This is an excellent stout. The flavor starts far more mellow than most stouts I’ve had. This smoothness gives way to a smoky, roasted grain bitterness that you would expect in a good stout. Where some stouts can be heavy-handed, syrupy thick, and a bit much to drink, Barney Flats isn’t. It’s got a solid but not syrupy mouthfeel. The flavor has elements of chocolate, coffee, and malt with a properly-balanced hops bitterness. One of the best stouts on the market as far as I’m concerned.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a very dark brown-black with barely visible garnet highlights and a high, very tight, fine-grained light brown head. Nose is red wine, dried fruit, black tea, and baking chocolate. Rich and fruity up front on the tongue, then with a dark chocolate/coffee/raisin note kicking in on the mid-palate; a minty herbal note is also present, and the dryness increases all the way through. Finish is long, dry, herbal/piney, and smoky. Extremely good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis Utrecht. Black pour with nice creamy off-white foam. Aroma is really vanilla forward, sweet dark malts, light licorice, herbal notes, oatmeal, very light roast. Taste is wicked smooth, nice sweet molasses touch, lots of vanilla on the finish, very low bitterness. Palate is smooth and creamy, easy drinking (med bodied).

Bottle pour... TJs. Very nice pour, dark reddish brown, foamy head dissipates. Aroma is hardly inspiring. First sip a bit less smooth than most stouts, bubbly. Clean palate, easy drinking. Decent coaster.

Transfer from BA review on 8-31-12-
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance –Served a deep brown nearly black beer with a one finger tan head. The head faded over time to give a good level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma overall, was rather light but pleasant. It was a mix of some roasted malt as well as a light bit of chocolate and dark fruit sweetness.
Taste – The taste began of a more dry roasted malt flavor with a chocolate and roasted coffee flavor greeting the tongue. These flavors are quickly meet by some caramel sweetness and a bit of dark fruit. As the taste advances further, it sweetens even more with some flavors of vanilla and cream coming in at the end. Overall it leaves a very satisfyingly sweet yet roasty flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side for an oatmeal stout of its strength with a carbonation level that is slightly higher then normal.
Overall – Other than the weakness in the feel of the brew it was very good. It had a wonderful taste profile and a great appearance. Easy to drink and very tasty.

I chose this juicy beer to combine my celebration for the entrance in my new house, in Amsterdam. As I refered it is enough juicy or floral. Maube a special coffe in its taste. A bit caramel too.
