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.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Black as night, with a tan head. The promise of chocolate and burnt coffee made by the nose is delivered in the mouth. This is a fantastic beer. The only small criticism I would have is that it could have a bit more weight in the mouth. I wish this beer was more widely available in Canada.

Thanks to Rastacouere for sending this to me! Pours midnight black. No light is creeping through this thing. Moderate foamy tan head. Nose is roasted malt, some lighter coffee and wood notes. Very pleasant coffee-ish and burnt taste. Very smooth but a little oily feeling on the palate. Nice roasted malt finish. Very good beer, but I think a tad overrated.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Pours black and beautiful with a frothy tan head and a mochachino bouquet. Bold coffee and burnt chocolate flavours mingle with roasted barley, hops and (of course) oatmeal. Just fantastic, truly deserving the accolades mentioned here. (341ml bottle)

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2004 A gorgeous nearly opaque black with mahogany highlights and a thick lasting frothy brown head. They dont come any better looking than this one. Powerful aroma of espresso, chocolate, molassess, vanilla, and roast with hints of bourbon and cardboard. Medium creamy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Powerful flavor of roast, vanilla, coffee, oatmeal, and chocolate. An excellent beer. Huge thanks to Rastacouere!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Pours a beautiful jet-black colour with a dark brown head. Leaves a bit of nice lacing on the glass. Great nose of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Very rich and chocolatey in the mouth with a nice bitter finish. This is a great one... puts Guinness to shame!

Pours dark black in my glass with a milk chocolate coloured head. Aromas or chocolate, coffee, toasty malts. Medium mouthfeel but huge flavours of chocolate, malts ,coffee some oatmeal. I consider myself lucky to have this readily available at my liquor store

I absolutely LOVE this beer...the taste is rich with chocolate, but without tasting like coffee like a lot of other stouts, and it actually tastes great cold. There seems to be no end to the layers of taste..you notice something new every time you drink one. The appearance, strangely, didn't strike me as anything special, but this is one of my top three beers (Aventinus Doppelbock and Traquair Jacobite Ale being the other two). I hunt this stuff down wherever I can find it, and thankfully, since I live in Canada, it's not hard to find.

Pours an opaque cascading black with a hot chocolate colored head (Draft at Ziggy's). Not much aroma, possibly due to bar atmosphere with clove cigarettes being smoked right behind us. Creamy, smokey roasted malts. Nice mild bitter finish with delicious dark chocolate hints throughout. The head on this beer is unbelieveable. If you have a chance to drink this on tap, DO NOT pass it up.

Not much more can be said about this that hasn't already been said - great head, good color, a great taste and not too too heavy. However, the aftertaste is a little strong and I don't recommend this beer with food.

On Tap: Pours opaque black with an invinceable creamy light tan head. Palate is very creamy and very thick. Nose is pretty faint. Start is mildly sweet with some chocolate, finishes with some bitterness. The creaminess and palate makes this beer.
