This was inspired by some tasty oatmeal/ginger cookies I made. The recipe is based on Jamil's oatmeal stout recipe, but modded a bit in an attempt to get a bit more chocolate flavor.

The ginger is rather subtle; this beer does not scream ginger, and it has no ginger heat. I think that if you added 2-3 ounces of ginger in the boil you could get some heat, but I haven't tested. The ginger was grated, thrown in at flame-out and then left in the beer until I kegged it.
