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.

12.19.04 12oz bottle thanks to my secret santa in Hamilton, ON. Deep and almost black beer looks thick and soft on the pour. The head is thick and sticky tan and lasts and laces all over the place. The aromas are incredible coffee and cream notes with hazelnut syrup that remind me of my morning coffee at 7-11. I love my morning coffee. The flavor is almost all coffee with coffee notes and coffee touches. Thereís also some more hazelnut, truffle oil, chocolate coated coffee bean. The brew has just the right amount of bitterness, just the right amount of sweetness, creamy body...damn, this is some good stuff! Easily the best Oatmeal stout Iíve had. Thanks for sending two, Santa!!

This beer comes courtesy of my not so secret santa phil in Quebec...ive long awaited trying this beer, so this was an excellent treat. This beer pours a dark brown to almost black color with a bulbous menagerie of orange, tan and purple dancing in the thick head. Good lacing throughout, and a remaining cream layer left after the head wafted away. The aroma is sweet and malty, chocolatey, coffee, overall very light and sweet even as it warmed. The body is medium to slightly coating thick, with active carbonation. Thick tongue coating chocolate, malt, toffee, and coffee. You can nearly TASTE the caffeine in this beer. I was nearly asleep before I opened this beer, but now Iím nearly awake. Roasty coffee bean finish, fairly wet though for a stout. Wonderfully crafted sweet stout. Mid sip bitterness, heavy roasted caramel chocolate toffeeness throughout. Nearly intoxicating flavor.. i NEED a case of this on hand!

Bottle from Beerhugger. Really nice stout!!! Deep black in color. Brown head fades down to ring the edge of the glass. Good lacing. Aroma is bittersweet, lots of deeply roasted malts involved. Bits of chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied. Very chocolatey and coffee in flavor. Smooth and rich mouthfeel. Very nicely done.

DerWeg (1576) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2010 This one kicks you in the taste buds - lots of demanding dark malty flavor, notes of unsweetened cocoa and Sumatra coffee (elegant shaped flavour bitter not harsh). A bit light body, slight foamy head. A balancing sweetness as the glass warms. Intense dark hue stains your tonge! A nice way to go if it were my last drink before dying. - SLIGHT RE-RATE - seems a bit variable esp on tap, but when its on it is still the coco-bomb.

SimonB (66) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2004
330 ml bottle. Small to average creamy brownish head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing. Very dark brown body (almost opaque black). Dark chocolate, roasted coffee grains, strong coffee as well as a little port? aroma. Light sweetness as well as moderated bitterness as initial flavor. Moderated to high bitterness (mostly from the roasted grains) and bitter chocolate as a final flavor, average to long duration. Medium to full body, creamy yet quite dry toward the end. A light astringence balanced with the smooth body. Soft to lively carbonation. One of the best beer for the style as well as one of the best beer brewed in Montreal.

Draft in Montreal. Smooth, balanced, and satisfying brew. Malt and hops might just be too subtle for my taste.

deep brown appearance with medium head; aroma was full of roasted sweet chocolate and coffee notes; wonderful palate...flavor was very similar to its aroma, abundant of nuts, coffee, and CHOCOLATE! as silphium said, it is very similar to Bells Kalamazoo stout

Finally, a chance to try this Canadian stout! Thanks Stephen (tiggmtl) for the trade! Pours deep chestnut-brown with a medium yellow-tan head. Deep roasted, slightly charred malt aroma with coffee notes. Flavor is dry and woody with strong, dense roast, hints of nuts (salted in-the-shell peanuts?), just a touch of black licorice, and bittersweet chocolate. This is IMO pretty much the same beer as Bellís Kalamazoo Stout, which means itís damned good.

What a great stout. Smells great, looks great and tastes - well, very good. Nice mild bitterness with a hint of coffee and a nice maltiness. Bitter without being overpowering. Youíd be hard pressed to find a better all-around stout.
