Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout poured in to the glass not quite black in color, call it a dark brown. The head was camel in color and would not look out of place on a rootbeer float, fluffy, but firm. The lacing began thick and heavy, leaving a generous coating on the glass.
The smell is toasty with roasted malts, chocolate, dark roasted coffee beans, a bit of grassiness and hint of earthiness.
The taste follows the scent fairly well with the chocolate coming across more as unsweetened cocoa and the addition of hop bittering in the middle and a nicely dry finish.
The flavors balance very well on a medium-heavy body with a lighter carbonation giving it a creamy and smooth mouthfeel.
I found this to be very well crafted. There is nothing over the top here and that may be another of its strengths.

This is my first time trying anything from Anderson Valley. If this is typical of their other products I will have to make more of an effort to track down their other offerings.
