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.

Dorwart (2394) - 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.

jgb9348 (4860) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2003
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.

coffee, coffee, coffee, and some couch upholstery. i wasn't expecting the coffee sensations. i was hoping for a sweeter, more velvety taste. interesting finish thats almost a hybrid of belgian and stout styles. my mouth tastes like i just drank a pot of coffee.

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2003
Coffee and chocolate aroma. Deep dark brown in color, almost black. Flavor is dark roasted malts and coffee. Did not notice a big hop taste like the commercial description describes. Very good stout but its no Storm King.

sloth (2535) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2003
XL dark brown head, great laceing. Grainy, roasty nose. Black brew, opaque. Med/full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Roasty, chocolatey flavors with some black malt notes also. Finish is dry, kinda thin.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2003
Deep deep brown black under an awesome medium dark tan head which lasts well and generates a generous ring like lace most of the way down the glass. Surprisingly mild roasted malt aroma with hints of earth, coffee and chocolate. Surprisingly light, almost cola like thin, but wonderful velvety smooth body. Medium light roasted bitter malt and lighter milk sweetness flavours. Short medium bitter fresh finish and aftertaste.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 Simply black coloured, beautiful. It smells like a good espresso. The taste is indeed sweet, burnt caramel and chocolate in harmony. Complex malt, admirable balance. Nice bitterness to balance it all. Round texture, creamy, highly drinkable.

jercraigs (8091) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2006 Toronto Festival of Beer 2006 - Another one I have had a bunch of times but not re-rated. Black body, with a big mousse like head. Mild, sweet roasty malt aroma. Very light roast bitterness accents sweet malt and chocolate notes. Creamy medium palate. 7/5/7/4/15 - 3.8<P> Toronto Festival of Beer 2001 - Creamy and smooth with a roastyness that is on the sweeter side of stouts. The only stout I’ll drink without apprehension - I am not normally fond of stout. 6/3/6/5/13 - 3.3
