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.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 Looks absolutely gorgeous and smells even better. Black with a frothy brown head. Malty aroma with honey, caramel, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Good balanced flavour, with a roasted, chocolate, and coffee taste. Great mouthfeel as well, soft, a bit creamy, with just enough carbonation.

aracauna (3055) - Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2003
Pours perfectly opaque black with a head like a chocolate milkshake. The aroma is big and bold with a slight lactic quality and a suggestion of tartness. The flavor is nicely roasty but balanced by the softer dark malts. Comes across like chocolate charcoal. Despite a slight harshness, the overall effect is a very soft beer. Oily on the tongue.

TAR (2468) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 Opaque black. Grayish-tan foam with excellent retention. The nose is full of intense roastiness with buttery notes, ink, plums, cardboard, and chocolate. Silky, oily in feel with some sharp spritz. A myriad of flavors from beginning to end: intense coffee middle increases to the finish, alongside coconut, raisin, and flaky roasted barley. The finish shows a sufficient amount of oatmeal goodness, which I always seek in the style but never find, with a complex mix of mocha, caramel, lactose, and drying hints of charcoal dryness. Runs neck and neck with El Toro and Samuel Smith’s. A real beauty.

Awesome stout. After pouring into a pilsner glass, I couldn't even get a flashlight to penetrate the super black liquid. It's that dark with bold, complex, and challenging flavors. Chicory and coffee kept repeating in my mind, but I think it's a little dry to be called a sweet stout. Still, I couldn't wait to take the next sip right to the end.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2003
Black with a tan,milky, lacey head.The lacework is great. Aromas are oaty,ROASTY,chocolate,coffee. Mouthfeel is oily,full.Body is big! Flavors in mouth are roasty,sweet,slightly burnt and delicious. Finish is long herbal and bittersweet. Get's much thicker as it sits,and seems even more balanced and tasty! Tastes a bit mushy/old but still has tons of flavor and body. In it's prime I bet this is just heavenly.

This is what sweet chocolately dreams are made of. . . Full aroma of oats, malt and chocolate. Dark and creamy, this beer is sweet candy on the tongue, this is when you wonder why can't this beer last forever. . .

Note to self, when you are looking for beer, even if you have been in the store before, look again. You never know what you might find.Poured perfectly with a quickly fading head.Coffee,chocolatey, rich and full bodied. Lip coating dryness,acidic bitterness rolls off the tongue.I almost think that I ought to be able to get one of these at Starbucks instead of my morning Quad shot.I see nothing sweet about this one, it in No way resembles Samuel Smiths, balanced roasted bitterness, it works for me, Highly Recommended

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2003
Pours almost black with a creamy tan head that thinned out quickly. Strong aroma of chocolate, coffee, and a little fruit (chocolate covered cherries). Flavor to match with a roasty, smokey bitterness. Full, creamy mouthfeel, feels like its coating my tongue.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2003 Very dark brown with a HUGE off-off-white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts, touch of melon, touch of butterscotch and alcohol. Dry flavor with a roasty finish. Super astringent, making my throat pucker. I loved the aroma, the flavor can go to hell.
