COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
McNEILLS OATMEAL STOUT is hand-made from the choicest English Harrington barley malts and fresh flower hops. The addition of oatmeal to the grist contributes to the rich, velvet like quality of this superior stout. Fully aged and never filtered, this traditional bottle conditioned stout may contain a small amout of sediment and must be kept refrigerated.

hopdog (8958) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Sampled from 22oz bottle provided by egajdzis. Poured a dark black with red edges and a very small sized off white head. Aromas of oatmeal, chocolate and roasted malts. For a lack of description, it pretty much had an overall sweet smell to it. Tastes of oatmeal, roast, light coffee and anise. Thinner body.

Sammy (8680) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2008
Initial reaction was; what happened to the bottle? No bubbles on top of the liquid, it even appeared to be missing some fluid. Dark, almost no carbonation present. The pour-was this a cask beer? The taste-a cask RIS and a magnificent one based on that with understated natural carbonation and tasty coffee-chocolate bittersweetness. A delight of a beer

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle shared at the Richmond Industry Gathering. Gusher. Pours a dark brown color with a huge brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of oats, cherries and roasted malts. The taste is roasted malts, oats, nuts and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied, chewy texture. Seems a little off, which is a shame as it’s otherwise an excellent beer.

JoeMcPhee (8497) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
22 oz bottle. I bought this because at 3 bucks it was a steal. I’ve had a lot of problems with McNeills stuff in the past, but this beer gives me some confidence that they’re getting it sorted out. Dark black beer with a thick sticky deep tan head. Lovely aroma of coffee/espresso and a bit of cocoa. A soft tartness and a light roastiness as well. Perhaps a touch of berries, but it is mostly firm dark malts, milk chocolate, and a bit of roast. Sweet and fairly full-bodied with a light silkiness on the palate. Pretty nice brew really.

jtclockwork (8491) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose/taste of roast chocolate malt, flaked oats, flaked barley and hints of vanilla. Lots of up front roast on the nose. Taste has some burnt barley and malt in the forefront. Medium body.

DocLock (7876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Wow, just wow. The pour is ebony with 1-finger brown head. The beer looks oily and almost shiny like a crow. The aroma is awesome, big roasty malt, big chocoff, some licorice, hazelnut, and anise. Dense palate, very creamy and smooth, with tons of flavors including chocoff, roasty dark malt, hazelnut, and slight anise. This one is outstanding, and well worth a 5.0 score.
