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.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Beautiful beer, nice and black with a great brown head that was very frothy but short lived. The aroma was decent but weak and slightly vinegary. Good taste, nice smooth blend of chocolate and carmel. Only slight hints of coffee, didnt over do that aspect the way many stouts do. It was a little thin and a tad sour. A fairly decent stout, but nothing too special.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2002
A decent stout, with a mild burnt taste and bitterness which is well balanced. Agreed it could have been a little thicker. Acceptable.

beerguy101 (5359) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 16, 2002
Dark black color, medium head. Slight caramel aroma. Deeply roasted malts, slight chocolate and coffee flavor, not very oaty. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Lighter bodied Oatmeal Stout. Very drinkable.

Nuffield (4080) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 A good all-arounder in the world of stouts, but I was let down by what to me was a slightly light/thin body. Good flavor profile, with a chocolate/burnt bitterness, although there is that typical West Coast hop edge that makes this kind of beer a little bit suspect. Drier than I expected. The head this produces is decent, but not creamy, and it fully dissipates. Good oil black color. An honors graduate, to be sure, but among too many good students in its class to be the valedictorian.

muzzlehatch (4773) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2003
Dark, rich thick pour; head is large, medium-brown, fizzy and quick-dying. Big, beautiful sweet chocolaty nose, good medium-sweet chocolate/oaty flavor with a powerful robust finish. I happen to like my oatmeals sweeter, not sure if this is the right balance for me, but its very well made and enjoyable. Can't believe its taken me this long to get to this brewer.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2003
Almost light-sucking black with a tan head that vanishes quickly. Nose of coffee and malt. Flavor of bitter coffee, floral hops, malt, toffee, and oatmeal, with a bitter finish. Glad to see that I am not the only one who thought of Sam Smith's.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2003
A deep brown/black with a tan medium head that quickly dissapated. A sweetish aroma with some chocolate and coffee that is very faint. Flavors of coffee and vanilla. Full body with a dry finish.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Rich and creamy head full of milk, oatmeal and vanilla. Big vanilla taste, with a somewhat thin mouth feel. Tastes like a cold mocha. Suprisingly light on the palate.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - AUG 14, 2003
had a nice roasted/sweet aroma too it, and a nice dark brown color too it. The flavor was not impressive it was bitter and dry. Tasted a lot like a coffee, its bittersweet finish was barely recognizable.
