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.

Poured from a can. Dark with a thick head. Very smooth. Finishes nicely. Leaves a sweet, almost flowery taste on the palate.

One of the few oatmeal stouts where you can really taste oatmeal mixed with mild coffee and chocolate flavors. Very good.

Bottle. Thick and black. First tast a little disappointing but it grew on me: Well balanced stout Complex but easy to drink. Strong and smooth at the same Tim Light, fresh and dry. Finish bitter, medium long

msalsbury (26) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2014
This is an excellent stout. The flavor starts far more mellow than most stouts Iíve had. This smoothness gives way to a smoky, roasted grain bitterness that you would expect in a good stout. Where some stouts can be heavy-handed, syrupy thick, and a bit much to drink, Barney Flats isnít. Itís got a solid but not syrupy mouthfeel. The flavor has elements of chocolate, coffee, and malt with a properly-balanced hops bitterness. One of the best stouts on the market as far as Iím concerned.

degbert (1130) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Can. Pours a very dark brown-black with barely visible garnet highlights and a high, very tight, fine-grained light brown head. Nose is red wine, dried fruit, black tea, and baking chocolate. Rich and fruity up front on the tongue, then with a dark chocolate/coffee/raisin note kicking in on the mid-palate; a minty herbal note is also present, and the dryness increases all the way through. Finish is long, dry, herbal/piney, and smoky. Extremely good.

JulienHuxley (3158) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from Bertís Bierhuis Utrecht. Black pour with nice creamy off-white foam. Aroma is really vanilla forward, sweet dark malts, light licorice, herbal notes, oatmeal, very light roast. Taste is wicked smooth, nice sweet molasses touch, lots of vanilla on the finish, very low bitterness. Palate is smooth and creamy, easy drinking (med bodied).

Bottle pour... TJs. Very nice pour, dark reddish brown, foamy head dissipates. Aroma is hardly inspiring. First sip a bit less smooth than most stouts, bubbly. Clean palate, easy drinking. Decent coaster. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle at home, Black beer with a small head, aroma is liquorice, hint of cardboard, dark fruit, Taste is watery, light bitter, fruity,... not bad, but could be better, maybe a bit too old?
