3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark ruby color. There’s a nice two finger head with a khaki shade that caps the body off nicely. Retention is good, texture is great, and plenty of lacing is left behind. This one looks damn good.
S: This is what I’d want a solid oatmeal stout to smell like: decent chocolate notes, plenty of roast, and oatmeal to tie everything together. No twists or turns, just a really good aroma.
T: It starts with a bit of cola flavor. The finish, though, is excellent: it’s chocolaty, roasty, and bitter in all the right ways. While simplistic, it really makes good use of what it has to deliver an enjoyable experience.
M: Yes, this is rather thin in body. The rich flavor means this is still a good one to savor. But man...if it had a full body, that would really take it over the top. I still enjoy how creamy it is in the mouth, and there’s only enough carbonation to help it go down well.
O: Oh yeah, now this is the stuff. It’s not perfect, but it’s damn enjoyable - it would be in the 4+ range if it weren’t so thin or overly cola-flavored. I would definitely buy this again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a real dark brown colour with hardly any highlights. Big creamy-froth beige head with great retention and full lacing. Roasted malt aromas with nutty notes, caramel, maple syrup, dark fruits and the oats to round things up. Seems a bit light for the body, a little watery. The taste reflects on this, being a little milder than the nose. The roasted malts are smooth with the oats, hints of molasses and dark fruits. Not a bad brew for those who prefer their stouts thinner and with not as much punch.

Dark colour with thiny light brown head. Aroma of coffe, roasted malts, dark chocolate. the same is the taste with almost no bitterness. Aftertaste is little watery. Maybe I was expected a little more specific stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Piana be?owa, drobna, sztywna.
Aromat ?liwek, kawy, karmelu, chleba razowego.
Smak tego piwa to kopia aromatów uzupe?niona o goryczk? i delikatn? kwaskowato??. Goryczka jest troch? cierpka i "przypalona". Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout nie jest przesadnie mocny 5,8%, ale alkohol i tak mimo to po ogrzaniu jest wyczuwalny. Na finiszu bardziej czu? przypalony karmel. Podsumowuj?c piwo dobre, ale nie rozwala, minusem jak dla mnie na pewno jest alkohol i zbyt du?o karmelu.
Je?li za? chodzi o owsiank? to nie mam poj?cia gdzie si? podzia?a.
