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.

Many thanks to muzzlehatch for trading a bottle of this to me. My #52 rating, putting me in the #3 Vermont rater spot. :) (For now.) Pours absolutely opaque black with a huge brown head; tan lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is beefy (well, not literally), with coffee, chocolate, caramel, malt, and hops very noticeable; wonderfully sweet, roasty smell. Rolling this along across my tongue, the beer gets richer as it starts to froth up, and the sharp sweetness really comes out. Flavor is predominantly of coffee and chocolate, and the finish is wonderfully balanced--mildly bitter and not at all overdone. Body is a bit on the thin side, though, but flavor, aroma, and appearance make up for it. Overall, this is easily among the best beers I have ever had. This is a superb oatmeal stout; just plain enjoyable to drink. I only wish I could easily get more.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2004
Opaque, black body with a dense kahki head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is of cocoa, roasted barley, and espresso beans, lovely. Bitter and roasty up front, leads into a sublte sweetness with hints of bitter-sweet chocolate and roasted coffee beans. Wonderful smooth milky mouth feel. Finishes roasty, and fairly bitter.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Bottled - Smokeless Joes Toronto. Aroma has some roastiness but is not particularly pronounced. The colour is a fantastic black with a good head. The flavour also has some roasty notes but not enough for me for a stout. I was suprised to see it is a top 50 beer as I found it quite thin.

Opaque brown, seems to be balanced perfectly between sweet and dry. Chocolate and coffee notes. Finishes on the bitter side. Thanks for the bonus, tidiaguy.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2005 Very black body with brown head. Every mouthful is filled with somptuous coffee and roast aromas. The alcohol makes this beer very warming and it ends with a deep and long lasting roast finish.

Lubiere (10700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
Opaque black ale with a nice moika head. Nice chocolate nose with coca-cola like qualities. Good roasted coffee beans with some nuts and bitter choclate, and a nice hadful of hops. Body is good but less dense than in previous years. Come on MacAuslan brewers, don't destroy a wonderful things

Very nice espresso aroma. Taste is much drier than expected, espresso mainly, with a hint of oatmeal(!). Finish is raosty and dry. Very enjoyable.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2006 Had this one on tap at REBEL’s ROCK IRISH PUB in Hamilton, Ontario. Poured a black body, withg a trhick and frothy caramel coloured head. Sweet aromas of mild malt, coffee, and chocolate. Tastes like caramel, and sweet malty, but I find it just a little watery on the finish. Full bodied though for the most part. Heavy lacing on the glass as well. This could have been a 5.0 had it not been for the somewhat watery finish. A great Canadian product in any event. Update os overall to 18. Drinkability plays a factor in this.

Pours a dark brown/black color, moderate brown head, long lasting lace. Aroma is roasty, plenty of chocolate, malt, coffee, and enough sweetness from the oatmeal. An excellent full, round body delivers the great balance of sweetness and roastiness. Caramel, oatmeal, roasted malt, cocoa all complimenting each other. Another damn fine beer that lives up to its reputation.
