This is an excellent stout. The flavor starts far more mellow than most stouts Ive 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 isnt. Its 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 Im concerned.

Goooood stout.. Kunne tenkt meg til litt mer tykkelse. Tror kanskje den inneholder litt lite havre, derav den tynne viskositeten. Litt lite holdbart skum også.. Kunne godt tenkt meg til fyldigere og mer holdbart skum.

This creamy aromatic full bodied stout is delicious. Recommend this on a cold wintery day. Suitable for substituting for some warm oatmeal. Great warm finish and oatmeal following. Tops.

Pours dark with medium, creamy head. Has a deep, smooth taste that goes right down. An exceptional stout in bottle and on tap.

Almost opaque, with a light brown head. Roasted, malty, cereal smell and flavor that both bear sweet hints of chocolate and nut. Smooth and full body with a perfect tad of bitterness. This is as good of an oatmeal stout as I have ever found, and I seek them out.

Aroma is dark chocolate with hints of malt. Pours an opaque, dark brown, daresay black with a rich, tan head. Tastes rich in dark chocolate, with light tones of coffee. Full bodied on the tongue, with light carbonation. Label states that it is a Gold Medal Winner and this stout deserves to brag about it. Excellent

This quite probably the best Oatmeal Stout in america, and a contender for best over all. Pleasant mix of fresh oats and roasted chocolate combine for a very pleasing smell. A decent head with excellent lacing in a 16oz pint glass. The taste is thick and savory, nutty sweetness blends in well to form an almost perfect combination, there is a hop presence but its mild enough the bitterness doesnt interfere.

The deep dark hue and rich tan head are impressive, and somewhere behind the mocha aroma I was surprised by an earthy roasted aroma of yeast and malt - almost a hint of Vegemite (for the Aussies out there). Its just sweet enough to carry the hint of hop bitterness perfectly. The full think body doesnt disappoint either.

Dguste avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Duvel 18cl. Temprature de dbut 7 8. Trs belle robe opaque de couleur bne surmonte dune mousse beige clair peu persistante; carbonatation moyenne. Nez trs sduisant avec des armes de caf, de pruneaux et de fruits noirs ainsi que des notes houblonnes. Le got atteint des sommets avec un assemblage de saveurs idalement ralis : touches chocolates et fruites parfaitement quilibres pour une palette riche et complexe. La finale est longue et savoureuse avec le retour du pruneau et du caf. Un stout dexception !!!
