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.

Roasty/Toasty first impression. Very Nice. Part of Gift Pack I was given of exotic brews. Have had a few Stouts to appreciate a good one. This is one. Nice and Smooth.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2003 Pours black with a huge tan frothy head, enticing. A woody rum like aroma. Roasted taste with a carbonated feel. The alcohol seems noticable perhaps this is due to the carbonation. Lacked sweetness and creaminess and was thin. Not really a session beer which is odd for a 5% beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Very dark opaque black color,medium sized foamy dark brown head,with a very long amount of staying power.Very chocolatey and coffeish aroma with roastiness as well,and semi-sweet.Sweet taste with a nice coffee and chocolate,very smooth and creamy feeling.All the flavors meld perfectly and have a very balanced flavor that gives a little of all but not any one being overly dominant.The after taste is a mild chocolate and coffee with a mild bitterness to it.This is a very pleasant and easy drinking brew and if it weren't for the postal system destroying the other bottle i would have 1 more to enjoy.Thanks to Mr_Kimchee for this fine brew.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2005 Chocolate and coffee with an almost liqueur-like sweetness in the nose. Dark brown opaque body with a milk-chocolate coloured finger-wide head that is fully diminishing with some lacing. Rather hoppy but well-balanced with additional bitterness from the dark roasted malts. Bitter dark chocolate and strong coffee with raisin like fruit flavour. Long, dry, roasty finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with light, fine-bubbled carbonation that tickles the tongue and a very dry finish with lingering black malt bitterness. Bottle. Every time I have this whether on tap or in the bottle, I am again amazed by how wonderful it is. We are truly lucky to have a brewer of such fine calibre in our city! Available also on tap as the ’house’ stout at McKibbins Irish Pub.

Pours black with a nice tan (short lived) head. Strong coffee, chocolate and roasted oat aroma. Taste is a little thin with a roasted oat, dark chocolate flavor. Finish is a little hard to define but pleasant.

Nice looking beer, black with good head retention. Smells of chocolate and coffee. The oatmeal was a nice touch. Not much for body with a watery mouthfeel and little creaminess. I was expecting more from this beer, although still a good beer. Thanks for sharing the wealth egajdzis.

Poured an opaque brown color with a nice tan head that left a good amount of lacing on the glass. Had an aroma of chocolate and coffee. It had a sweet dry taste of chocolate and oatmeal. Dry finish. Rather thin mouthfeel, I was expecting alittle more out of this brew after reading the reviews. Still I am glad to have tried it, thanks Rastacouere!

Oh yeah, very drinkable for an oatmeal stout. Though overall I think I prefer Samuel Smiths over this one slightly.

Dorwart (2409) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Nice rich brown head but small. Settles nicely. Awesome complex aroma dominated by raisins with roasted grains, molasses and a touch of alcohol. Color is black, with hints of black and a touch of black. Flavor is quite smooth with plenty of coffee which was missing in the aroma. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma. Finish is a little bitter from the hops. A very good stout although the body was a little bit thinnner that I expected from a oatmeal stout and it is certainly lacking in the alcohol department.

Black colour, fully opaque with a full brown head (poured from Nitrogen). Smells of oatmeal, roasted malt and a bit of coffee! Medium-bodied. Coats the mouth, bitterness is great, strong sweetness & roasted malt (oatmeal) flavour. Aftertaste bittered from the roasted characteristics, but very nice! Sweet notes in the finish as well. A great beer all-around! I had this pint on draught at the Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario with Josh (Oakes) and Scott (Publican) on 13-September-2003.
