So, my first brew ever was an outmeal stout. It tastes okay but leaves me wondering how close I got it to what it should taste like. So, could someone point me to a commercial version of this beer that I could get a six pack of in the Pocono area of PA?

I'm not sure how widespread it is in the US, but McAuslan St. Ambroise Oatmeal Stout is a fantastic oatmeal stout.

i'd second samuel smith's. i've had some others that were good but can't remember off the top of my head. plus that should be relatively easy to find.

+ on the Samuel Smith. Or if you feel like coming into Philly, go to Triumph, their oatmeal stout is my favorite, and their best beer if you ask me.

Definitely Samuel Smith. Its is so smooth its like silk, and the flavor is perfectly balanced. Just brewed a clone of it myself, praying it is even in the ballpark.

sam smith is great. cooper's also makes one that i like.

if you have a trader joe's around, they've got "stockyard oatmeal stout" in right now. it's not the best oatmeal stout there is, but it'll get you in the ballpark.
