Default Putting the Chocolate in the Chocolate Oatmeal Stout

I'm planning on making a Chocolate Oatmeal Stout and i was curious about different methods to go about this. Ive seen recipes that people put coca powder into the secondary or people boil chocolate nibs during the boil. I was wondering how these different methods affect the finished product and which people prefer. I'm planning on mine to be a noticeable in the finished beer but i also don't want it to taste like your drinking chocolate milk.

I usually go half and half. I do about 5-6oz of cocao nibs in the boil at 5 minutes, and then 5-6oz of chocolate power in the secondary. Either way works fine. You'll get a more noticable chocolate flavor if you use it in the fermenter. In my opinion, if you boil it, it adds a more "natural" chocolate flavor. Sort of like using a lot of chocolate malt.
