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.

Beautifully tan head, but it’s thin and dissipates quickly. Aroma is unique, but in an excellent way. It fills me up by just inhaling it. Good flavor, but it changes quickly to a funky finish, or as they say, a ’bittersweet finish.’ It’s a little thinner than I’d like.

Warm roasted coffee flavor with deep chocolate tones. Thoroughly typical for this variety. Rich and tasty finish.

A thick dark black beautiful stout with a full chocolate colored head. Stunning in appearance. Aroma was rather light, faintly smelled of coffee and caramel (kinda like Starbucks). Great taste. A nice pop on a crisp caramel chocolate taste. Very drinkable. Could easily have several of them in one sitting. Very smooth finish. Loved it!

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2002
Dark, oily color with a thick but quickly disappearing brown head. Great roasted coffee and cinnamon aroma. Flavor is creamy and sweet from the get-go, which is just how I like my Oatmeal Stouts. The coffee and chocolate flavor had a nice light hops and raisin finish to balance it out. Not the best Stout I have had but it is definitely up there, and is not very expensive either.

Dark coffee hue. Aromas of pine and dark chocolate. Dark tan head. Sweet malt, oily textured, medium to full bodied. Sweetness is very enjoyable, and a lovely bitterseet chocolate finish. Creamy and very drinkable. I would almost like some more alcohol in this beer, or perhaps some more body.

Somewhat disappointing after several friends had talked this beer up. Strong burnt chocolate taste. I prefer my oatmeal stouts a bit smoother, but a decent beer overall.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2002
Sweet aroma, almost like burnt plums. Tangy, roasted, somewhat sweet flavor with a moderate bitterness and an unfortunate cloying finish. With time, reminds me of a Mackeson’s quite a bit, with a milky chocolate taste.

Dark with a great head. Lots of hops. Chewy texture was very pleasing. Would definitely recommend it.

As dark as they come, the head is frothy, long lasting and light chocolate in color, the lace is in sheets. Nose is toasted grains, bitter sweet chocolate, expresso maybe a better hint as to the aroma. Front is sweet, the top is light to medium, the finish is dry, nice hop presence, long lasting after taste and a quite decent stout. Ranks #420 on my current 1000 beer master list.
