Texture is slightly watery.

Big stout. Chocolaty, creamy, smooth on the palate. Very satisfying. Smells like coffee, semisweet chocolate, and roasted malts. Nice flavor.

Pours stout opaque and offers a sticky sweet scent. Palate is full-bodied and even-keeled. Flavor is strongly sweet at first, followed by an oatmeal dryness, and concluded with a light hoppy bitterness. This careful balance of flavors is what makes this stout exceptional in an unassuming way.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Okay, I love stouts and oatmeal. This may be even better than the version offered by Samuel Smiths. Full, rich, and satisfying - and really not too sweet.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2005
A good looking stout; tight, light tan head made up of small bubbles sitting on top of an opaque, black brew. Strong roasted malt flavor with overtones of coffee and chocolate. Slightly sweet, in character with an oatmeal, followed by a pleasant hoppy bitterness. The second swallow seemed to be a bit thin, lacking in body. It didn’t have the lip-licking smack of a great stout

I have never tasted a better beer, let alone a better stout. Thick clean tasting with a good head. The only possible way to get a better beer (if you like stouts) than this is to go there in person to Booneville, CA and have one from a keg....Bottom Line: If you love stout beer - you will love this. I would also recomend this beer for someone who is just starting to enjoy different kinds of beers. I gave one of these to my girlfriend who is 23 and "doesn’t like beer" and she loved it! BTW anderson valley brewery has won many awards including "top 10 brewerys in the US" and this beer (Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout) has won numerous gold / silver bronze medals world wide against WORLD CLASS stouts. It truly is one of the best stouts in the world. And its my favorite!
