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.

Thick, black and very viscous texture. Some hop notes on the nose and malt sweetness as well. Very filling and one of the few oatmeal stouts where I can notice the oatmeal’s texture.

Ernest (6200) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (not opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, rancid nuts), with notes of plaster/sheetrock. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean, husky. Medium body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Blech. Man, these canned AV brews have sucked pretty hard, and this one is just the same. Nasty stale aroma and a dirty aftertaste. Complete and utter garbage.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 9, 2002
12OZ bottle: The slight head doesn’t last for long. The taste is fairly one-sided, not that the hops or malt dominate, but everything is ’thin’. I want to try this again.

Enjoyable stout, doesn’t come up to Old Rasputin, but few do.

Deep dark color. Brownish hued head, not creamy, more of a ’carbonation’ look. Tasting notes of coffee, syrup a bit of dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. I thought the flavors could be a bit more pronounced - still a solid beer, just looking for a bit more forward flavors.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2002
Black body with a very thich chocolate head. Deep to medium, rich roasted barley give way to a sweet, sharp, flavorful body that could use a little more carbonation.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2002
I have always like the hopping in this one. It lack some of the roasted barley flavors and some thickness. Very smooth as you should expect from an oatmeal stout. Finish is fairly sweet. A very mouthcoating brew.

Very sour, hoppy. What the hell were these brewers thinking?

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2002
thick body. slightly roasted malt taste. medium hop bite, touch of raisins vinous tastes at the finish. Not as much oat flavor as I would expect. Closer to a light cream stout.
