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.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a nice big creamy rocky light brown well lasting head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, biter chocolate, coffe and some liquorice. Good mouthfeel though I suspected a more creamy one. The flavour has a very pleasant roastiness with chocolate, coffee, oat, some smoke and dark fruits, The finish is quite roasty with some bitterness and coffee. A good stout but rather thin. It needs more body.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
It’s a pitch black beer with a huge, creamy and light brown head. The aroma has lots of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The flavour is smooth and round, but it also has a bitterness from the hard roasted malt, a light sourness from the oats and notes of chocolate and coffee. The finish is incredibly long and the flavour is developing from start to the end. It’s impressive that all that taste can be found in a beer with only 5% - well done!!! 1719

daknole (10045) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2008
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!!

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 4/27/08: Sampled in the presentation tent at WBF Raleigh. Dark black with a very large brown head. Strong oat aroma with banana and spice. Taste of oats, coffee, caramel. Light smokiness. Thick and chewy texture. Tongue-coating. 7/3/8/4/16/3.8

Rerate: 5/31/08... Bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville. Very dark pour with a one finger brown head, low head retention and no lacing. Sweet malty and nutty aroma with notes of oatmeal and a subtle smokiness. Taste is bitter coffee with the oats coming later. Just enough smoke to not be offensive to my rauschbier hating self. Yum. 6/3/8/4/15/3.6

hopscotch (9954) - 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.

adnielsen (9814) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of weihenweizen. Thanks! Pours a black appearance with a brown head. Anise, earthy, dark chocolate, mild coffee, a bit raisin aroma. Fairly roasty, moderately smoky, burnt chocolate malty, milk sugar, ashy, mild coffee flavor. A lot of ash and anise notes. Finishes fairly dry. Doesn’t blow my mind but pretty good.

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.
