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 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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2002
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.

Panzuriel (1298) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2002
Very nice coffeeish stout with some very nice hints of bitter flavors present. Smooth as silk mouthfeel with a nice creamy finish. Very dark and impressive in the glass.

Pours black and thick with a small tan head, coffee and some hops in the nose. Roasty coffee, with chocolate, good hops and a bit of tobacco, sweet finish. Silky mouthfeel as befits the style. Good stuff.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2003 Dark brown almost black color, decent size light brown lasting head, chocalate and burnt coffee aroma. Dark roasted malty chocolate- burnt coffee flavors, medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, starts sweet and ends with a nice bitter roasty finish with a noticable hop bite, good stuff here.

Nice burnt flavor, but the alcohol is a little too apparent for my tastes. Try the Samuel Smiths.
