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: JUN 24, 2004 Dark brown opaque w/ a small tan head. Chocolate malt aroma w/ hints of roastiness and caramel. That’s about it. Roast become stronger as it warms. Chocolate flavor and bitterness from hops, balanced to bitter, light caramel and a light hop flavor. Harshly astringent IMHO, med. body and low carbonation. Smooths out a bit with age.

This beer is black like feces in the dark. Thankfully, its taste is more pleasant. No "Boreale Noire" though. :/

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Bottle pours a dense black, very thick, frothish tan colored head, with attractive lacing.   Aroma of burnt malts, hops, and slight coffee on the nose.   Forwardly hoppy, bitter, with burnt malts, coffee and bittersweet chocolate.   The coffee and bittersweet chocolate follow through to the finish.   Good flavor, but body and palate aren’t as thick and heavy as I was hoping.   It has a nice malty character tho.   Finishes malty, with a nice hop bitterness, as well as a slightly dry unsweetened chocolatey flavor.   Not my favorite stout, but good nonetheless.   Thanks goes out to Rastacouere for the trade!

At long last, my Torontonian friend brought me a six pack of this wonderful beer. I was able to get over my silly preference for hoppy stouts enough to enjoy the black patent malt character of this near-perfect stout. Silky texture and incredible malt character. Terribly fine, traditional stout.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
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.

JorisPPattyn (8688) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2004
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.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAY 14, 2004
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.
