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.

Very serious stout, great dark coffee appearance. Yet, attacks the palate with no mercy. Not for the faint of palate.

Thin grey head, aroma is very interesting: roast, raisins and coffee. Sweetish flavour, roasted coffee. Full bodied, a very good stout.

Ok. Had a good flavor for an oatmeal stout. Not obnoxiously smooth like Sam smith. Subtle coffee and chocolate. Strong fruit. Not a bad brew but not a favorite.

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?

Nice stout with a two finger head, rich, cacao coffee like flavor, dark, roasted malts, some soya hints....no detectable bitterness, smooth, very enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 pours a "can’t even see through it" black with a dark tan head. smells of coffee. Taste coffee/ chocolate like but without being overpowering. Has a bitter side to it but definitely sweet. I ate it with pancakes/ maple syrup and it was great!

Pours a deep dark brown boardering black with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate and sweet roasted malts. Heavy roasted malt taste with a sweet and creamy finish.

didn’t expect that... it’s really dry, especially for an oatmeal stout! a bit of roasty feel gives a good impression, but I would really like it to be smooth and oily, with a medium-to-full body and nice sweetness, whereas it’s rather thin.. it’s not bad though, just not as good as I thought it would be. bread, chocolate, black, minimal head, tan foam, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, average carbonation,

In the immortal words of Sesame Street, "One of these kids is not like the other, one of thes kids is not the same." I thoroughly did not enjoy this beer. It had a great deep dark color and rich caramel-colored head, but that was as good as it got. Each sip conveyed strong coffee overtones and each one tasted as if the coffee beans were badly burnt... by the surface of the sun. For an oatmeal stout and a sweet stout, I was expecting some subtle hints of sweetness. The ’subtle hints’, however, turned out to be sour punches of bitterness that lingered to an aftertaste as refreshing as an ashtray. A slightly bitter ashtray. On a final note, the previous reviewer described this beer’s "tapestry of flavor", and I can entirely relate because it certainly tasted no better than an area rug that hasn’t been vacuumed in a while.

Nutty, creamy, chocolate body. Oat flavor isn’t too far in the front as to overwhelm, but it’s there. Dry, but this is still more Cali than UK.
