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.

Fatehunter (1750) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Black, inch and half tan head that built up perfectly. Best pour from a bottle I have ever seen. Dry hay, burnt malt, and cocoa. Burnt malt with the edges smoothed by chocolaty velvet. Ends with some malty sweetness. Initially bubbly but overall light carbonation. Medium bodied and soft. Very smooth; an excellent and perfect drink.

greenmanalishi (506) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Pours very dark with a light tan head. Flavours are quite subtle compared to some stouts of this strength. Toffee malty, roasty milk flavours but overall quite mellow and a bit thin.

Savagesteeler (84) - Warszaw, POLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Aromat bardzo przyjemny, lekko czekoladowo rumowy, palony. Piwo czarne, z beżową piana. W smaku troche gorzej, dominuje palona goryczkowosc, lekkie nuty kwaskowatosci, gorzka czekolada gdzieś tam w tle, ale słaba. Ogólem za mocno wysycone, przez co srednio pijalne.

Oil dark, brown head. A: rye, overripe prunes, brown sugar, faint hairspray note. Oily sensation, good balance. T: sweet, chocolaty, oily. Starts with chocolate, faint rye note, very faint fruity note, mostly cherry. Develops towards a relatively fruity bitterness with strong wood note. Aftertaste is sweet and dry, peanut butter, rye. Smooth, tasty, well balanced: Great for this low abv.

tightslice (499) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle at Vesta in Redwood City, CA. Light cocoa, roasted malts. Perhaps I’ve been hanging with some pretty rich Stouts / Dark Stuff lately but this seemed underwhelming and mellow.

sjorsvdg (181) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2015
Kleur zwart met lichte crèmekleurige laag schuim. Aroma van havermout en gist. Smaak idem dito. Subtiele smaak, weinig bitter en zoet, maar juist zacht. Lichte gebrande smaak.

Zlotta (444) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2015
0.355 l bottle from local Albert Heijn, best before 15/3/2016. Clear, very dark, almost opaque, brownish red to black with a medium large, creamy, quickly diminishing, brown head. Sweetish-malty aroma of raisins, nuts, toffee, milk chocolate and vanilla. Sweetish-malty taste of milk chocolate, nuts, vanilla and some coffee, followed by a short, slightly bitter, roasty finish. Medium to full body, creamy and smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very tasty, rather full-bodied for such a low abv. Not too deep of course but very harmonic and nicely balanced. Like it!

procraste (237) - FRANCE - AUG 31, 2015
Donc oui, c’est noir. Nous ne sommes pas dans la Pale Ale. Le nez schlingue: Pain d’épice et pruneaux fermentés ... Ou un truc du genre, mais avec de la fraîcheur. L’attaque en bouche suit le même chemin et je me dis que ce doit être l’avoine ... Pas très épais qui plus est ... Franchement j’ai du mal ... Peut-être en se réchauffant ? Non même pas. Bouteille mal conservée ?? A revoir donc
