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.

Pretty watery and unbalanced. Would have benefitted from a little sweetness. Tastes good together with a little bit of dark chocolate.

Can 0,35l. Pours a black/dark brown color with a light brown head and leaves a off white lacing. Aroma of oats and syrup. Taste of oats, malts, syrup and chocolate. Too watery. Soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from state line liquors MD. a bit too thin for a stout, and the flavor tasted weak to me. i was disappointed.

Actually think I taste a little oatmeal. Has a grainy like palate. Smooth, light and sweet, but more tart than most oatmeal stouts.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Very dark pour with a modest tan head. Thick, viscous mouthfeel with a light coffee aroma. Light coffee and chocolate flavors, nicely bitter but absent any malty or sweet backbone. Very light carbonation. Oddly bitter finish. Not my preferred style regardless, yet lacking in substance anyway. Would I drink again? no. too many other stouts with more going on if that was what I wanted.

Dark brown/black with a burnt brown head. Looks like it will be heavy. Somewhat muted aroma of chocolate, oatmeal and hazelnut. Tastes a little watery - dull flavours; malt and a little soapy. Way thinner than Iíd have liked - expected carbonation for style and doesnít coat mouth much. Pretty average.

Great pour and aroma...not thick and heavy like most dark beers...has a bite to it that makes it hard to drink...not one I enjoyed...

From a first glance this is a nice one. It both smells and tastes really nice. I had to give it a low overall impression though because literally I got a severe case of the runs after I drank it. It may look and taste great but after an hour in the bathroom I will never ever drink this again.

Over carbonated producing a HUGE head unlike other stouts. One dimension of flavor with a heavy emphasis on the hops; bitter more than sweet. Didnít have the thick creamy mouthfeel that most Oat or Sweet Stouts normally present. Wonít repeat.

On tap, maybe i got the wrong beer? To me, tasted like a milk stout and a poor one at that. Was bland, like a half-decent stout mixed with skim milk...or guinness with non-dairy creamer. Guess Iíll have to revisit someday.
