COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

One of the few oatmeal stouts where you can really taste oatmeal mixed with mild coffee and chocolate flavors. Very good.

NIce very dark brown short lived head. Almost black in color. Nice aromas of coffee, earthiness, and chocolate. The carbonation in this beer is done well. Nice smooth, almost silky mouthfeel. Nice flavors as well. Flavors of coffee, soil like earthiness, oatmeal of course, and the perfect touch of hoppiness. I really like this oatmeal stout.

Pours solid black with a brown head that starts off thumbs width in thickness and dwindles down from there, leaving a slight head on around the edges and in batches across the rest of the surface. A rich and sweet oaty aroma from the malts partnered with a supporting chocolate. Absolutely beautiful. Overall, I’d say this falls into the sweeter side of oatmeal stouts. Starts off sweet with some cocoa and coffee flavor, middle you get the characteristic oaty flavor, and finishes off with a great roastiness. A wonderful moutfeel to this; velvet, creamy, and medium bodied. Simply a great oatmeal stout, my biggest complaint is that it isn’t more readily available here in Denver. This should be a staple in every liquor store.

Black color, almost no light can pass through, head is half a finger and is colored dark brown; For aroma, chocolate, mocha, maple syrup, and alcohol stings; Taste is hints of coffee, raising, grapes and other dark fruits with a bitter sweet aftertaste; somewhat medium body, creamy oily on the palate

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. I like the fact it was in a can.. Kind of unique for a stout. Beige/white head, quickly disappearing, super thick and dark body; No chance of transparency. Not much on the aroma side of things. Great taste, not overpowering, but dark malts, that nice "oatmeal" thickness to it. Slightly dark chocolate taste as well. Everything is blended fairly well & not overpowered in one department over another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great smoky taste, but some hint of sour or bitter that keeps me from rating it stellar. Would drink again, but not over a left hand milk stout.

on tap, this is one of my very favorite stouts. i also enjoy the oatmeal in my home brew. the thick-creamy texture that the oats give, for me, just cant be beat. the chocolate is not overdone in this brew ,as is so common in most stouts, for my taste.

Šimtą kartų matytas žurnaluose ir pagaliau jis mano rankose! Bet kai daug tikiesi gręsia nusivylimas... 4/4/4/4/4=20. Visgi gal ekologiškas alus kažko stokoja... Kam kamštelio reik į kolekciją?

Moonless midnight color. Aroma subltle and pleasant. Flavour is fairly roasted and sweetish, with a smooth finish. A good stout.
