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: 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.

Pours a darkblack with a nice sudsy tan head. Aroma is noticable on the pour. Roasted malt/dark chocolate with a light coffee nose hintsofcaramel sweetness with some toffee notes. Smoothe roasted malt flavor is balanced oh so well, slight coffee taste with a mild underlying sweetness. Ends with a pleasant bitter and an aftertaste of coffee and some sweet malty flavors. Smooth. Excellent.

Deepest brown, nearly black; brown-greige head, thick & dense, leaving lace. Nose of burnt coffee, cigar tobacco, dark green leaves (aucuba...). Dark black coffee taste, fully roasted grain. There is a definite grain taste -vaguely reminiscent of diet flakes, all-bran, Knäckebrod, etc. - oatmeal, no doubt. Very bitter finish, both burnt grain and hops - not very noble though. Not very well-bodied, rather watery texture, the oatmeal notwithstanding. This is certainly a good stout. But where it hails its world-classic status from, is an enigma to me.

Pours a jet-black color with some translucence if held to a bright light. Lacing and head is minimal. Aroma is sweet coffee and chocolate mixed with some hop notes as well. Flavor is excellent. The perfect mix of roasted, burnt coffee and sweet chocolate with a good hop bitter finish. This reminds me of a chocolate liquor in some aspects. Body is full and rich. A really great stout.

Full of flavour. Great mouthfeel and a very pleasant aroma. The best example of stout that I’ve been able to find commerically.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 nice chocolate lack color and taste. Thick consistency. Nice bittersweet chocolate/expresso aftertaste with a tad of sweetness.. Can sip and enjoy. Had later on draft-very smooth

Big foamy tan head on a black body. Aroma is not really strong but is like unground coffee beans. Flavour is much more pronounced with a kind of fruity start and a strong heavily roasted, but not burnt, coffee finish. Has a very thick consistency. Many thanks to tiggmtl for the trade.

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.
