12oz. Bottle: Sweet aroma of chocolate and roasted malts, and cream. Poured dark black with a big, rocky, but thin brown head that somewhat lasted. Good lacing is thin like the head. Opaque, even against a bright light. Flavor starts lightly sweet but finishes lightly bitter. Tastes of milk chocolate, roasted malts, cream, and oats. Finish is dry and long. Finish tastes of oats. Light to medium body. Thin. Soft carbonation. Overall I really liked the flavor of this beer, though it would benefit from more body.

Lowe1983 (1555) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Pours a black color with a darker brown color head. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of some hops. Flavor starts off with molasses and continues to the roasted malts and coffee and finishes with a slightly bitter and chocolate flavor. A very good stout.

reta beer, nice chocolatey, coffee smoked malt flavor. I like the spicy hop finish also. In general a very well balaced dark beer

Bottled. Good aroma of chocolate and licorice. Very dark body with a light brown head. Creamy mouth feel with a good deal of sweet malty flavor balanced with the right amount bitter hoppiness.

This was surprisingly very good. Dont know what I was expecting but this tasted very similar to sam smith which i think is a great barometer. It poured well jet black with a dark carmel head. Taste of bitter chocolate and charcol, thats a good thing. Overall a good oatmeal stout

(bottle) Deep black with rapidly fading tan head. Roast malt aroma. Sweetish roast malt flavor. Good but not outstanding.

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Pours a nice deep black but the head dissipates a little too quickly. Good flavor - some chocolate and roasted nuts are present - and the finish is about average for this category, nice and inoffensive.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2007
Black body with a small tan head. Not much to say about this one. Basic roasted malts flavours and some chocolate. Rather thin body for the style. Nothing wrong with it but I find it to be a slightly below average by-the-number stout. To me, Barneys oatmeal stout falls flat.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Courtesy of Decaturstevo at the Nashville Tasting. Pours black with a nice brown head. Faint aroma of dark roast with hints of vanilla. Initial flavor of purple grapes, that transitions to flavors of oats, nuts, and dark dry roasted malts. Perhaps a tad thin on the palate. Mild bitter finish

beer pours a deep black with light ruby tints. head is short-lived but leaves lots of tan lace. nose is smooth and chocolatey and rich. flavor is rich and roasty and very smooth - really well blended elements. good hop flavor in the aftertaste. a really good stout - very drinkable with a good level of roast.
