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.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

thick tan head nice lacing. Body is velvety and creamy with hints of oats, fudge, and espresso. very bland on the finish, i guess that would make it sessionable

Bottle. Tasting @ thewolf. Pours pitch black with a big creamy light brown well lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee and oat. Very good mouthfeel. The flavour has plenty of roasted malt, and chocolate, some coffee, oat and some bitterness. Dry roasty chocolate finish with a slight bitterness.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 30, 2007
Bottled, consumed on 11/30/07. Pours a deep brown mocha color. Not very carbonated; only a thin head formed and was gone fast. Toasted malts in nose along with chocolate aroma. Tingly, intense sensation on tongue upon drinking. Mellow roasted flavors carry over into flavor as mild coffee, along with nearly-hidden traces of red grapes. Odd this is called a sweet stout, as it is not especially sweet. Lingering astringent finish has slight bitterness. If it weren’t for the serious parching, it would be pretty laid back. Not sure I like this one too much.

ndubs360 (114) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Poured into a standard pint glass. Pitch black with a small brown head which dissipates rapidly. Aromas of vanilla and roasted malt aromas more pleasant than the taste. Taste os of burnt malt and smoke. overall, a wuality brew, but would prefer a different oatmeal stout.

dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2008
12oz. Black beer with a tan head. Aroma is mostly sweet malt and a bit of sour. Flavor is coffee, sour malt, and not a whole lot else. Fairly soft overall, a bit lacking in character, not my favorite oatmeal stout.

marcus (7554) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 30, 2008
This dark brown ale poured with almost no head. The flavor is not real intense, but is very balanced and tasty. It’s malty with chocolate notes and a long chalky finish.

Derek881 (1079) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - APR 13, 2008
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The aroma was heavy with malt, mostly chocolate character, with some lighter coffee and caramel notes, and a touch of hops. A thick, black color with a creamy, dark tan head that had average retention and size. Sweet, malty and chocolate/coffee-like flavor, with some bitterness for balance. The palate was a little bit too watery, with average carbonation, but some good fizz; a creamy, wetter mouthfeel. Definitely a very solid oatmeal stout, but falls short of some of my favorites.
