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.

Had as 22 ounce. Solid, nothing origonal. Earthy, chocolate, maybe a bit of coffee. Decent brew, Id buy it again.

Apperance aint bad...but otherwise, a run of the mill stout. Not much going on and pretty thin. A nice steppin stone to the bigger beers!

Bottle. Pours black, medium tan head. Hmmmm.....interesting aroma, some bitter chocolate and metallic and tangy. Same tangyness as some of their other beers. Taste is smoke, burnt coffee, bitter chocolate. Thin and silky. A little watery in the finish, slight bitterness and smoke. Not one of my favs.

650 mL bottle. Aroma of choclate and oats. Taste of chocolate, oats, and molasses, which transitions to a smokey roastiness and finishes bitter-sweet and semi-dry. Bottle cap said, "You ARE Worthy!" Humble Bastards.

Peripherals: Ruby brown and glowing in the glass with a large, beautiful fluffy tan head. Smells sweet and buttery, but weak. First cut: Thin, with a burst of sour grape flavor in the middle. Watery texture. Deeper: Tries to get dry on the end, but doesnt really succeed, having to overcome the impression of wateriness; however, there is a vaguely roasty flavor on the end. Its interesting, not necessarily like other oatmeal stouts Ive had (lacks that mustly oatsy quality). Sampled at a gathering of TN Ratebeerians a couple months ago; thanks to whoever brought it (didnt write down who).

This could make a great baseline or starter beer for someone looking to explore sweet stouts. Not a bad session beer either it is pretty easy drinking. Thin body, slight head. Smells of raosted malts, coffee & oates. Flavors are similar with some sweetness and chocolatey malts. Overall its a tasty, easy to find above average stout.

cazort (561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2007
(Bottle) Aroma sweet, not particularly strong, like mildly roasted oats. Flavour, sweet, too much so. Fairly heavy and thick, and very flat. I do not notice the "dry finish" that other reviewers mention--to me, this lacks the dry bitterness that is essential in this type of beer. Although there werent many strongly objectionable qualities, overall I thought that this was a weak, bland beer was far from impressive.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 18, 2007
Bomber - Smooth pour into a goblet, dark mohogany and maroon colors around the edges, with a near-black center. Disappointing head that remained as a thin film on the edges for most of sipping. Aroma of smokey malts, light roastiness, gingerbread and chocolates. Its says oatmeal stout, I got the rolled oats in the flavor, but to me it was pretty subtle. Pretty sweet and dry finish with low alcohol. Not bad at all, worth a try, but I prefer the Imperials

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2007
12 oz Bottle-Poured black w/a moderate off white head. Roasted malt aroma. Kind of a standard Stout-roasted malt, coffee, licorice, some chocolate, did have a little bit of a smoked overtone to it but nothing major. Kind of light & thin, Had some carbination; Dry finish. Nothing special, solid brew.
