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.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2016
Opaque black with no visible activity. Creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of sweet biscuity chocolatey roasted walnuts, really nice. Flavors of coffee, cocoa, roasted nuts and almond, toffee, sweet grains, honey, herbal spices. Well balanced sweet taste coupled with a pleasant roasted bitter feel. Smooth creamy medium body with perfect carbonation. Medium strength finish and nice intensity, ending with a sweet buttery caramel feel and a dash of lingering bitter spices. Overall an excellent craft having delicious complex and pronounced flavors, very fresh, perfectly spiced and nicely balanced. One of my favorite sweet stout.

Great looking stout with a nice Guinness-like 'head rise' on tap. Not much nose to my taste but very well balanced body, great malty flavours and sweetness.

La St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout è di colore nero corvino, opaco; presenta una schiuma di colore marrone pannosa, di grande spessore, e di buonissima aderenza sul bicchiere. Al naso è semplice ma robusta, porta in dote aromi di malto, cioccolato, sciroppo, succo di amarena, farina d’avena e caffè macinato. Il gusto è sapido e molto ben equilibrato. Vi è un forte carattere di cioccolato che viene accentuato da note terrose; amaro granuloso con un 45 di IBU. La farina d’avena porta un po’ di acidità, note di prugna e uva passa si mescolano nel finale leggermente legnoso, accompagnato da un retrogusto abbastanza secco. Questa St. Ambroise ha un corpo denso e granuloso, da lieve a moderata la carbonatazione; una piacevole cremosità accompagna la bevuta.

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustée le 7 novembre 2015 (Eng. pint). Bière noire opaque. Mousse peu, col mince beige foncé, éphémère. Peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de vanille d’abord, de café moulu ensuite, puis de chocolat en finale. Très douce, très sucrée mais pas sirupeuse ni trop lourde, un peu amère. Saveur de café brûlé et de chocolat noir. Assez consistante sans être lourde.

Stoned99 (1321) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
Glass on tap at Balthazar. Aroma: licorice, candied fruits, chocolate, roasted malt, molasses. App: dark brown, huge mocha head, amazing lacing. Taste and palate: full body, creamy, smooth, medium sweetness, fruity, subtle bitter finish. Overall: something I always enjoy and for some reason never rated. Even better on tap. A great offering.

erickok (5453) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2016
Pitch black, very nice head. Roasted malts, peppery, dark tea leaves. Full taste, hard roasted, bitter, characterful and outspoken. Nice body too. The oats really do it, I think. Good brew! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottle shared. Pours black with tan head. Coffee, chocolate, lactose, nut nose. Flavour follows nose. Full of flavour but a not overly complex.

Parmi mes classiques, les saveurs de pain rôti en finale viennent s’ajouter au plaisir des notes de café et de chocolat. À mon goût, tout est en équilibre dans cette bière.
