Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout

Fantastic blend of a surprisingly light mouthfeel and tons of flavor for Anderson Valley Brewing Company's Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout. The name is heavier than the beer! Great roasted oatmeal and dark chocolate flavor, good color, but unexpectedly light. There's a hint of spicy hops and a long, dry, roasted finish.

Very good example of the style. You won't be overwhelmed with oats, but they're certainly there. Delightful round, balanced flavor.

Grade: B
