...Or rather "Quick Note: Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout, Anderson Valley Brewing Company, Boonville, Mendocio County, California, USA". Damn good thing the beer is damn good with that much on the label.
Expresso foam head laying languidly over the blackest of ale. Dry licorice and minty hop. Below that there is malt - both roasted and rounded. The label calls this sweet stout but it is not. It is silken as the style requires and the oats provide. Soft water and a lingering nuttiness in the coffee finish. I imagine there is a place west of the Rockies where this is 2.99 a quart at corner stores. That would be a good place.
