Scottish 80- (Export) w Oatmeal

Yeah, I need to work on the title. With this beer I'm not necessarily going to far away from the Scottish Ale style. But I really like the malt profile and aroma of this beer style. Plus I really enjoy a good amount of body and a nice thick head on my beer and I have not reached that by just raising my mash temperature. Also with a high mash temperature I don't want this beer to finish too sweet but that shouldn't be a problem with Cal Ale WLP001. So this beer is basically the bigger, thicker brother of my 70- Schilling I brewed last. I made sure to keep the oatmeal around 10% to make sure I will have a good mash runoff.
