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.

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.

AirForceHops (5770) - 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 (1321) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2010
From 650ml bottle on 22/12/2010. Given that previous Anderson Valley beers have been amongst the very best I’ve had, I was expecting much more from this. It’s a decent stout but nothing special. Has a quite sharp roasted malt aroma with a some chocolate. In the mouth, it’s 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.
