Purchased at the LCBO for $2.80 for a 473ml can. Enjoyed at 7deg C in a tulip

A- Very good. Very dark. A head popped up and was gone but the carbonation look was the opposite way it should have been.... ??

S- Pretty good and malty.

T- Very light but it's all there baby. The recipe is a watery Founder's Breakfast Stoutie

M- Here is where the light alcohol percentage and lightness on the recipe ingredients hurts this beer. More more more. Come on. The 70's song Andrea True sang!

O- Very good. With work this would be a killer money maker

Food Pairing

This wonderful beginning of a good beer went well with...... Tacos!!

Enjoy

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/4 inch brown head that doesn't retain well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a tiny center patch of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves clots behind.

S- Dark roasted malt brings some chocolate, char and vanilla notes.

T- Flavor follows suit with less sweetness than expected and there are some smoky tones as well. Moderately bitter with a charry aftertaste.

M- Quite thick with medium carbonation and a full body.

O- This stout is more roast-forward with the chocolaty sweetness being an afterthought. Nothing incredible but I could see myself enjoying this one again.

Today I had the chance to pick up St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout because it was on special. Here in Montreal Canada the pack of 6 was for 8,99$ instead of 11,99$
So the look of the beer is really dark. Even if you put the glasse on the light.
The smell of it is fabulous. One of my first beer that have some much flavour. You have that strong espresso and chocolate flavour. A note of coffee also.
The taste on the beginning is wonderful. You don't taste the alcohol at all. You have that taste of chocolate, espresso, coffee mocka, that roasted wheat. On the beginning the taste is a 5/5 and the same goes for the smell no doubt about it. Now, I do have a problem with the finish. Right after u drink it you have that strong kicking finish. I think all the flavour is coming at the same time and it's not really pleasant. But it last just for 5 seconds when your saliva is taking over but after 10 or 15 seconds of drinking it, you have that smooth taste of chocolate and coffee. It's really pleasant. If the finish was not too hard on the kick I will give it a perfect 5/5.
So overall would I recommend it ? What you expect Absolutely YES. Go for it and crab a pack of 6 or 12 if you find it. It's an amazing beer. Much better than a Rickard's dark or even a Guinness Original. (If you hate the taste of coffee, don't take this beer), but overall damn what a beer !
