What’s Brewin’ – Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout

Dark and carmel-y, this delicious brew from Anderson Valley Brewing Company in Boonville, CA delivers scents of expresso, dark cherries and rich toffee. It is a boon – pun intended – for beer drinkers who love dark stouts and savoring deep flavors. The beer, with a creamy mouth feel, has 5.8% alcohol and is a deep ebony color with a mahogany tinted head. This beer has won lots of acclaim and  is redolent of chocolate malt and oats.

The brewery has a long history, having first opened in 1987. Barney Flats is available on draft and in 12 and 22 oz. bottles, year-round. We were Guinness drinkers for a long time and still tend to order dark beers first. We were introduced to it recently at La Brasa in Somerville, MA and were delighted to discover a new favorite.
