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.

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 (1593) - 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 Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout, which means it’s 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. You’d be hard pressed to find a better all-around stout.

High-quality production here. Looks beautiful and very dark, complex aroma. Nice bitter chocolate taste, but a bit thin and could use some notes of sweetness. Well worth the purchase. I may have had it too cold, and should retaste later... which won’t be a hardship.

12 oz bottle-thanks to Whaleman for sending this beer from his trip to Montreal. pours pitch black with rocky tan head. aroma of roasted notes, dark chocolate, copper pennies (metalic) and some slight spicy notes (hops?). lots of coffee flavors here, esperically on the long burnt finish. Very nice lacing for a stout! slighlty sour flavors start but then are invaded with a dark chocolate mid palate fading into a long burnt finish. As it warmed, the aromas became less metallic and more roasty/hoppy. I think that all oatmeal stouts need to be warmed more before serving (i think that was my problem). A top 50? I dont know. One of the better oatmeal stouts on the market? definately!!
