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.

Ok. Had a good flavor for an oatmeal stout. Not obnoxiously smooth like Sam smith. Subtle coffee and chocolate. Strong fruit. Not a bad brew but not a favorite.

bottle. Near black with one finger head. Solid oatmeal stout. Light cocoa, smooth oaty nature. It’s a very good representation of the style, and yet I’m kind of bored at the same time. Probably says more about me than the beer.

Dark brown color with small brown head. Weak burnt malt aroma with hints of chocolate. Dry and light chocolate aroma in aftertaste.

0.33l bottle. Dark brown color with small brown head. Aroma of malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste is bitter and little sweet.

Bottle at home. The foam disappears very quickly. Almost black color. Didn’t liked this one very much.

Bit more cocoa flakes than usual, roast, low bod - fairly light and thin but I reckon that’s par for the course for an OS, bread in the aroma, although felt rather lightly. Unobtrusive, but solid

2015 BJCP Category: 16B Oatmeal Stout

AROMA: Moderately strong fruity aroma (e.g. raisins, red fruits). Moderately coffee & vanilla presence. Faint diacetyl; possible oxidation - but these characteristics are not distracting. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Seemingly opaque black with clear garnet highlights. Large tan frothy foam mostly dissipates. 2/3

FLAVOR: Mild palette initially. Subdued notes of fruit. Becomes quite bitter at the apex with coffee and roasted malt flavor. Finishes rather sweet with genuine oatmeal taste. Leaves a tobacco/roasted coffee aftertaste. Minor presence of oxidation. No distinctive hop flavor or bitterness. 12/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation. Very smooth and comfortable, but feels slightly watery. Seems much more sessionable strength than 5.8% ABV. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: A valiant effort for the style, but comes up a bit short. It is at least satisfactory. 6/10

Piana bardzo wysoka, drobna, beżowa. Zapach słodki, waniliowy, rodzynki, susoszna śliwka, lekko kwaskowaty. W smaku gładkie, pełne, gęste. Lekko kwaskowate od słodów palonych. Trochę wanilli. Goryczka nieduża ale wyczuwalna. Bardzo dobrze ułożone.

colui72 (1053) - HONG KONG - JUN 25, 2017
Pours black with very low carbonation, small tan head that vanished after 10 seconds. No lacing. Aroma of roasted barley and red wine (!). Tastes well roasted barley, oats, slightly tart, dark fruits, medium bitter towards the finish. Light body, thin feel, flat, long finish. An average stouts, tastes actually good but it’s too thin and watery.

Fisler (565) - Bamberg, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2017
Dunkel, wenig Schaum. In der Nase Röstaroma. Im Trunk Kaffee, cremig, süß, süffig. Hinten nur etwas bitter. Schönes Sommerstout.

olenickj (114) - Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Bottle. Aroma: caramel, chocolate, coffee, toast, dough, vanilla. App: black, minimal tan head. Taste: surprisingly sweet, almost sour in its bite, a bit of coffee and chocolate. Palate: medium-full feel, fairly long finish. Overall: A bit odd for a stout, good, but different.
