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.

Silky smooth and inky black full bodied and just a bit earthy. This is an enticing Oatmeal Stout that i’ll come back to again and again. The aroma is more cocoa but the palate has a rich coffee roasty thing going on. The only hops I notice are hanging out in the background with just a touch of citrus/herbs. It has a sweet/bitter balance on the palate that reminds me of a Moroccan sidewalk cafe I hung out at in a previous life. My little boy loved to tag along and dip the over-sized sugar cubes in my shot of undiluted Moroccan style espresso. Don’t know if that helps, but its sorta like that. And if you’re wondering what a coffee saturated block of sugar looks like -- its the exact color of the frothy head on this wonderful oatmeal stout.

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

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.

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.
