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.

Higher rating than what I thought I’d give it. Not only could I feel the lumps of oatmeal in this, but I swear it made me halucinate so bad the Quaker Fuckin’ Oats guy just flew across the room.

Having tried both the bottle and tap version, I can say this is not one of the better Oatmeal Stouts that I’ve tried. There’s nothing really bad about it, it’s just a bit weak and thin flavored. Call it ’Oatmeal Stout Lite’.

Nice dark color. You can pick up Certain falvors well and some you can’t. Coffee finish and very smooth. I thought this beer was excellent.

i’m almost at a loss on how to rate this beer..tastes much more like a hoppy APA than a stout...weird indeed. i dont want to hurt it’s rating, but the coffee chocolate flavors are masked by a big hoppy flavor...in addition, i’ve noticed that as it warms, it begins to take on more characteristics of a stout

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2003 Pours a dark brown with a short living head. The flavor is of mollases and raisins. Not much lacing. Not much of an aroma, and for some this brewery has and unusually bad aftertaste.

Decent stout. Had some flavors I couldnt recognise or enjoy. Head was rather weak too. Nothing like the picture on this webpage.

pauliefrog99 (302) - FLINT, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2002
Very fruity taste. I picked up raisins and a slight roasted flavor. Also a little bit of licorice. Some coffee flavor in the finish. This is good stuff. Very Complex.

Dense looking, black/opaque color, with a solid brown colored foam. There’s a noticeable floral hoppy aroma that kind of masks the underlying roasted malty and chocolate undertones. It’s lightly carbonated, soft, with a smooth silky mouthfeel, and a palate that is pretty full in body. The first signs of flavor are chocolaty, which could even verge on pasty, maybe expected from the oatmeal, while there’s a good mix of caramel malts that create a wonderfully smooth creaminess. It’s also roasted, as I would expect, and does offer a more than generous share of smokiness. There’s a slight tang in the finish, just briefly reminding me that this is a west coast ale, but the biggest character in the finish is an overall satisfying burnt dryness. The aftertaste is smooth and long, you can still taste the chocolate and roasted flavors as well as a soft lingering smokiness. Excellent example.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2002
Black, big head. Licorice and roast in the nose. Some fruity and hoppy notes in the body that blend nicely with the big roasted flavors. Also, some coffee notes in the long palate. Great brew.
