3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from grocery store
Pours pitch black with very nice brown head, which remains.
chocolate and coffee notes, hints of vanilla. I’ve tried many other Oatmeal Stouts and this one always comes back as a point of reference. I can get a 6 pack for 7.99$ when on sale at local grocery store. An excellent beer.

thick, sweet, and chewy, the second black, bitter, and gainy, and the third a weird tart, sherry like note. Pretty complex

Nice creamy but dry aroma. Chocolate and dark malt. Thick black/Brown color with frothy dark brown head. Creamy, with a bit of chocolate and black liquorice. Dry but soothing finish. Kinda like the aroma in reverse. Nice.

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.

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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild nose and rich toffee and dark caramel flavors. Heavy mouthfeel and just enough hops to finish cleanly.

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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
