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.

kevinsenn (1176) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from LCBO. Strong roasty chocolate aroma. Not-as-strong taste, roasty and creamy and moderately bitter. Dry finish. Nice.

Moolesen (247) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle 35,5cl. Blavk with a brown foamy head. Nice smell of coffee, and roasted malt. Very smooth and nice taste, but not as full bodied as I’ve expected. Hints of hops and a medium lengt.

hangunder (280) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
Smells quite nice, roasted malt, dark cocoa and chocolate notes. Very dark, long lasting creamy brown head. Interesting light taste, upfront some dark malt, finishes with metallic notes, grassy hops and a hint of soy. Not too intense, fairly refreshing for an oatmeal stout. Well balanced but not overly complex. Average carbonation.

Freaky_tiki (654) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2014 Dark & moody stout that offers a moderate cap that vanishes quicker than a plate of nachos at the pub after work. A pretty decent oatmeal stout that hits all the marks of coffee, roasted malts & smooth finish. An interesting cherry cola note sustains through each sip. Good, but not even close to some of the over really high scores below. Recommended.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2014 Can to snifter. Pours black, head reduces soon. Aroma is straw and oats like you would feed a horse--like a barn. I am a country guy, I suppose. Barnyard follows to taste, plus a nice roasted malt and chocolatey taste, with a pleasant bitter finish with a note of coffee grounds. Aftertaste of a burnt roach and not the crawling kind (I miss that). A damn good country stout. A go-to craft stout for me. Score: A Reply to above accuser: this is not a fake review. Im a country guy and I like this stout; what can I say? Cheers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

loubar (112) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Appearance is black and nearly opaque with a beige head that disappears quickly. Nose of chocolate fudge, dark malts and coffee. Taste is rich roastiness, woody, chocolate with some sweetness in the finish. Mouth feel quite full for the percentage. Excellent stout.

BrunoSanchez (153) - Fermo, ITALY - NOV 25, 2014
Perfetta oatmeal stout della California! Scura con schiuma beige. Al naso i classici sentori di arrosto e soia. In bocca coposa e ben bilanciata tendenzialmente amara e delicata. Sapore molto ricco e pieno di una stout con note di chioccolato e melassa. Finale persistente. Ottima!

Chocolate, smooth. Not smoky, not too sweet. Extremely light and airy for a dark beer.
