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, 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!!

hopscotch (8540) - 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.

hopdog (8530) - 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.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Bottled - Smokeless Joes Toronto. Aroma has some roastiness but is not particularly pronounced. The colour is a fantastic black with a good head. The flavour also has some roasty notes but not enough for me for a stout. I was suprised to see it is a top 50 beer as I found it quite thin.

NielsenRatings (8275) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Pours a beautiful jet-black colour with a dark brown head. Leaves a bit of nice lacing on the glass. Great nose of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Very rich and chocolatey in the mouth with a nice bitter finish. This is a great one... puts Guinness to shame!
