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.

Good stout. Nothing overall that blew my socks off, just solid. Roasted aroma and black as could be. Slightly off-white head that was quite foamy. Mainly burnt toast and some woody flavors. All malt with barely any hops on the finish. Not heavy and maybe a little thin for my liking. Easy to drink. Well balanced.

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.

Bottle from Bert’s 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

Transfer from BA review on 8-31-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance –Served a deep brown nearly black beer with a one finger tan head. The head faded over time to give a good level of lacing. Smell – The aroma overall, was rather light but pleasant. It was a mix of some roasted malt as well as a light bit of chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Taste – The taste began of a more dry roasted malt flavor with a chocolate and roasted coffee flavor greeting the tongue. These flavors are quickly meet by some caramel sweetness and a bit of dark fruit. As the taste advances further, it sweetens even more with some flavors of vanilla and cream coming in at the end. Overall it leaves a very satisfyingly sweet yet roasty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side for an oatmeal stout of its strength with a carbonation level that is slightly higher then normal. Overall – Other than the weakness in the feel of the brew it was very good. It had a wonderful taste profile and a great appearance. Easy to drink and very tasty.

I chose this juicy beer to combine my celebration for the entrance in my new house, in Amsterdam. As I refered it is enough juicy or floral. Maube a special coffe in its taste. A bit caramel too.

Dark brown/black with a burnt brown head. Looks like it will be heavy. Somewhat muted aroma of chocolate, oatmeal and hazelnut. Tastes a little watery - dull flavours; malt and a little soapy. Way thinner than I’d have liked - expected carbonation for style and doesn’t coat mouth much. Pretty average.
