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 (1642) - 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.

Alengrin (3125) - BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2015
Californian oatmeal stout, for sale at the Albert Heijn supermarkets in the Low Countries nowadays. Thinnish but moussy, light tan head, consisting of fairly large bubbles and breaking fairly quickly but leaving a stable rim around the glass, residing over a hazy, very dark burgundy coloured beer with ochre hue, blackish in its ’soul’ but still transparent, at least at the edges. Classic and fairly simple, but flawless stout bouquet of bitter chocolate, roasted coffee beans or cold black coffee, much caramel, cured meat, dried banana, blueberries, dates, raisins, leather, bayleaf, toasted bread, hint of furniture varnish, all quite mild, and working well together. Sweetish onset, raisins and figs, with soft carbo, smooth and oily but rather thin, even a bit watery mouthfeel even for this ABV, with still the typical ’silkiness’ of oatmeal which lends this beer a deep, vague grain sourishness; a certain metallic feel pops up as well. Nice caramel malts paired with a more chocolatey touch make up the main flavour in the middle phase, roasted bitterness only truly revealing itself upon swallowing and lingering a bit, though it is the caramelly and softly but still lightly bitter chocolatey malts which make up the main part of the finish; a dash of peppery, gently bittering hops is there as well. The subtle sourishness of the oats also linger. Alcohol remains perfectly hidden, as it ought to be for a beer of this ABV. Accessible, easy-going stout, technically well done, can serve as a perfect introduction to the oatmeal stout substyle.

Bomber poured into a pint, pours a nice dark brown with a mahogany head with little lacing. Nice notes of espresso and dried cherries along with toffee. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, licorice, dark fruits, caramel, malt and vanilla. Medium body and creamy texture. Overall it’s a decent oatmeal stout.

cervmagpt (395) - PORTUGAL - JUN 23, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 16B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: nice dark chocolate aroma with hints of licorice and faint coffee and walnut. no esters nor hops discernible. APPEARANCE: dark brown color and opaque. below average brown head with low retention. TASTE: predominant roasted malt flavour with burnt coffee notes. low hop bitterness with an almost dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body without much texture. medium carbonation. OVERALL: an oatmeal stout that promises on the aroma but cant deliver on the taste and palate.

Piwo czarne. Piana beżowa drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, dość trwała redukuje się do obrączki, dość słabo oblepia szkło. W aromacie paloność, kawowość, brązowy cukier. W smaku czekolada, paloność i płatki owsiane. Bardzo przyjemne odczucie, nisko wysycone, dobrze zbalansowane, subtelne, zdecydowanie nie wodniste, pijalne.
