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. Youíll feel like you are sipping the nectar of the gods on Mount Olympus. May Zeus smile upon you.

maneliquor (3474) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2015
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

Imaena (2086) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. This is a solid impy that I feel really highlights the roasted malt facet of the style. Could use some depth on the hopping side but good all around.

Cybercat (4086) - Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pours opaque coffee black with a thick, rather fine-bubbled, persistent tan head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma has quality coffee, roast malt, molasses, and shy chocolate notes. Flavor takes all the tones of the aroma and tosses in caramel, miso and subtle licorice, as well as pumping up the chocolate a bit. Viscous texture has good fizz and leaves a roast malt and coffee finish that has more than a hint of miso. Bold, rich, distinctive - this one is likely to blow you away.

Beerenberger (1567) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2015
Aroma liquorice and cola. The pour is a midnight black with a tan ring and no lacing. The taste is coffee, and dark chocolate, hints of liquorice and hop bitter finish. A slight surpy, in a nice way, finiahsl Medium-full body and medium carbonation. Overall, a nice Imperial stout. Well done Left Coaast.

Gachupines (1091) - USA - APR 11, 2015
Black with a dark tan head. Aroma is boozy, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is is powerfully boozy and bigger chocolate. Some coffee in the finish. Wife: 3..75

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle. Given the purveyor from whom I bough this, Iíd not be surprised if itís aged on the retail aisle for quite some time. This opened almost completely flat. No fizz, almost no head. Thereís also little aroma. But this still drinks with an oomph, and a big coffee-laden flavor holds up quite well. Makes me want to move where itís cold again. (#5950, 3/29/2015)

Looks like a stout. Dark chocolate, coffee, a touch of caramel. Fine but nothing new.

ChainGangGuy (4559) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Appearance: Slips out a black body with a quickly receding (but whatís left lasts) beige head. Smell: Well roasted malts with espresso extract giving a liquory hint, powdered anise, chocolate Whoppers, mild hops hinting a little bit of citrus rind. Taste: A start of strong espresso-flecked roasted malts glazed with undoubtedly bitter chocolate. Relatively light sweetness. Low dark fruitiness. Steely, floral, citrusy hops with a growing, encroaching bitterness. Drying, bittered, slightly boozy burn of a finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel overall. Overall: Iíd hoped for more. No, itís not bad, but it falls far short of so many great stouts out there today.

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2015
Pours pure black with a small light tan head. Nose shows coffee, sweet-smelling bready malt and liquorice. Flavours include heavy roast, liquorice and coffee. Finishes with a balanced bittersweet finish.

Bottle. Dark pour with tan head. Smells of dark malts and slight hops. Tastes of the same with slight smoke ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
