Svart vätska med kraftfull brun krona som lämnar mycket rester. Doften är syrlig och frisk med lätta kaffeinslag. Smaken är ganska tunn och syrlig med lätta kaffeinslag. Ganska lätt och tråkig men inte dålig

Rich and complex chocolate aroma, top stuff. Flavor is a bit of a disappointment considering a great aroma, no bitterness presence or roasted malts... Long and satisfying aftertaste thou, chocolate and coffee. Good one, I would expect a richer body when it comes to oatmeal stouts

Aromat zbyt delikatny. Piwo treściwe, a w smaku wyraźnie czuć dobrą kawę, mimo to piwo nie jest kwaskowate.

Based on the aroma alone, you know this is going to be good. The taste is rich and not bitter with an overall smooth and balanced taste - very flavorful with oat/caramel/chocolate notes and a bit of hop. Color is very dark, not quite black but what you’d expect from a stout.

Fuerte aroma a tostado y caramelo. Color café muy oscuro. Agradable al paladar suave y con cuerpo. Sabor muy tostado como tomar café. Final seco. Buen ejemplo de una stout avena. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (1124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12 oz. can, consumed on 9-4-14. Malty, tinny, tarry aroma features a plum scent. Subtle and refreshing smell. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a large amount of dark beige head. Very nice, even head with a creamy consistency. Produces some lacing. Simple but enjoyable taste emphasizes the roasted malts and features a dark chocolate flavor. Dry, roasted aftertaste. Light body. Easy to drink. Oaty softness and some liveliness in the palate. Nice softness, but too aqueous to stand out. Overall, likable enough but simple.

Bruds (16) - - SEP 6, 2014
Poured from a can. Dark with a thick head. Very smooth. Finishes nicely. Leaves a sweet, almost flowery taste on the palate.

JMCtime (14) - Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2014
One of the few oatmeal stouts where you can really taste oatmeal mixed with mild coffee and chocolate flavors. Very good.

goudvink (4) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2014 does not count
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

This is an excellent stout. The flavor starts far more mellow than most stouts I’ve 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 isn’t. It’s 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 I’m concerned.
