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.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada vai RCLS. Didn’t realize I haven’t rated this. I would say best price to taste ratio available in Canada. Cheaper than Guinness and one of the best ’non’ Imperial/Russian stouts I’ve tried. Jet black, light brown head. Dark chocolate, raisin and faint spruce aroma. Great texture, smooth, not overly sweet, with a final bitter hop finish with just enough resin to balance everything. Great.

Extraordinary beer. I don't know what happened but I rated this here before and it's gone now. I loved it then and I love it now, Reuben James. appearances a light brown, big fluffy head with lots of lace and an opaque brown black color. Aroma is a very volatile blend of cocoa dark leather coffee yeast rum. Flavor is like aroma fairly dry some tobacco just enough carbonic tang. Excellent palate. I'd forgotten how good this beer is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black stout with a nice dark tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, some licorice, very roasty. Medium bodied, creamy but with quite a fizzy carbonation. Not too much sweetness in this one, has a nice dark chocolate flavor with some hints of black coffee, this bitterness is very present as well. Very good stout, for any time.

I was looking for this for a while. Definitely worth the wait. Very smooth and flavourful. One of the best I’ve had in the style.

Purchased at Beer Temple in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a cold Tuesday night at home. Appearance is a moderately thick pitch black with a nice light tan head. Aroma has a lot going on - roasted chocolate, licorice, oat, coffee, cocoa, very nice. Taste is real good. Equal parts licorice, chocolate, and coffee, finishes lightly bitter and rather dry, fantastic. One of the best balanced stouts I’ve had yet.

12 oz bottle pours like black coffee with a medium mocha head and slightly oily lacing. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, caramel and leather. Flavor is mild to medium bitter with a slight sweetness in the finish. Tasty!

Cannette de 473ml de stout. Arôme intense de torréfaction et notes chocolaté. Au gout on a une certaine acidité une belle torréfaction et des notes de fer. Meilleure de gorgée en gorgée

Still my favourite stout, of any variety. Rated from a bottle, poured into an english pint glass. Pitch black in colour, with a thin, café-au-lait head and slight lacing on the glass. Aromas of chocolate, toasted wheat and coffee. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, not quite as heavy as some Imperials I’ve had but more substantial than the Guinness yardstick and most other Irish stouts. Flavours of strong black coffee and bittersweet chocolate, some vanilla and sweet caramel hiding in the background. Hops show up late in the tasting game, almost there just to cleanse the palate. Low alcohol makes it very approachable. Really a wonderful stout, right up there with the best of the rest.

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Robe de veuve avec un mince col de mousse moka très durable, à bulles de tailles variées. Arôme de cacao et de café torréfié, on sent aussi la céréale. Très crémeuse en bouche, elle ouvre sur une puissante note d’expresso pour finir sur une note de chocolat noir, amer, le tout sans jamais être agressive. C’est rare, une noire si sessionable.
