St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout


5%ABV / 45 IBU / $13.55 per 6x341mL (BB 16 AL 30)


Near-black body with auburn highlights at edge of glass. Medium carbonation with visible bubbles. Large almost lager-like head.


Dark chocolate, figs, soy sauce, bread/muffin, some nutiness


Bitter with fig focus initially. Some darker chocolate at finish. As beer warms, hops become clearer with classic Cascade notes of citrus appearing way in the background.


Medium-viscous (think Guiness Extra)


A very good sessionable stout. Much more complexity than I would have expected at 5%. Where the stout has backed off somewhat from the roasted and coffee notes it has let dark fruit an nutty qualities shine through.

Food Paring

Red meat or heavier vegetarian fair. I would recommend something like a pepper steak to balance the sweetness in the stout. As per most stouts, chocolate-based desserts would also work quite well.
