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.

Really looked forward trying this at the summer party. Multilayered hue and a nice tan head, good lacing. Full-bodied. Awesome aroma with vanilla and chocolate hints, espresso, prunes and oats (duh). Taste was balanced between malts and hops, vinous. Fizzy to start but softer mouthfeel as I drank it. Outstanding beer, worthy of the praise, but I still like Samuel Smith's Oatmeal better.

a burst of flavour! pitch black, with big brown head. smells mostly of coffee and some bitter chocolate. there is just so many different flavours going on in my mouth! It's great. Mildly bitter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Smokey, roasty, liquorice, choc aroma. I thought I could smell some smoked ham or something in this. Satisfying chocolate and liquorice flavours, though not as complex as the aroma hinted. Dry finish was a little too short for something with such great flavours. Thanks Josh for this fine example and many more.

Guinness should take lessons from these guys. This is the real deal, pitch black, with complex flavours of espresso coffee, liquorice, and dark fruit combine with a well-hopped bitterness. A true world classic, I prefer the bottled version to the draught. Nitrogen does not do it for me. It just dumbs down the beer- any beer.

One of my first (and favorite) beers. Made locally, the stuff is always excellent when purchased, and goes down smooth on ever occasion.

A great looking beer: dark brown bordering on black with a huge tan head. Nice chocolate malt and coffee aroma. Flavor has one heck of a hop bite to it, a great surprise for a stout. Thick, meaty texture. Definitely suggested. Thanks again, DougShoemaker!

Eirikur (370) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - APR 7, 2003
This is one of the best Stouts I have had. It has large nice head, very nicely balanced and leaves a nicely balanced hoppy, moccha aftertaste. Thanks Doug Shoemaker

Normally, I do not have much love for the oatmeal stout, however, this is an exception. Black color with a large coppery/brown head. Has a great roasted chocolate smell with some hints of mocha, or something like that and it even seems to have somewhat of a rye smell in the background. Seems to have some jim beam flavors in it to add to the thick malty chocolate coffee taste. An impressive beer to say the least.

Awesome stout. Opaque deep, dark brown/black color with a brown head. The aroma was a decadent mix of roasted coffee beans and chocolate. The flavor was more roasty and bitter with a pure chocolate aftertaste. Crisp feel...not as smooth as I would expect from an oatmeal stout, but refreshing. Great stout.
