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.

mcberko (11165) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 From a bottle and on tap, many times. Pours jet black with a frothy cascading brown head. Nose is full of oats, some burnt unsweetened cocoa and maybe a touch of coffee. Flavour is full of oatmeal, some metallic tinges, dry bitter cocoa and some roasted coffee beans. Palate is thick, heavy on oatmeal, leaving a fairly astringent finish. Highly drinkable and one of the better Canadian stouts out there.

Bottle, thanks so much to robinvboyer! DELICIOUS! Pours dark black and nice and viscous. Nice brown and creamy head. Lacing is phenomenal. Smell is nice with tons of chocolate flavor. Tongue is chocolate, sweet coffee, oats, wood, and some nice residual sweetness and a good balance of hops. I even notice some hints of smoke. Great stout. I want more!!

Scopey (10641) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Keg at the Craft Beer Market, Calgary. It pours jet black, with a thick, light tan head. The nose is roasted malt, charcoal, coffee and cocoa powder. The taste is roasted malt, rich coffee, charred wood, cocoa powder, subtle acidity, creaminess and light treacle, with a smooth, dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well made, great balance and flavour. Drinks all to easily....

hopdog (10472) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with beerhugger (thanks!). Poured a dark black with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, and coffe. Additional flavors of light oatmeal. A little smoky as well. Smooth body and very easy to drink.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2003
This beer rocks! The aroma holds huge notes of milk chocolate and hickory smoke with lesser notes of vanilla, dark coffee, cinnamon and toasted nuts. This stout pours thick and black. Even when held up to extremely bright light, this beer is black, black, black! A lazer beam shot from the head of a "frickin’ shark" couldn’t pass through this glass of liquid fudge. Large, rocky, deeply tanned head. Mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The flavor is extremely well balanced. Bursts of smoke, espresso and dark chocolate up front. Excellent blend of acidity, mild bitterness and a light tartness on the backside. Just a hint of vanilla on the tongue. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation and a short crisp, clean, dry finish. This gem has a balanced flavor rarely found in an Oatmeal Stout. Sweet Stout??? I don’t think so.

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2002
Thanks to DougShoemaker for this one! Outstanding Stout, although I still like Sam Smith’s a little more. My only negative comment about this one is that the alcohol flavor was not hidden as well as it could have been (or do we call that ’bitterness’?). Roased aroma and nice coffee flavoring. Almost black with great lacing. I am going to try to hunt this one down again sometime.

Black with huge light brown head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, caramel, coffee and chocolate notes. Flavor has good complexity and goes the same way.

Sammy (10322) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 nice chocolate lack color and taste. Thick consistency. Nice bittersweet chocolate/expresso aftertaste with a tad of sweetness.. Can sip and enjoy. Had later on draft-very smooth
