While in Quebec's Old City I had a chance to try the Stout. This is the BEST Oatmeal Stout that I've every drank... The color was black and black can be in a stout. The smell of roasted malts and a combination of all the components has an over powering flavor.

The best was to explain this, is by what the bottle label say's. "This intensely black ale carries strong hints of expresso and chocolate. The oatmeal contributes body and ensures a long-lasting moca-colored head. If you like stout, you will love St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout."

Ingredidients: Water, malted balrely, toasted barley, toasted wheat, flacked oats, flaked corn, hops.

Like I said, I explain the complexity of this stout. You have to drink to understand a great, great Oatmeal Stout.

Wow! Impressive. I tried this masterpiece..er beer...on July 27, 2007 at the 'Beer Bistro' in Toronto. It came to me in a glass (on draught) and appeared to be chocolate milk with a thick head. The beer was dark brown, with a medium brown head that lasted throughout the beer. The aroma was a combination of malt, chocolate, and fruits. The mouthfeel was full bodied, and not as thick as I was expecting. Nor was there a whole lot of carbonation. The flavour was full of malt, chocolate, and plums. Overall, this was a truly great experience, and completely surprised me that a stout could provide this.

A- Pours a pitch black color with a nice 2 finger fluffy dark cocoa colored head. As I drink this beer, I get nice rings of lacing distinguishing each sip.

S- Woah.. Huge sweet german chocolate cake notes, loads of cream, some subtle dark fruit, chocolate graham crackers, some caramel.

T- Starts out with a huge silky smooth chocolate, with hints of caramel, chocolate graham crackers, cream. The finish is very dry bakers chocolate, with some subtle sweetness here and there and dry hops, some roastiness, and hints of smoke.

M- Silky smooth. The finish just sticks around for days!

D- Woah... just wow. A beer with this much delicious character at 5%?! Damn.. Will drink again!
