Hey everyone. The original review’s on the Journal-Advocate website, so check it out there. Seriously, the rest of this post will make a lot more sense. But the gist of it is that I bought the Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout as a random selection of a “mix six-pack,” had no expectations, and was blown away. One of the best stouts (of any kind) I’ve had all year.
But in one part of the post, I note that the can seems to have a “half bear/half elk beast” on the front. I couldn’t find a name for it. It seems the brewers heard my call, because they emailed me to clarify that the beast was, in fact, a “beer” (bear + deer). Its name is Barkley, and it’s “one of the last remaining Legendary Boonville Beers.”
So now you know.
