Short and sweet today as real life is calling.
Beer #220 is Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout by Anderson Valley Brewing Company from Boonville, California. This Oatmeal Stout has an ABV of 5.7%.
This was nice and black with a one finger width tan head. The nose was roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. The semi-sweet chocolate was up front in the taste with a nice compliment of roasted barley and a touch of vanilla. It had a nice mocha-esque aftertaste. The body was lighter than expected with low carbonation but there was a sort of crispness to it as well. It wasn’t as creamy as I was expecting.
Overall I enjoyed this and thought it was a nice beer. Cheers!
