Poured into a pint glass.
A. Pours an opaque black with a thick two fingered head. The head is a fluffy soapy light brown that leaves lots of lace.
S. The aroma of rosted malts and earthy hops. A bit of chocolate and nuts.
T. Wow, what a robust tasting Stout. A strong flavour of roasted malts up front. Sweeet with an earthy hop bitterness. Creamy with chocolate notes.
M. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. A little bitter on the tounge with a medium body.
D. This is a robust Stout. Lots of flavour and a good mouthfeel.

Pours a rich, dark brown, with an appetizing light brown head. Smells of sweet, oaty, malts, figs, and a little alcohol--not too aromatic. Taste is semi-sweet buttery malts, with an increasing chocolatey roastiness, and a slightly bitter finish. Very smooth. A good session stout!

~ 12 oz bottle

It pours jet black with a small creamy head.

In the aroma department, roasted malt, oats, and coffee, all make an appearance.

The taste is quite sweet with a faint bitterness towards the end.

Medium-bodied and easy to drink.

Barney Flat's is an enjoyable Oatmeal Stout. It's not overly complex, but sometimes that's a good thing. ~

Thanks to my BA Buddy cdkrenz for another generous offering.

A - Poured pitch black...no light was getting through this bad mother! Topped off with a tan foamy two finger head that retained really well for the first couple minutes, leaving somewhat generous lacing down the inside of the glass.

S - Roasted malts and bitter chocolate dominate. Smells sweet overall.

T & M - Full bodied brew with a big malty backbone. Bitter dark chocolate with a bit of a hoppy backbite. Smooth and creamy...finishes well.

D - This is a big beer with a low ABV. Highly drinkable...I'm glad I had the opportunity to try this one!

Great stout! Beer poured opaque with a brown head, which didn't hold long. Creamy, thick mouthfeel with tastes of espresso and bittersweet chocolate. Great dessert beer, probably too rich for many more than one. If you like stouts, you will not be disappointed with this one!
