thanks for the suggestions fellas.. i think i will go out of my 'comfort zone', and get a samuel smith oatmeal stout. both of you cant be wrong...?

ring- i have not seen those other stout's you mentioned. we are VERY limited in what kind of beers we can get out here. i think on my next trip to austin or dallas, i am gonna take a beer 'wish list', and go to a few stores and just see what i can find.

i will let ya know what i think of the oatmeal stout..
