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.

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!

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.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - APR 4, 2003
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.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 A perennial favourite. To this day, its' dark pour and chocolate brown head bring a smile to my face. An olfactory medley draws me close. Beguiling malts and a hoppy smack in the face finish with a lingering sweetness. I've come to enjoy this black beauty with a slice of fresh, warm pecan pie and a side of French vanilla ice cream.

Midnight black color. Medium head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. A medium bodied sweet stout. Deeply roasted malts. Big dark malt flavors, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and a touch of wood. Extremely smooth. Creamy and slightly sweet. Very easy to drink, nice sipping beer. Complex yet subtle, Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Definit whiskey cask undertones to this one. Roasted coffee and lightly burn dark chocolate in the nose. A bit thinner than expected but plesant. Not overly sweet IMO but fairly dry, layers of coffee and backers chocolate in the mouth with some lacotos tartness and a dry coffee finish. Prehaps another bottle will prove otherwise but I found this one nice but overhyped.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2003 Black with the slightest ruby edge. Nice brown head and lace. Fantastic aroma of roasted grains, chocolate, flaked barley, coffee, vanilla and others. Medium-thin bodied, smooth, tons of of black malt character, huge coffee bitterness that gives way (only for a second) to subtle oaty sweetness. The roasted/bitter coffee finish does not end and meshes with the hops perfectly. Very addicting brew that could use a bit more body IMHO but makes up for it in depth of flavor. Thank you hopsrus.

Awesome beer. Pours a tar like colour just like pancake syrup. Head is an incredible dark brown and huge. Great lacing follows. The aroma is full of oatmeal at first and then moves to coffee, chocolate and roasted nuts. Flavour is astonishing as it tastes like semi-sweet chocolate, rolled oats and coffee. The finish is chewy yet creamy with a fudge aftertaste that beckons you back for more. The best I've tried so far. Thanks Shorlin!
