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.

Pours solid black with a brown head that starts off thumbs width in thickness and dwindles down from there, leaving a slight head on around the edges and in batches across the rest of the surface. A rich and sweet oaty aroma from the malts partnered with a supporting chocolate. Absolutely beautiful. Overall, I’d say this falls into the sweeter side of oatmeal stouts. Starts off sweet with some cocoa and coffee flavor, middle you get the characteristic oaty flavor, and finishes off with a great roastiness. A wonderful moutfeel to this; velvet, creamy, and medium bodied. Simply a great oatmeal stout, my biggest complaint is that it isn’t more readily available here in Denver. This should be a staple in every liquor store.

This beer introduced me into the wonderful world of Oatmeal stouts. This beer is velvety and dark. Pours thick and smooth with a caramel colored and scented head that lasts a decent amount. The rich coffee, caramel, toffee and slight vanilla aromas meet a delicious smooth taste that seems to coat in inside of your mouth. Easy drink and great introduction into O.S.’s and stout in general for the dark beer weary.

Love this beer overall. Pours a deep dark brown with a nice frothy head. Roasty aroma of coffee, chocolate, nutty caramel and creamy malt that all carry over into the smooth creamy taste.

This is a great beer. Silky smooth with a oatmeal flavor. This is an easy drinking beer. Definitely worth a try.

When it comes to darker, richer beer, I love a good oatmeal stout and this is one of the finest. From the moment I poured the bottle into my glass I knew I was in love. Great aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel malt. Nice and thick with a dark brownish almost black color and a thin white head that is quickly gone. Thick and heavy mouth feel that matches the appearance. Taste is mocha, coffee, chocolate, caramel and maybe some chestnut or something like that. Very subtle hops. This is one of my new favorite stouts and beers period. Will get this one again very soon.

An excellent oatmeal stout. Extra point for can instead of bottle. Someday we will all wonder why all beer was not canned. And for those of you that like drinking out of a bottle; shame on you. Also extra point for awesomeness of their brewery and its practices. Sometimes I wish I lived in the Anderson Valley.

Pours coffee black, with roasted coffee, mocha, raisinette aroma, featuring sweet full-bodied malt-forward aroma and palate, finishing with a lively carbonation and subtle hop bite. This is a very nice oatmeal stout!

Love this oatmeal stout, roasty and smooth. This beer will get you out of the bed in the morning. Nice and dark with a short head.

Full-bodied and black as night with the taste of licorice, chocolate and freshly roasted coffee. Wonderfully balanced!
