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.

Opaque, black body with a dense kahki head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is of cocoa, roasted barley, and espresso beans, lovely. Bitter and roasty up front, leads into a sublte sweetness with hints of bitter-sweet chocolate and roasted coffee beans. Wonderful smooth milky mouth feel. Finishes roasty, and fairly bitter.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Bottled - Smokeless Joes Toronto. Aroma has some roastiness but is not particularly pronounced. The colour is a fantastic black with a good head. The flavour also has some roasty notes but not enough for me for a stout. I was suprised to see it is a top 50 beer as I found it quite thin.

Opaque brown, seems to be balanced perfectly between sweet and dry. Chocolate and coffee notes. Finishes on the bitter side. Thanks for the bonus, tidiaguy.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2005 Very black body with brown head. Every mouthful is filled with somptuous coffee and roast aromas. The alcohol makes this beer very warming and it ends with a deep and long lasting roast finish.

Lubiere (10997) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
Opaque black ale with a nice moika head. Nice chocolate nose with coca-cola like qualities. Good roasted coffee beans with some nuts and bitter choclate, and a nice hadful of hops. Body is good but less dense than in previous years. Come on MacAuslan brewers, don't destroy a wonderful things

Very nice espresso aroma. Taste is much drier than expected, espresso mainly, with a hint of oatmeal(!). Finish is raosty and dry. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2006 Had this one on tap at REBEL’s ROCK IRISH PUB in Hamilton, Ontario. Poured a black body, withg a trhick and frothy caramel coloured head. Sweet aromas of mild malt, coffee, and chocolate. Tastes like caramel, and sweet malty, but I find it just a little watery on the finish. Full bodied though for the most part. Heavy lacing on the glass as well. This could have been a 5.0 had it not been for the somewhat watery finish. A great Canadian product in any event. Update os overall to 18. Drinkability plays a factor in this.

Pours a dark brown/black color, moderate brown head, long lasting lace. Aroma is roasty, plenty of chocolate, malt, coffee, and enough sweetness from the oatmeal. An excellent full, round body delivers the great balance of sweetness and roastiness. Caramel, oatmeal, roasted malt, cocoa all complimenting each other. Another damn fine beer that lives up to its reputation.

A fine Canadian stout...probably the best available widely in bottles. I want to try this one on tap again soon...it's delicious! Is also sold in the now standard brown Canuck long-neck twist off crown bottle (not a very fitting presentation for this fine stout). Had a "best before code" logged at 6 months from production date and there was nothing on the label to indicate it was preservative free with this lengthy shelf life although the web site says that they are "naturally brewed". Poured a black opaque color that defies light to pass through the glass....a puffy mocha head stays quite a while then reduced to a brown lace half way through the drink. Smells of cooking coffee, spice and carmel. Starts fairly thick, rich and malty then builds to a well balanced, complex, full creamy body with accents of coffee, burnt toast and hoppy bitterness mingled with slight hints of fruit that vanish as the hop bitters take over in the finish...has a tart dryer finish that leaves a lingering metallic taste that is surprisingly not unpleasant to the palate. A good balance between a dry Irish stout and a malty london stout. All in all a great bottled Canadian 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.
