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 is a very good beer. I am not typically a stout fan but will make an exception here. Nice aroma with hints of chocolate and vanilla. Great appearance with a black body and a nice tan head. Very balanced. Nicely hopped with the necessary roasty malts. Some liquiroice present as well. Initially lightly sweet with a dryer but nice finish. I wish this was sold in my maket;. Well done.

Wheatsheaf (104) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 Bottle. A near-black stout with a full aroma of roasted malt and a definite smokiness. Roasty, nutty, and bitter chocolate flavors dominate the medium, moderately carbonated body, leaving a nice, burnt aftertaste. A very flavourful stout that drinks bigger than it’s 5% abv. Always enjoyable.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 On tap, beer bistro (re-rate). One of the best Canadian beers out there. Pitch black, great chocolaty white head, thick and lasting. Lots of roast in aroma, and chocolate notes. Tons of roast and chocolate in taste, hint so coffee and vanilla. What a great chewy oatmeal stout, this is my go to winter pint.

piscator34 (2128) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 28, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 Black as night, with a tan head. The promise of chocolate and burnt coffee made by the nose is delivered in the mouth. This is a fantastic beer. The only small criticism I would have is that it could have a bit more weight in the mouth. I wish this beer was more widely available in Canada.

Thanks to Rastacouere for sending this to me! Pours midnight black. No light is creeping through this thing. Moderate foamy tan head. Nose is roasted malt, some lighter coffee and wood notes. Very pleasant coffee-ish and burnt taste. Very smooth but a little oily feeling on the palate. Nice roasted malt finish. Very good beer, but I think a tad overrated.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Pours black and beautiful with a frothy tan head and a mochachino bouquet. Bold coffee and burnt chocolate flavours mingle with roasted barley, hops and (of course) oatmeal. Just fantastic, truly deserving the accolades mentioned here. (341ml bottle)

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2004 A gorgeous nearly opaque black with mahogany highlights and a thick lasting frothy brown head. They dont come any better looking than this one. Powerful aroma of espresso, chocolate, molassess, vanilla, and roast with hints of bourbon and cardboard. Medium creamy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Powerful flavor of roast, vanilla, coffee, oatmeal, and chocolate. An excellent beer. Huge thanks to Rastacouere!

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Pours a beautiful jet-black colour with a dark brown head. Leaves a bit of nice lacing on the glass. Great nose of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Very rich and chocolatey in the mouth with a nice bitter finish. This is a great one... puts Guinness to shame!

Pours dark black in my glass with a milk chocolate coloured head. Aromas or chocolate, coffee, toasty malts. Medium mouthfeel but huge flavours of chocolate, malts ,coffee some oatmeal. I consider myself lucky to have this readily available at my liquor store

I absolutely LOVE this beer...the taste is rich with chocolate, but without tasting like coffee like a lot of other stouts, and it actually tastes great cold. There seems to be no end to the layers of taste..you notice something new every time you drink one. The appearance, strangely, didn't strike me as anything special, but this is one of my top three beers (Aventinus Doppelbock and Traquair Jacobite Ale being the other two). I hunt this stuff down wherever I can find it, and thankfully, since I live in Canada, it's not hard to find.
