I'm planning to brew a Coffee Oatmeal Stout in a couple of weeks and was curious about what kind of coffee beans most people use in their homebrews. I was thinking about roasting some beans myself maybe.

I use a double French roast. Very dark, very mellow. I use about 5 oz. of coarsely cracked beans in secondary for aroma, then add brewed coffee to taste at packaging time.
