At Left Coast Brewing Co. we pride ourselves in being one of the leading craft brewers. With that being said we would like to celebrate our rich heritage of brewing with Ale Epeteios. This imperial stout anniversary brew is a dark full bodied stout with flavors of dark chocolate and coffee coming from the highest quality imported specialty malts. It is a malty blend followed with a little kick. You’ll feel like you are sipping the nectar of the gods on Mount Olympus. May Zeus smile upon you.

jmgreenuk (6500) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Mont Kiara. Poured a clear dark brown with a round frothy light tan head. The aroma is roasty malt, chocolate, light dry coffee. The flavour is moderate liqourice bitter, light sweet with a big rich smooth alcoholic malt liqourice palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Just like an impy stout should be.

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Tastes like dried dark fruits, booze, chocolate, and woody malt. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like booze, chocolate, woody malt with light ash, and dark fruits.

slowrunner77 (8373) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 23, 2015
dark roasted malts and coffee, with hints of dark fruit and anise on the nose. pleasantly warming at first, gets a little hot by the end. would like either or on the roast/coffee or the fruit/anise. OK.

Padron4KM (763) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2015
22 oz bottle. Pitch black, with a thin tan head and spotty lace.
Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, hints of molasses and anise.
Flavor starts sweet, chocolate, coffee, licorice, molasses, but finishes with a subtle bitterness that keeps it balanced. ABV is well hidden.

I bought this beer for $6.,49, even the beer guy said for that money, 9% imperial stout it was worth trying...he was so right. Not only is this a good priced beer, it’s one of the best bangs for your buck. Ratebeer really needs to have a bang for your buck/over-priced list for example this beer with it’s bitter sweet chocolate, high coffee bean, malty notes really is one of the best buys I have made all year. Like Pliny which I buy out here for as low as $9 but is incredible, the price point for such a good beer really bumps my rating up. Give ths one a shot it’s well worth it.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Went in with low expectations after a few mates said it was no good. Surprised me because I dig this. Fairly sweet and typically american with that linear token vanilla note throughout but it all comes together nicely with some dark fruits and plummy sweetness. I enjoyed it
