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.

Bottle. Black color with a brown head that is well maintained. The aroma has a lot of burnt malts and coffee. The flavor has a nice chocolate base.

beautiful, thich obsidian body with a big tight chocolatey brown head. Appropriately sweet. Milk chocolate and some decent hop presence. Heavily roasted malts offer a burnt/coffee taste that slides into the sweet oats. some late unsweetened cocoa too. a mild astringency & some acidity to the finish. Good beer!

I also noticed the licorice-like aroma and taste. Why this is called an oatmeal stout I’m not sure though. I noted nothing of the oats, wheat and grain family even. It’s OK otherwise, with that strange (but good) licorice taste. It’s not too terribly matly and has an understated bitter finish. The real downfall on this one is the extrememly light body. It looked really rich and deliscious when served, but it ended up water-down and weak. This is false advertising folks.

deep and dark with a short-lasting head. too sweet and thin for a stout.

Crit (3306) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2010 Black with quick dissipating brown head. Smooth sweet oatmeal flavor. Ok, but lacking in body and flavor

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 6, 2003
Poured think black, like motor oil used twice, one of the darkest beers yet. Smelled of subtle oats with a bitter finish. Tasted the same, but with a little more coffee flavors. Went down very creamy, but not the best, didn"t really see the sweet side of this beer. Kinda bitter, but an overall good oatmeal stout.

Decent but not extraordinary. Something worth trying but not the best stout I have ever had.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Appearence was impressive. Black with nice tan head. Tastes of roasted malt and chocolate with a nice mouthfeel and subtle sweetness. A good oatmeal stout.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2002
Bottled. Dark black. Licorice aroma. Dryish nose, rather light bodied, yet firm with creamy mouthfeel. Clean with lingering salty licorice finish.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2002
Sweet and tangy aroma - bitter roastiness. Coffee/chocolate, smoke, molasses. Small thin tan foamy head. Medium oily body - thick on the tongue. Bit of a burn. Medium carb. Low sweetness with big roated malts. Burnt coffee and chocolate hints. Medium nutty finish and after that sticks to your gums. Not too smooth. A decent offering.
