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.

Probably the wrong beer to be having on a 95+ degree day, but well worth it. Intense chocolate / oatmeal aroma is prelude to the flavor. Head starts off nicely but disappears soon after pouring. One of the darkest beers Iíve seen. A bit sticky feel to it. Hop aftertaste complements the flavor well. Another oatmeal stout I enjoy.

Black as night, with a thick, dense, dark tan head. Its aroma is a little weak, with alcohol showing through; but its flavor is stronger, with oatmeal and bitter hops to cover up the alcohol. The aftertaste has a weak suggestion of espresso. This is an okay brew, but not a first-rate stout by any means.

lustrous inky sable like a panther in deep jungle darkness, a thin garnet cresent is etched along the lower edge. head was latte brown, quickly ebbing. prominent nose of umber-baked deep dish pies: fruit pies overflowing and carmelizing somewhat, perhaps even mincemeat. doppel yummy. gorgeous port-like sweetness, coffee, light bitterness, whisper of alcohol. licorice in the aftertaste. indeed not as full bodied as some, but still balanced and complicated enough to rate as exceptional.

pivo (2571) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2002
Strong, grainy scent (oatmeal?) and a huge head sitting atop an opaque brew. Espresso-like, earthy taste with a full bitterness. The noticeable alcohol intesifies the taste. Great stout.

Sweat OutmeŠl and fruity aroma. Nice black colour with a wonderful big head. Espressotaste with fruit. Fullmouth Palate, kicks on roof of th mouth. Very interesting beer!

A nice after dinner brew - chocolate somewhat sweet up front a load of licorice in the middle where you notice itís a little thin and a pleasant dry close. Good stuff.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2002
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 oatmealís texture.

Ernest (6260) - 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 doesnít last for long. The taste is fairly one-sided, not that the hops or malt dominate, but everything is íthiní. I want to try this again.
