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.

This one poured a clean black color with very little attempt at forming a head, leaving me once again to question how in the heck they got that picture over there in the upper left to look like that??? Aroma of coffee, smokeyness, and sweet oatmeal. The taste is very minimally carbonated and leads to much the same flavors, no surprises here. Coffee, perhaps chocolate and a sweet oatmeal taste, thanks to that malty goodness step out and greeted me to the candy store (well, thats what it felt like). Pleasantly smooth mouthfeel, but a bit thin on the oatmeal, and chocolateness. Ive never described it this was before but its almost as if the rollercoaster ride wasnt long enough to enjoy it. There was about a second each time this was in my mouth and it was good...and then poof...it was gone, only a dry chocolatey aftertaste was left. Ahhh, the mysteries of life.

Had on Tap: This is a great stout. Very rich and creamy. Dark black with a nice deep tan head and leaves nice lacing. Black licorice/anise in the taste with some mellow roasted malts, and some slight chocolate character. Aroma is more malty with subtle hop balance. One of my new favorite stouts.

Bottle. Black color with a brown head that is well maintained. The aroma has a lot of burnt malts and coffee. The flavor has a nice chocolate base.

beautiful, thich obsidian body with a big tight chocolatey brown head. Appropriately sweet. Milk chocolate and some decent hop presence. Heavily roasted malts offer a burnt/coffee taste that slides into the sweet oats. some late unsweetened cocoa too. a mild astringency & some acidity to the finish. Good beer!

I also noticed the licorice-like aroma and taste. Why this is called an oatmeal stout Iím not sure though. I noted nothing of the oats, wheat and grain family even. Itís OK otherwise, with that strange (but good) licorice taste. Itís not too terribly matly and has an understated bitter finish. The real downfall on this one is the extrememly light body. It looked really rich and deliscious when served, but it ended up water-down and weak. This is false advertising folks.

deep and dark with a short-lasting head. too sweet and thin for a stout.

Crit (3450) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2010 Black with quick dissipating brown head. Smooth sweet oatmeal flavor. Ok, but lacking in body and flavor

Poured think black, like motor oil used twice, one of the darkest beers yet. Smelled of subtle oats with a bitter finish. Tasted the same, but with a little more coffee flavors. Went down very creamy, but not the best, didn"t really see the sweet side of this beer. Kinda bitter, but an overall good oatmeal stout.

Decent but not extraordinary. Something worth trying but not the best stout I have ever had.
