COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout consistently beats out international stouts in blind tastings and competitions. This intensely black ale carries strong hints of espresso and chocolate. The oatmeal contributes body and ensures a long-lasting mocha-coloured head. If you like stout, you will love St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout.

#800 Pours black with a nice tannish head composed of creamy bubbles. The lace is rocking. This is a good looking beer. Wow. The nose is complex and wonderful. A rush of malts overwhelm you with chocolate, coffee, bitter hops, mocha, oatmeal and raisins. Smoke shows itself both in the aroma and flavor. The chocolate and roast malts are the biggest contributor to the flavor. Coffee underlies hanging out with the bitter hops. There is hints of soy amongst it. Mocha as well. The palate is silky, full bodied and a finish of smokey chocolate and bitter coffee. Very nice beer. Thanks David!

It had an EXTREMELY large head. Black color and very muddy looking. Its taste was chocolate and coffee not my favourite things to mix, but overall good beer til the last drop.

Thick black pour. HUGE rocky tan head. Nose is bitter chocolate malt with some coffee. Wonderful creamy mouthfeel. Perfect bitterness in the finish. As good as it’s ranking.

Poured a beautiful brown head. A bit chocolatey in the nose, but tasted a bit bitter and watery. Still a very good stout.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2004 Dark brown opaque w/ a small tan head. Chocolate malt aroma w/ hints of roastiness and caramel. That’s about it. Roast become stronger as it warms. Chocolate flavor and bitterness from hops, balanced to bitter, light caramel and a light hop flavor. Harshly astringent IMHO, med. body and low carbonation. Smooths out a bit with age.

This beer is black like feces in the dark. Thankfully, its taste is more pleasant. No "Boreale Noire" though. :/

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2004 think and creamy - everything a good stout should be. this stout is pretty much black, as expected, with a nice tan head.

Bottle pours a dense black, very thick, frothish tan colored head, with attractive lacing.   Aroma of burnt malts, hops, and slight coffee on the nose.   Forwardly hoppy, bitter, with burnt malts, coffee and bittersweet chocolate.   The coffee and bittersweet chocolate follow through to the finish.   Good flavor, but body and palate aren’t as thick and heavy as I was hoping.   It has a nice malty character tho.   Finishes malty, with a nice hop bitterness, as well as a slightly dry unsweetened chocolatey flavor.   Not my favorite stout, but good nonetheless.   Thanks goes out to Rastacouere for the trade!

At long last, my Torontonian friend brought me a six pack of this wonderful beer. I was able to get over my silly preference for hoppy stouts enough to enjoy the black patent malt character of this near-perfect stout. Silky texture and incredible malt character. Terribly fine, traditional stout.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 Pitch black body color with a thick, tan head that looks like pudding. Smell is delicious, however, subdued. Roasted notes along with chocolate, milk, coffee and toffee. Very easy drinking and tasty, feels silky in the mouth. Roasted and sweet flavors blend nicely into one hell of a beer. Sampled off tap in Toronto, CAN.
