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.

In the cool months, there’s nothing more inviting than a good Oatmeal Stout. For the most part, St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout hits all the right notes. While I didn’t get the "long-lasting" head the description promises, I was pleased with the black color and brown layer of foam. This stout has aromas of cocoa, strong coffee, licorice, and cream. The taste was excellent with notes of chocolate, coffee, cream, black licorice, and spice. While the body wasn’t as silky smooth as I’d like for an Oatmeal Stout, it was still impressive. While I hold a certain English brewer in the highest esteem for this style, I’d happily drink this Canadian option again.

Maybe st-ambroise’s best. This is a quality stout. the low alcohol level promotes easy drinking. Love it.

Pours a finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is rich: molasses, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted and toasted malt. Awesome. The taste is pure darkness: black licorice, bitter chocolate, black coffee and a little salty smoke to finish. The texture has a fair amount of fizz. It’s pretty great.

Strong dark smell, all roasted malt, very slightly smokey, touch bitter on finish, wish it had a less watery finish, slightest bit of licorice,

Bottle. A- Tobacco, roasty, smoke, soy sauce, coffee, cocoa, malty. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Roasty, bitter cocoa, subtle smokiness, malty. P- Full body, thin texture, average carbonation, smokey finish. O- I love it and yet I don’t. The aroma is amazing but fades fairly fast along with the head. The body is thin and takes away from the overall beer. Not quite as smooth or creamy as I want for an oatmeal stout.

Mild nose and rich toffee and dark caramel flavors. Heavy mouthfeel and just enough hops to finish cleanly.

This was mainly drunk by my wife, with me sampling it. It is a joint review. A beautiful jet black body wears a mocha coloured head. Aromas are of roasted malts and cocoa nibs. Nice dark chocolate presence. Oatmeal presence seeping out as it warms. Tastes veer into the bitter coffee a bit. Actually a tad of red fruit peels on the swallow. This isn’t the best stout we’ve drunk, but it is solid across the board in appearance, aromas and tastes, and definitely worth a try.

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.
