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.

Somewhat light roasty malt aroma. Seemingly adequate carbonation for an oatmeal stout. Exceedingly dark opaque color. Rather light in body, but has some pleasant enough coffeeish oatmeal and malt flavors intermingling. Itís almost like a porter... Aftertaste is also rather surprisingly thin, but not bad. This stout is not a big beer. I do like it okay, though.

An above average oatmeal stout, not quite as smooth as some of my favorites but a decent malt flavor followed by medium bitterness. Could use a little bit more hop balance, the malt flavor quickly disappears.

A very over-rated beer. The flavors are watery and bitter, and not the good kind of bitter; more of a staleness. Iíve tried it several times, so I know its not just one bad bottle. I did a side by side taste-off between this and Shakespeare Stout, and this one got blown away, not even close.

Nice roasted yet sweetish flavor. Perhaps a bit on the sharp side. Quite good but it didnít really ring my bell.

Fairly enjoyable stout. Smooth, good oatmeal flavour. You could do worse.

Recently tried a bomber of this bad boy. It was actually quite impressive. Sweet and thick, with a nice burnt-chocolate flavor. Strong alcohol aroma - just like an Imperial Stout (my wife could smell it on my breath from across the room). But damn it was good. Warm and soothing, a nice after-dinner beverage... er, anytime.
