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.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 A roasty discharge accompanies the chocolate cookies...Burnt notes furnish the palate appropriately as a fruitiness establishes itself for the long run...It is too carbonated and too lean for mu likings in stout, making the palate not that comfortable...Roastiness comes to ashes, as fruitiness finishes the sip...Fondness is inevitable for a well-made stout, but in this case I know I can find a much more satisfying example of the same style...

jercraigs (8091) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark brown black colour with average head. Bit of hops to it. Not a bad stout.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark brown, with a small head. Aroma of malts and oats, with a touch of roastiness. Flavors are very similar to the aroma, malty and slightly sweet oats with a touch of roasted barley.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Smokey, malty oatmeal stout with some oat flavor evident. Nice stout appearance and an overall quality if not complex flavor. Some very mild bitterness from the hops and the body is slightly weaker than anticipated. Nice but not the best.

tidiaguy (168) - Hawley, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Near black with a small dark tan head. Nice creamy rich look with a very god lace. Aroma is smoke and malt with a hint of bitter maybe dark chocolate or coffee. Toasted malt with a heavy smokey flavor, a little hop flavor mixed in there somewhere, bitterness is mild and come at the end. Over all good, but a little 1 dimensional.

AlabastorJones (808) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Dark black body, thin brown head, roasted aroma with hints of sweet fruit, dry roasted mocha flavor, a little bit of a hop finish. In the Mendocino Battle of the Stouts, The Bear with Antlers defeats the Black Hawk in a knock out.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Opaque black color with a thick brown head. Roasty aroma that becomes increasingly malty as it warms. Roasty mild bittersweet chocolate flavor. Slightly spicy finish.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 21, 2003
Extremely dark/ thick body. Big, brown, bubbly head looks like floating cinnamon oatmeal. Smells of chocolate, roasted malts and coffee. Taste is bitter coffee and chocolate. Spicy hop finish. Very nice beer. Sampled from a 12oz bottle at The Lost Dog Cafe in Arlington, VA.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Black with ruby edges when held up to light. Thick creamy dense head that diminishes quickly but lingers. Has a nice cookie dough aroma with roasted malt. Body is smooth and medium to full. Flavor is a bit weak with roasted malt in the foreground. Has slight bitterness and finishes dry. Not as sweet as I'd like it to be. Overall a quality beer though.
