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.

Draft. Not a big stout by any means; sweet and dry on the palate, not a whole lot of body to fill the mouth. After initial poor, almost no head.

blipp (7895) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle. Poured black with a beautiful brown head. Smells primarily of chocolate and roasted malt with some notes of caramel and a hint of coffee. Medium/full mouthfeel. Taste pretty bland. Chocolate and roasted malt are most noticeable, with some notes of hops, caramel and coffee and a bit of a metallic aftertaste. A very underwhelming beer that could use something more. A stout should not be this easy to drink.

WeeObese (18) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2008
Bottle. Deep dark brown color, with a medium sized tan head. Great initial smell with roasted malt flavors and almost a slightly bourbon/oaked aged flavoring(?). Bourbon/oak flavoring vanishes, giving way to roasted chocolate malt aromas. Flavor is well balanced between roasted, chocolate and hop flavors and slight oat-like finish. The mouth feel is slightly lighter than I prefer for an oatmeal stout. Overall a very drinkable beer with good balance.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
It poured black in color with a thick head of fine light-brown bubbles. The aromas were sweet with scents of maple syrup and oats. The color and scents have me expecting a thicker, richer beer than reality brings. The palate was rather light and smokey with some bitter hops evident on the finish.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2008
12oz bottle. Nothing special. Poured a dark dark brown color some lighter brown head. Smell of usual stouts but lighter vanilla oatmeal and chocolate. Flavor reminds me of Captin’ Crunch! Seriously. Some hints of caramel, oats and malts. Dry finish. Nothing here that wowed me.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Pours black with large dark mahogany highlights and a 3 finger chunky tan head that has awesome retention. Aroma is dry dark chocolate, roast, dry nutty notes, dry oats, toasted grain, with hints of coffee and mollasses. Flavor is big on roast, fresh granola, bitterseet chocolate, some sweet bread spice, some char, toasty wood notes, some dark caramel, coffee and nutty notes. The finish is slightly bitter but seems more like char and dark roast coffee bitterness, kind of strange. Palate is thin pretty thin and slightly overcarbonated, which would be fine but it seems to clash with the suprisingly sweet flavor profile. Overall this is a decent stout but it seems a little confused on style.

Maddog (506) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2009
One of the original oatmeal stouts that I began to drink years and years ago. This stout is smooth, creamy and with a trace of roasted malt. You have to love oatmeal stouts, they are just so drinkable with generally a lot of complexity and flavor for a lighter bodied beer. Truly a session beer.

bblack99 (527) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Looks and smells like a stout, but that’s the high point of this beer. Pours a deep brown-black with a khaki head that quickly thins to nothing and barely leaves dots of lace. Aroma is lightly toasted oats and some raisin/plum. Flavor is a slightly odd mix of heavy roast, a little salt, and some smoke. The sweetness here is odd, and I can’t put my finger on it. Not exactly a traditional stout when it comes to mouthfeel or finish. Thin, but not quite watery. Finish is puckeringly sweet, which leads to an unpleasant end to an otherwise solid beer.

Pours black, tan head. Rich chocolaty roasty nose. Sweet, medium bodied flavour , with a light chocolatiness.
Finishes on a lovely coffee note. Pretty nice.
