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.

I have never tasted a better beer, let alone a better stout. Thick clean tasting with a good head. The only possible way to get a better beer (if you like stouts) than this is to go there in person to Booneville, CA and have one from a keg....Bottom Line: If you love stout beer - you will love this. I would also recomend this beer for someone who is just starting to enjoy different kinds of beers. I gave one of these to my girlfriend who is 23 and "doesn’t like beer" and she loved it! BTW anderson valley brewery has won many awards including "top 10 brewerys in the US" and this beer (Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout) has won numerous gold / silver bronze medals world wide against WORLD CLASS stouts. It truly is one of the best stouts in the world. And its my favorite!

From a first glance this is a nice one. It both smells and tastes really nice. I had to give it a low overall impression though because literally I got a severe case of the runs after I drank it. It may look and taste great but after an hour in the bathroom I will never ever drink this again.

Smooth but heavy with a slightly bitter hoppy taste. Nice surprise because I have never tried one from this brewer before.

This creamy aromatic full bodied stout is delicious. Recommend this on a cold wintery day. Suitable for substituting for some warm oatmeal. Great warm finish and oatmeal following. Tops.

aroma is a somewhat subdued. a bit malty. dark pour with nice dark tan head. dissipated quickly. tastes chocolatey with caramel and bittersweet highlights. fills your mouth like a good piece of chocolate melting on you tongue. definitely a huge value vs. price beer.

No skunk in aroma. Appearance is pure black like any decent stout. Draw is smooth with a heavy hint of smoke from the malts. Finish is clean and smooth. Overall, beats any Guinness I have ever had. Best stout I have tried thus far.

Hands down one of the most original oatmeal stout?s I?ve ever layed my lips on. New personal standard.
