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.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Pours a syrupy dark brown, settling into a dark black mass topped with a creamy head. Notes of maple syrup, bakers chocolate, and a touch of roasty malt in the nose with a touch of hop spice. Full bodied and sticky. Loads of malty sweetness offset by flavors of coffee and other roastiness. Long, warm finish. A nice example of the style. Easy to drink more than one of these in a sitting.

Beautiful thick head of off white on a black body. Roast coffee malt aroma that improves greatly as it warms. Nice balance of roasty bitterness and sweet malt. Lacks a little in body, but makes it up with an exceptionally smooth brew over the tongue. Very drinkable Stout.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Bottle. Really liked this one. Heaps of flavour. Malts are porridgey, cooky-ish, roasted, sweetish to start, finishes bitter and slightly off-dry, long finish, tasty stout. Re-rate:Didn't like it as much this time, not as much flavour as i remembered the first time round.

Bottle purchased from Beverages and More, San Diego, whilst on holiday. Brandy aroma, inky colouring and a small, brown head. Silky and clean on the tongue, like nougat. Becomes more grainy and stromg tasting down the throat, with a coffee bitterness. A balanced Stout.

The stout style inherently has a "head start" - I’ve never seen a stout that doesn’t pour that thick, long lasting head. No exception here, and the aroma is rather vivid with elements of chocalate oatmeal-raisin cereal. It does seem rather thin for a stout, almost as if drinking a hyped-up San Miguel dark or similar. As in its description, it is rather sweet; however, it’s not cloyingly so, and the peaty elements still impart a strong presence. The finish is average for an oatmeal stout, perhaps more like bittersweet chocalate caramel, the raisin flavor having dissipated.

Overall this was a great beer. Pours dark, black with full aroma of toasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Mouthfeel was a little thiner than I am used to with an oatmeal stout. Nevertheless, I would put this one up against sam smith oatmeal stout anyday. It would lose, but it’s an interesting contest.

Nice coffee, toasted aroma; pours with a pillowy, fluffy head; rather mild flavored for an oatmeal stout; fairly sweet with a soft bitter finish and an assertive roasted flavour; generally, a bit thin in body and flavor, though, for the style; all in all, quite good.

This was good, but the guy at the World Market claimed it was better than the Sammy Smiths. I didn’t quite agree. It did look good, poured a nice black with fair head and smelled as I expected, with chocolate-coffee-oatmeal hints, but it was a little bitter and flatter than I hoped for. Overall, it is a very good stout, but definitely not better than Samual Smiths Oatmeal.

Pours a nice black with a decent sized tan head. Aroma has hints of chocolate and is a bit roasty. taste has a nice chocolate flavor and the oats add a nice smoothness to it. Starts sweet and finishes bitter.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Pours a rich robust deep dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is subtle, sweet and roasty. Smooth, mild and chocolatey body has some molasses and a nice hop balance. A good oatmeal stout.
