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.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 6, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown, very thin mocha/tan head. The minimal head did leave some lacing. Nose is chocolate/caramel malts and touch of mocha. flavors, light roasted malts, oats, bitter sweet finish. Light touch of bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is a little bit thin and light. Very light carbonation. I bet this would do well on draft with Nitro. Overall a well put together everyday stout.

Maris (915) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2010
From 650ml bottle on 22/12/2010. Given that previous Anderson Valley beers have been amongst the very best Iíve had, I was expecting much more from this. Itís a decent stout but nothing special. Has a quite sharp roasted malt aroma with a some chocolate. In the mouth, itís quite sweet, with milk chocolate flavours up front, with a mild roasty bitterness at the end. The body is actually quite thin. Not in the same league as their IPAs or the ESB.

Bottle: Almost black, small loose tanned layer with a little lace; dryish roasty nose with a slight sweet dark-malty background; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, a light acidity included, light to medium bodied; slightly sweeter - and less roasty - malty finish. O.K. .....

CheersMate (1299) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - JUN 8, 2011
22 oz. bottle from the University QFC. Glad to be a Fremont resident now! It had a fluffy head, at first, but not itís dwindled down to a wispy, tan head thatís just sitting there. This has a black, opaque appearance, and it looks average. This is pretty straight-forward -- chocolate and roast, all the way. This beer has quite the delicate balance that seems to sway back-and-forth between roast and chocolate. While one seems to be losing, the other quickly gains ground. This has a nice, pungent, and sweet smelling aroma. 5.7% A.B.V.? I was planning on sleepiní really well tonight, but it looks like Iíll be tossing and turning. The texture is borderline fail, that is - the fucking things lacks a body. Oatmeal stout? Did you actually use oatmeal? Calling it one of the "thickest, riches, and most complex stouts on the market..." is a bit generous. Iím not trying to be too much of an ass, but Iím tired and cranky. Subtle roast flavor kicks in at first, and gives a nice overture to the taste buds. Iím getting a tingling sweet chocolate flavor on the back of the tongue. Rather too straight forward, and uninteresting. Quite a let down from a company that, quite honestly, has never really stood out to me. This is decent, but nothing more, and nothing less. Cheers, dudes.

mile (2744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle. Very dark brown, small to average and fully diminishing dark brown head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, roasted malt, faint coffee and chocolate. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, roasted malt, some oat and coffee, light caramel. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, roasted malt, some coffee and oat, faint chocolate. Bit one-dimensional and meek as oatmeal stouts tend to be.

quiznoaz (308) - Arizona, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle. Dark pour, though clear. Little head, though lingered around the edge. Light malty aroma. Thin mouthfeel, light flavor of dark malt with a light bitter finish. Doesnít meet the description above. Not bad, but not big either.
