Default Hops for a oatmeal stout

I like northern Brewer and Willamette in stouts.

edit; but i have also used a lot of noble hops in them. Look at the recipes for stouts, look at what people are using for what styles try them out if you like them change them up. I have done 5 stouts and I am always trying new flavors. I think i choose Northern Brewer and Willamette because those are the last ones I used

I like to use Magnum. High AA and very low flavor/aroma impact.

Target... They combine really well with Fuggles. I've used that combo in a few brews, with really great results.

I like using Cascade for my lighter bodied dry oatmeal stouts, it supplies sufficient bitterness and the flavors and aromas are a nice break from the usual.
