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.

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.

Mmmmmm. Beautiful dark creamy head. Excellent coffee, roasted malt taste with the perfect hop balance. This is like having a meal in a bottle. Thanks Peter!!

This beer rocks! The aroma holds huge notes of milk chocolate and hickory smoke with lesser notes of vanilla, dark coffee, cinnamon and toasted nuts. This stout pours thick and black. Even when held up to extremely bright light, this beer is black, black, black! A lazer beam shot from the head of a "frickin’ shark" couldn’t pass through this glass of liquid fudge. Large, rocky, deeply tanned head. Mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The flavor is extremely well balanced. Bursts of smoke, espresso and dark chocolate up front. Excellent blend of acidity, mild bitterness and a light tartness on the backside. Just a hint of vanilla on the tongue. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation and a short crisp, clean, dry finish. This gem has a balanced flavor rarely found in an Oatmeal Stout. Sweet Stout??? I don’t think so.

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Nice consistency and dark caramel head over a big black body. The roasted, smoky flavors were very strong at first, but it blended nicely to be a good all-purpose stout. Nice long finish, more dry than I expected. Excellent stuff.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Deep black, thick bubbly tan head, sheets of chocolate milkshake lace coat the glass on the way down. This is one very thick chewy stout. Flavors are strong and well balanced between the sweetness (a little fruit in the flavor too) and a nice roastiness. Dry finish

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2003 Yes, this one's a winner. Thick, roasted, burnt malt flavor makes it very drinkable. Where can I get more?

Had a bit (on tap at the C’est What at the end of Fri night’s summer party festivities, but I was wiped). So now I’m at home having DougShoemaker’s gift bottle. Far and away the best Oatmeal stout I’ve ever had...perfectly balanced. I like roastiness, and this has got it. But it is also amazingly smooth, and has the most wonderful slight raisin (and other fruit?) sweetness. Ahhhh. Aroma and flavor perfectly matched...a real world classic.
