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.

Thanks to Boutip for this brew. Opaque body, with a frothy tan head. Oatmeal, Copper, Espresso, Hops dominate the aroma. Taste is very smooth, with evident chocolate, and oatmeal. A pretty darn good stout.

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 14, 2004
Mocha head, dark deep black and brown. Sour malt nose with Mint(?) and cherry. Light to medium mouthfeel, dry finish with foamy carbonation. Chocolate, toffee, bitter chocolatte finish, refreshing(?), some herbal notes with a bit of sourness in the finish. Not bad, though a bit hyped it seems IMO. Thanks Jer_craigs!

I simply love this stout. Has been my favorite beer for many years now. The extra bitterness of this stout is something I quite enjoy.

Dark beer out of the bottle with a frothy brown head. Dark malty nose with hints of chocolate and licorice. Pours very thick and leaves great lace. Very smooth mouthfeel that coats the mouth in a very pleasing way. Chocolate with a strong malty sweetness balanced well by the coffee bitterness. Great sipping beer. Thanks a ton to my Secret Santa for this one.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Deep, dark body and a great mocha head. Aroma of roasty coffee and dark dried fruit. Flavor is surprisingly bitter, esspresso-like. Some bitter chocolate maltiness. Finished rather dry and bitter, even a touch phenolic.

Sampled from 341 ml brown bottle. Jet black with tan head, aroma of black coffee and chocolate. Lots of roasted taste with a subtle sweetness. More dark choclate notes and more coffee in the bitter finish. Thanks to Deb.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Black body with a big stiff tan head - leaves viney lacing. Rich malty chocolate dominates the aroma, accompanied by bitter coffee and dark esters. Underwhelming flavor and mouthfeel, I was hoping for something a little thicker and sweeter. The flavor is nice though, featuring light chocolate and smooth coffee in the start, finished with bread and coffee bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2007 Initial Rating (8/23/2004). HUGE thanks to slikwily for this beautiful beer. The pour is a creamy black with a tan creamy head that last quite a while. The aroma is all dark chocolate, rich and smooth. The taste is a delicious match with a chocolate and coffee flavor and a bitter chocolate aftertaste. Outstanding.

Two 2007 Bottles acquired in trade. Pour is absolutely lucious. Black matte with a luxurious head of frothy tan cream. Lace coats the glass. Aroma is really enticing, rich malted chocolate (like chocolate malt balls). The flavor is mild bitterness and rich chocolate. The body is perfect. I wish this was distributed to NY. My numbers were right the first time.
