Brasserie McAuslan Brewery St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout
I love stout. Just love rich, thick beers. Yes, I'm a Guinness man. I like St. Ambroise - really enjoyed their pale ale. Took the advice of the gent at the Beer Store - unfortunately, this is brewed in Quebec, so it doesn't fit in to my search for an Ontario beer. But, I was really tempted. Really tempted. Because this beer is spectacular.
Dark colour, soy sauce. Mousse is brown, very fine. Has all the incredible roasted character I'm looking for in a stout, deliciously bitter espresso, caramel aromas and flavours. Long finish. This beer is wonderful - stout is one of those beers that people have a hard time understanding, which is a shame. A profound beer, that dammit, is not from Ontario.
Still on the search for a profound Ontario beer.DF
