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.

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

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.

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.

A little thin on the palate, but very good flavor. Smooth and easy to drink. This is probably domestic Oatmeal Stout I’ve tried, but still not as good as the Sam Smith’s.

Great choco/coffee roasted flavor. Very smooth. Very nice on the palate--seemed almost fizzy, very pleasant sensation.

Almost black with a short lived light brown head. Roasted malt and coffee nose. Rich bubbly mouthfeel. Nice oatmeal profile with hints of chocolate , coffee and unfortunatley...celery or something similar. Not a bad drink though, smooth and drinkable. Could use more work. Does get more enjoyable as it warms.
