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.

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.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2004
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.

kathouse (1418) - Nevada, USA - MAR 16, 2004
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 (3542) - 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.
