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.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2003 Black with the slightest ruby edge. Nice brown head and lace. Fantastic aroma of roasted grains, chocolate, flaked barley, coffee, vanilla and others. Medium-thin bodied, smooth, tons of of black malt character, huge coffee bitterness that gives way (only for a second) to subtle oaty sweetness. The roasted/bitter coffee finish does not end and meshes with the hops perfectly. Very addicting brew that could use a bit more body IMHO but makes up for it in depth of flavor. Thank you hopsrus.

Awesome beer. Pours a tar like colour just like pancake syrup. Head is an incredible dark brown and huge. Great lacing follows. The aroma is full of oatmeal at first and then moves to coffee, chocolate and roasted nuts. Flavour is astonishing as it tastes like semi-sweet chocolate, rolled oats and coffee. The finish is chewy yet creamy with a fudge aftertaste that beckons you back for more. The best I've tried so far. Thanks Shorlin!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 this is the most beautiful beer i have ever seen in my entire life..the head is DARK brown and HUGE..the color is completely black and utterly opaque..the aroma had tons of oatmeal, chocolate, coffee, and burnt caramel..lots of coffee, bitter chocolate, breakfast oatmeal, pumperknickle bread..slightly salty like roasted peanuts in vanilla ice cream and smothered in real chewy fudge..nice full body for a lower gravity stout..roasty notes are there but are in harmony with everything else..which is nice for a change..

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 Looks absolutely gorgeous and smells even better. Black with a frothy brown head. Malty aroma with honey, caramel, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Good balanced flavour, with a roasted, chocolate, and coffee taste. Great mouthfeel as well, soft, a bit creamy, with just enough carbonation.

aracauna (3039) - Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2003
Pours perfectly opaque black with a head like a chocolate milkshake. The aroma is big and bold with a slight lactic quality and a suggestion of tartness. The flavor is nicely roasty but balanced by the softer dark malts. Comes across like chocolate charcoal. Despite a slight harshness, the overall effect is a very soft beer. Oily on the tongue.

TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 Opaque black. Grayish-tan foam with excellent retention. The nose is full of intense roastiness with buttery notes, ink, plums, cardboard, and chocolate. Silky, oily in feel with some sharp spritz. A myriad of flavors from beginning to end: intense coffee middle increases to the finish, alongside coconut, raisin, and flaky roasted barley. The finish shows a sufficient amount of oatmeal goodness, which I always seek in the style but never find, with a complex mix of mocha, caramel, lactose, and drying hints of charcoal dryness. Runs neck and neck with El Toro and Samuel Smith’s. A real beauty.

Awesome stout. After pouring into a pilsner glass, I couldn't even get a flashlight to penetrate the super black liquid. It's that dark with bold, complex, and challenging flavors. Chicory and coffee kept repeating in my mind, but I think it's a little dry to be called a sweet stout. Still, I couldn't wait to take the next sip right to the end.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Black with a tan,milky, lacey head.The lacework is great. Aromas are oaty,ROASTY,chocolate,coffee. Mouthfeel is oily,full.Body is big! Flavors in mouth are roasty,sweet,slightly burnt and delicious. Finish is long herbal and bittersweet. Get's much thicker as it sits,and seems even more balanced and tasty! Tastes a bit mushy/old but still has tons of flavor and body. In it's prime I bet this is just heavenly.

This is what sweet chocolately dreams are made of. . . Full aroma of oats, malt and chocolate. Dark and creamy, this beer is sweet candy on the tongue, this is when you wonder why can't this beer last forever. . .
