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.

Pretty good. Very rich flavor just as can be expected. Not terribly oatmealy, but good nonetheless.

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.

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.

An incredible oatmeal stout. Rich yet smooth with an aftertaste experience worth savoring.

Attack of the Monster Head! It was like some kind of chemical reation that refused to stop. Couldn't get the whole bottle into the pint glass right off. Nothing over complicated about the palate except for that bit of bitterness, which was lasting but mild in the finish. There's a noticeable creaminess, but I was hoping for a bit more from an oatmeal stout. Easier to drink that some other stouts I've tried recently.

tkaufman (129) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2003
Seriously overcarbonated out of a 22oz bottle. Took me 4 pours to get a full pint. Aroma of roasted malts was good, color was appropriate, but this didn't have the velvety smoothness that usually accompanies an oatmeal stout. Not a keeper.

adrenalin112 (57) - Lake Forest, California, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Very serious stout, great dark coffee appearance. Yet, attacks the palate with no mercy. Not for the faint of palate.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2003
Black color with a nice 1 inch thick brown head. Medium body. Smells malty and kinda like dog. Taste roasted malt and smokey.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 27, 2003
Pours black with a great tan rocky head. Sweet nose with burnt toast. Very good mouthfeel and a nice sweetness to it ala Sammy Smiths OS. A great session beer.
