Had this one time before at their brewery and liked it a lot. Latitude 33 is an underrated brewery in my opinion and I would like to try everything I can from them. Glad to finally review this one.
Poured a black color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. Below average lacing. Very good retention. (Sight - 3.75)
Smelled pitch black coffee, ashtray, caramel, hazelnut, roasty nuts, oatmeal, toasted brown sugar, thick molasses, char wood and hints of licorice. (Smell - 3.75)
Taste was even better than the nose, getting black coffee, dark chocolate, hazlelnut, oatmeal, molasses, char wood, ashtray, dry cocoa nibs, toasted brown sugar and black licorice. Did not taste 8.5 percent. (Taste - 4.50)
Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, roasty finish. (Feel - 4.50)
Was really good. Taste was so much better than the nose. Loved it. (Overall - 4.25)

On tap at Stone Liberty Station. It pours black with a light brown head. The aroma has deep dark chocolate and bread. Light coffee notes. The flavor has more dark chocolate, roasted malt, lighter coffee and creamer. Velvety body. Super tasty stuff.

Nitro at Barrel Republic. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige and lots of lacing. Smells like fresh roasted dark coffee, burnt toast, burnt malt. Tastes like dark coffee, booze, light spice, dry roasted malt.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the brewery on 3/21/2013. This Imperial Oatmeal Stout pours a dark amber drown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white/tan foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasty malts. A medium to full bodied stout. The malts are roasty, chocolate and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Hint of sweet chocolate at the finish. Nice fuller oatmeal mouthfeel. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Big sweet malts and sweet espresso coffee, cream, chocolate, and lightly roasted malts. Maybe just a hint to sweet for some folks, but I found it very drinkable.

On tap at O’Brien’s. Way too dry, though looks great lace sheet. OK, but not a fan of dry stout, you would think oatmeal would enhance it.
