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.

Dark, rich thick pour; head is large, medium-brown, fizzy and quick-dying. Big, beautiful sweet chocolaty nose, good medium-sweet chocolate/oaty flavor with a powerful robust finish. I happen to like my oatmeals sweeter, not sure if this is the right balance for me, but its very well made and enjoyable. Can't believe its taken me this long to get to this brewer.

Extremely dark reddish color when held up to the light. Big head with a dark chocolate color. Aroma is malty, chocolately, sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor is chocolatey, smokey, sweet, with a hint of the oats that makes this an oatmeal stout. Overall a very nice stout.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Pours a beautiful deep black, with a thick dark tan head, quickly receeding to leave pretty srong lace. Aroma is lightly chocolate, some roasted malt (coffee, a little caramel), and some decent floral hops tacked on for good measure. Flavor is sweet, chocolate, some caramel, in the middle some roasted coffee, and ends with a good hoppiness. Body is medium, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Maybe more hops that I expect from a stout, but being a hophead, I welcome them.

jsquire (3402) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Creamy brown head on top of a black beer with a sweet, roasted grain nose. Very creamy mouthfeel with a buttery caramel sweetness on top of a nice, bitter coffee finish.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2003
I was very surprised by this one. Silky black body underneath a thick creamy head set up the visual appeal while the robust chocolate and espresso malts provide a big sweet wonderful flavor. Very nice balance between the sweet malt and the bitter finish - cloying mouthfeel sticks around long after you've taken a sip leaving a very nice flavor on the palate. Yum.

Pencom (18) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Not a bad oatmeal stout,however, the bitter after taste, and thin body puts me off a bit. Too many bitter hops in this one to give a top score.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 A good all-arounder in the world of stouts, but I was let down by what to me was a slightly light/thin body. Good flavor profile, with a chocolate/burnt bitterness, although there is that typical West Coast hop edge that makes this kind of beer a little bit suspect. Drier than I expected. The head this produces is decent, but not creamy, and it fully dissipates. Good oil black color. An honors graduate, to be sure, but among too many good students in its class to be the valedictorian.

Very dark with red around the edges, dark tan head. Bitter chocolately with a creamy mouthfeel.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2003
This one pours jet black with a small brown head. A small tan layer stays on top and helps lacings develop on the glass. It has a rich aroma of chocolate malts with a hint of hops. Full bodied and very rich, the flavor is smooth and full of chocolate and coffee notes. The finish is slightly sweet with a touch of hop flavor. An excellent oatmeal stout, smooth, robust, and flavorful.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Pours a motor oil black. Very little head. Roasted bitter chocolate flavor is doing battle with sweet creamy oatmeal texture. The aftertaste leaves a sour better flavor that is not pleasant - this the sub par rating.
