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.

Nice burnt flavor, but the alcohol is a little too apparent for my tastes. Try the Samuel Smiths.

kathouse (992) - Nevada, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Aroma is hoppy with some oats and malt hiding in the background. Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Beer has good carbonation, but a thin mouthfeel. Odd for an oatmeal stout. Strong bitterness that stays well after the beer is gone. Some roasted notes with definite oatmeal taste. Light chocolate. Don't know what it is, but this beer doesn't leave a lasting impression.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2004
Nice stout coloration, including a nice darker creamy head which ran off quickly. Aroms is a little bit hidden. Flavor is a nice rounded malt character, with a decent crispness at one end and the other a good grain feel to it. Not a bad stount, but lacking in the sweetness dept.

rickgordon (3843) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Dark brown. Cocoa nose, with a touch of menthol. Creamy milky mouthfeel. Not very roasty. Medium bitter. Long finish. Nice hops presence, considering the style.

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Muddy brown body below an average tan head. Nice vanilla, chocolate, mocha and malt aroma. Good hop balance, with a bit of hop aftertaste. Another qulity brew from a California Micro Staple.

iím almost at a loss on how to rate this beer..tastes much more like a hoppy APA than a stout...weird indeed. i dont want to hurt itís rating, but the coffee chocolate flavors are masked by a big hoppy flavor...in addition, iíve noticed that as it warms, it begins to take on more characteristics of a stout

crdic (105) - California, USA - JUN 29, 2002
Black as night, with a thick, dense, dark tan head. Its aroma is a little weak, with alcohol showing through; but its flavor is stronger, with oatmeal and bitter hops to cover up the alcohol. The aftertaste has a weak suggestion of espresso. This is an okay brew, but not a first-rate stout by any means.

Dark and smooth. Initally reminded me of Samual Smith Oatmeal Stout but not as creamy smooth tasting and also a bit more alcohol taste.

Crit (3334) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2010 Black with quick dissipating brown head. Smooth sweet oatmeal flavor. Ok, but lacking in body and flavor
