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.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, - APR 6, 2009
Bouteille de 341 ml. Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur noire épaisse avec un col de mousse cappucino qui s’impose du début jusqu’à la fin de la dégustation. Au nez on respire des arômes de chocolat noir, de café-moka, de grain toasté, de houblon floral et d’avoine. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte des saveurs de grain grillé, de café, de chocolat noir et de houblon bien présent. Excellent!

341ml bottle from LCBO, Parkway Mall, Scarborough, ON. 5% Alc. / vol. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with one finger of lasting tanned head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma of caramel, coffee and minimal notes of booze. Taste matches aroma with a dry finish. Medium carbonation.

Pours nearly jet black with only the slightest hints of deep cola brown around the edges, a fat finger of tan head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, and moderate lacing. Nose is coffee, chocolate, caramel, slightly smokey. Taste follows suit with a mild molasses sweetness tempering roasted malt and bitter coffee. Full body and low carbonation, with a creamy mouth feel and dry finish. Now that’s a stout - this is what Guinness wishes it was. (Yes, I once gave Guinness the same rating I’m giving this one. That was then, this is now. Deal with it. I’ll re-review a Guinness sometime and put it where it belongs.) I’d love to have this on a nitro tap to really amp up the creaminess, but it’s pretty decent just as it is. The oatmeal definitely tempers the flavour, giving it a fuller, rounder aspect. This can rightly take its place as one of the best Canadian beers around.

Smells great with a hint of dark chocolate, smooth taste not much of an after taste. Those that like darker beers would enjoy.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1978) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
On tap at the brewery terrace as part of a 12$ tasting set. A cola black pour with red highlights and a creamy tan head. Rich cocoa and toasted oats aroma. Smooth creamy body and a fairly full mouthfeel. The taste is quite roasty, a bit of coffee grounds, cocoa an toasted/roasted malts. Very nice, seems like a restrained use of black patent malts.

manuelMTL (52) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
From 473 ml can. Pour is pitchblack with huge tan head. Nose is roasted malts with chocolate and dark chocolate notes. Some light caramel sweetness, too. A little metallic. Favours are again roasted malts with a punch of sourness. Long metallic finish with light bitterness. Pretty light body. Solid oatmeal stout, but I expected more.

Thought I would review an old favourite. For a 6-pack with an MSRP of $9.99, this is a hell of a beer, and my go-to stout. It looks great: jet black with a frothy tan head. It smells great: coffee, chocolate, caramel. It tastes great: chocolate, caramel and a bit of treacle, with beautiful bitter coffee finish. Certainly nothing revolutionary, but a really well-executed oatmeal stout, at a terrific price point.

jrodooo5 (1001) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Beautiful black pour w/ a big mocha head that leaves lacing. The aroma is a great blend between chocolate & roasted notes. The taste is quite similar as it mixes bitterness & sweetness exceptionally! It feels light & creamy on the palate. This is one damn good stout!

Une référence depuis tant d’années... J’adore l’équilibre là-dedans; il y a juste assez de tout. C’est bon, point à la ligne!

Draft - Nitro - bitter chocolate and roast malts. Jet black with a rich creamy light brown head. Chocolate, coffee and roast malts with a creamy light bitter finish. Very nice as usual from these guys.

Can. A nice, well-balanced stout, the obligatory hints of coffee, nice foam and gentle finish.
