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.

worldbeertaste (1702) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Smooth and delicious. Dark black with a nice brown head. Smells of nice deep roast, chocolate, oatmeal, and soft coffee overtones. A bit of smoke. Nice smooth oily body. Creamy and full. Oatmeal gives it a milky smoothness. Rich and delicious stout. Tastes of dry malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, and soft smoke which lasts into the aftertaste. Not so sweet and low abv makes it impressive for a stout. Imperial qualities at a stout level.

Pitch black with a tiny but steady coffee head. Roasted barley, coffee bitterness, dark chocolate. Taste is mainly sweet with a shy bitter aftertaste. Creamy texture, high carbonation with a dry finish

KezzaH (1) - Lindisfarne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2014 does not count
Smooth, chocolate and coffee flavours with an intense roasted oatmeal nose with chocolate and coffee overtones that is to die for. Love the initial taste on the Palate and the flavour lingers in your mouth. Excellent creamy head that lasts well. Nicest beer of this style that I have had, but it is worth noting that while I love a dark beer I find most Imperial Stouts too heavy for my palate whereas this was exactly the taste and nose I have been looking for.

Chopper925 (239) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Pitch black, clear color. Thick brown head. The smell is great, chocolate, mocca, toffee, nuts, absolutely fantastic. The taste is light sweet, at the beginning and ends with a perceptible bitter note. Palate is fresh, with a medium to thick texture. Aftertaste has some more nice coffee and roast notes. Absolutely great stout, love it!

Poured from 341 mL bottle. Incredible aroma of chocolate and coffee. Pours black with brown head. Definitely bitter in taste. Full bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, with a bitter dry finish. Overall a great bitter stout.

mattyhennessy (353) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2014
Pours an opaque black with a firm tan head. Looks delicious. Strong malt and oat aroma, nice creamy espresso and chocolate. Toffee and molasses amongst the flavours. Creamy mouthfeel and dry finish. Hard to achieve, but works brilliantly

341ml bottle from LCBO, Parkway Mall, Scarborough, ON. 5% Alc. / vol. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with one finger of lasting tanned head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma of caramel, coffee and minimal notes of booze. Taste matches aroma with a dry finish. Medium carbonation.

UXO (479) - CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Pours nearly jet black with only the slightest hints of deep cola brown around the edges, a fat finger of tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, and moderate lacing. Nose is coffee, chocolate, caramel, slightly smokey. Taste follows suit with a mild molasses sweetness tempering roasted malt and bitter coffee. Full body and low carbonation, with a creamy mouth feel and dry finish. Now thatís a stout - this is what Guinness wishes it was. (Yes, I once gave Guinness the same rating Iím giving this one. That was then, this is now. Deal with it. Iíll re-review a Guinness sometime and put it where it belongs.) Iíd love to have this on a nitro tap to really amp up the creaminess, but itís pretty decent just as it is. The oatmeal definitely tempers the flavour, giving it a fuller, rounder aspect. This can rightly take its place as one of the best Canadian beers around.
