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.

This beer is black with a hint of brown around the edge. Nice brown foam, but I wish it had hung around. Smells of coffee, oatmeal, and dark roast malts are very nice. First taste is thick. A sweet bitterness fades into a heavy coffee aftertaste. Carbonation is low. Taste gets better after each drink.

Eructoblaster (3273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2004
Very nice black stout topped with generous and creamy brown head. Incredible roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate nose and long-lasting taste. For that price (around 1,60 CAD), this is undoubtedly the best tasting beer you can get!

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 19, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 12 oz bottle - Pure black color with a small, thin ruddy brown head. Aroma has a lot of light coffee notes, notable dark chocolate, cream, dark cherries, light molasses, bit of ash and caramel. Flavor is pretty roasty, with the associated ashy bitterness of roasted barley, bit of vanilla bean and oak, slightly burnt coffee notes, touch of dark chocolate in the finish.

Could have rated this quite a while ago... A beautiful black, with a large, frothy, chocolate-tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is malty sweet, roasted, tangy, frutiy berries, coffee, chocolate. Mmm. Tastes roasted choco-coffee, fresh, lightly citrusy hops, malty, finishes deliciously bitter and a little sour-sweet. Feels pretty rich in the mouth, my only complaint in the palate-department is that sometimes it feels a bit too "sharp", but sip it, and let it settle in the glass a bit and it should be fine. Very good.

This beer is as good a reason as any to become an alcoholic. Beautiful black colour with a lovely roasted coffee nose. Thick taste pours across the palate revealing flavours of figs, chocolate, and light caramel. YUUUUMMMMMMYYYY.

Pours a pitch black with a big fluffy tan head. It looks very inviting. The lacing is superb. The aroma is rich and malty, hints of coffee and chocolate with a good sweet malt backbone. A little bit of alcohol aroma can also be detected. The flavor is roasted malt that provides the initial bitterness then a little bit of hops. Coffee flavors dominate from about mid-swallow on. The body is full and creamy. This is an excellent stout overall, far above and beyond the typical run-of-the-mill stout.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2004 One of the best stouts I've had from a bottle. Poured with a dark rocky head, coffee chocolate flavours.

Crockett (1029) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2004
Tap pours black with a good, tawney foam head. Mild aroma of coffee and roasted maltiness. Has a very bitter first mouthful, with espresso, burnt sugar and molasses. The thick body gives way to a light smokiness, mild chocolate maltinessand dried fruits (rasins, plums, blueberries and bread). Mildly astringent and dry. Quite filling. Nice stout. Have to re-rate in a bottle.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2008 Big black pour with smallish head. Roasted malt, dried fruit coffee and anise dominate the aroma and taste. Nice hoppy bitter finish. Decent lacing throughout. Nice roasted coffee in there as well.
