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.

Dark tan, with a large head that vanishes quickly and completely, leaving a beer that looks like flat Coke. Aroma of coffee, chocolate malt. Flavor is overly bitter for my taste, and for the style as well. Thin-bodied, lacking any significant malt presence. Finish is mostly bitter and not much else. A pretty bad beer, actually.

Aroma is chocolatety and inviting, but the flavor doesn't support that so much. It is pretty creamy, and very strong tones of lactose and also very yeasty. Not quite sweet enough, in my opinion, to be called a sweet stout - it's too smokey. I think that Young's Oatmeal Stout is superior, but even more so, Heartland Brewery's Oatmeal Stout if you can get it. The bitter finish puts me off, but really this isn't a bad beer, I'm just making it sound that way, I guess.

Very sweet smell, with hints of some sweet fruit, but also of molasses and chocolate. Poured with absolutely no head after 15 seconds. Great inital flavour, perfect carbonation. A perfect aftertaste, mildly sweet...but still full of great oatmeal flavour. A good oatmeal stout that rivals Samuel Smith's!

Great dark color, 3/4" tan head. Smokey chocolate aroma. Has a great oaty, rich flavor. Perfect aftertaste.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Black, but not as sin, with amber shallows and little head. The prominent oaty molasses bite of this brew gives it an exciting flavor. The aroma is pleasantly strong. This beer definately has character.

Oh, this is a good stout. Very thick with a nice mouthfeel. I taste lots of licorice in it. Not too sweet, but just right. An excellent stout.

A tasty concoction sure to delight fans of Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout. This one is richer, with a strong, pleasant, sweet flavor. Pours with a nice brown head, and an enticing aroma. Even though this one is a stout, it reminds me of a malty (slightly hopped) barleywine instead of a stout. The sweetness overrides any smoked flavors that may be present. A good beer, and superior to Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, in my opinion.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 13, 2003
Dark, rich thick pour; head is large, medium-brown, fizzy and quick-dying. Big, beautiful sweet chocolaty nose, good medium-sweet chocolate/oaty flavor with a powerful robust finish. I happen to like my oatmeals sweeter, not sure if this is the right balance for me, but its very well made and enjoyable. Can't believe its taken me this long to get to this brewer.

Extremely dark reddish color when held up to the light. Big head with a dark chocolate color. Aroma is malty, chocolately, sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor is chocolatey, smokey, sweet, with a hint of the oats that makes this an oatmeal stout. Overall a very nice stout.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Pours a beautiful deep black, with a thick dark tan head, quickly receeding to leave pretty srong lace. Aroma is lightly chocolate, some roasted malt (coffee, a little caramel), and some decent floral hops tacked on for good measure. Flavor is sweet, chocolate, some caramel, in the middle some roasted coffee, and ends with a good hoppiness. Body is medium, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Maybe more hops that I expect from a stout, but being a hophead, I welcome them.
