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.

I was very surprised by this one. Silky black body underneath a thick creamy head set up the visual appeal while the robust chocolate and espresso malts provide a big sweet wonderful flavor. Very nice balance between the sweet malt and the bitter finish - cloying mouthfeel sticks around long after you've taken a sip leaving a very nice flavor on the palate. Yum.

Not a bad oatmeal stout,however, the bitter after taste, and thin body puts me off a bit. Too many bitter hops in this one to give a top score.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 A good all-arounder in the world of stouts, but I was let down by what to me was a slightly light/thin body. Good flavor profile, with a chocolate/burnt bitterness, although there is that typical West Coast hop edge that makes this kind of beer a little bit suspect. Drier than I expected. The head this produces is decent, but not creamy, and it fully dissipates. Good oil black color. An honors graduate, to be sure, but among too many good students in its class to be the valedictorian.

Very dark with red around the edges, dark tan head. Bitter chocolately with a creamy mouthfeel.

This one pours jet black with a small brown head. A small tan layer stays on top and helps lacings develop on the glass. It has a rich aroma of chocolate malts with a hint of hops. Full bodied and very rich, the flavor is smooth and full of chocolate and coffee notes. The finish is slightly sweet with a touch of hop flavor. An excellent oatmeal stout, smooth, robust, and flavorful.

Pours a motor oil black. Very little head. Roasted bitter chocolate flavor is doing battle with sweet creamy oatmeal texture. The aftertaste leaves a sour better flavor that is not pleasant - this the sub par rating.

Very good oatmeal stout! Sweet and creamy flavor much different than what some people expect when they hear "stout". I tried it from the bottle, but still was impressed!

WabashMan (1017) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2003
Nice color and head (by the way, don't you love it when a stout has that caramel colored head?). Aroma is good, though not up to the level of the appearance. The flavor is very nice, deep, and delicious. A very nice sweet stout, which would rate higher if it weren't for the overwhelming number of great stouts. But, this one does pretty well, even among the company it keeps.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2003
Pours wonderfully dark, with a very nice creamy head. Very nutty, and a nice cream like palate, almost milky. The oats really come out in the finish. Probably my favorite by this brewer, thus far.
