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.

Bottle from Santa. Cap says it’s a solar powered brewery, and this immediately makes me worried that the beer won’t be good. While not necessarily a gimmick, but it reminds me of my usual dislike of organic beer. Deep, rich brown color with some maroon highlights towards the edges. A small khaki head tops this beer. It remained small even after a fairly aggressive pour. Aroma of baking chocolate, slight cherry skin, some oats and grains, and a bit of coffee beans. Taste is way different, and just lacking. Light chocolate, weak coffee with cream added, and an out of place hop bite. Super thin and watery body. This looks and smells nice, but the taste and body of it are downright awful.

This stout has no palate at all. Drinks like water. Small hints of oatmeal, chocolate and coffee, but never mesmerising. Boring stout.

Bottle. Black with shades of brown. Persistent brown foam. Mouthfeel is medium body, chocolate and roasted malts. Slight taste of oats and a touch of caramel, watery palate. Is at its best drinking it slowly, good beer but it seems that something is missing.

Black pour with a quick dissipating lace. Syrup aroma. Smoky maly flavour. Bitter roasted liquorice finish.

Bottled at Frape. Very dark reddish black with small tan head. No nose. Hardly any aroma very weak notes of sweet malts and coffee. Flavour is roasted malts, coffee and some intense hops in finish and aftertaste. Very thin for its kind.

Has a very dark brown color and a roasted smell. Taste is also roasted with a mildly bitter finish. Overall I do not like stouts too much, but this one was not half bad.

Bludgeoned with spices, this oatmeal stout is surprisingly thin and absent of positive complexity. For the dark colorization, this ale, provided by Anderson Valley, is sorely disappointing in richness. The mouthfeel of such a boisterious stout style should not be vexed by too much carbonation, but here, with the barney flats offering, you feel like you’re nursing a soda pop.

Quevillon (2511) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
12 oz can purchased at The Craft Beer Outlet in Philly on June 20, 2013. Black, small head. Sweet aroma of oats with a little raw barley. Taste dry oats, some notes of green grass, not a good bitterness. It started well but the taste was ended badly!

notalush (4872) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2003
Dark tan, with a large head that vanishes quickly and completely, leaving a beer that looks like flat Coke. Aroma of coffee, chocolate malt. Flavor is overly bitter for my taste, and for the style as well. Thin-bodied, lacking any significant malt presence. Finish is mostly bitter and not much else. A pretty bad beer, actually.
