So I love stouts and I love oatmeal and I enjoyed Firestone-Walker's Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout but I was wondering what other Oatmeal Stouts to try or any recipe suggestions for a homebrew Oatmeal Stout!

this is what i am brewing this saturday. from www.windriverbrew.com

Barrons Oatmeal Stout An old style that is recently receiving more attention. We have gotten requests for an Oatmeal Stout for our kit lineup so here it is. The oats add body and mouth-feel to this beer. This is a smooth rich ale that is light on the hops to allow the full malty character to come through. The kit contains: 6 lbs. Dark malt extract, 1 oz. Kent Goldings bittering hops, 1/2 oz. Fuggles aroma hops, 1/2 lb. Black Patent & 1/2 lb. Flaked Oats grain blend, yeast and priming sugar.
[10 lbs] (0068)

With 1084 Irish Wyeast. [13 1/4 lbs] (0010Y)

The classic example of the style is Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout.

Yep Sam Smith's is tastey. I enjoy Anderson Valley's Barney Flats OMS as well. I'm brewing a Sam Smith clone this weekend as well

Founder's Breakfast Stout and Bell's Double Cream Stout are two of my favorites! Not sure if they're exclusively 'oatmeal' or not, but if you like oatmeal, you'll like those.

I also have a brewers best extract kit of oatmeal stout bottle conditioning as we speak. I bottled it on Feb 1st, so i think i'm going to try one tonight.
