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. 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.

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 (2509) - 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!

Ernest (6222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (not opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, rancid nuts), with notes of plaster/sheetrock. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean, husky. Medium body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Blech. Man, these canned AV brews have sucked pretty hard, and this one is just the same. Nasty stale aroma and a dirty aftertaste. Complete and utter garbage.

notalush (4859) - 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.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Very, very dark brown. Raw-edged voluminous bubbles compose the rather wan head. Aroma of wet dog, vanilla milk shake, mild chocolate and a dank graininess. These flavors were certainly present, but the aroma exudes surprisingly little. Flavor is a raw, uncut yeastiness with a fair bit of sourish character. Roasty and smoky, and although it may contain oatmeal, this is not a sweet stout by any means. Powerful unrefined bitterness at the end. Astringent but memorable palate. I just don't think it's that special.
