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.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Very dark brown, mid-tan head. Roasty aroma concentrated with light-roast coffee. Flavor is full-on coffee, pretty dry. Lots of acidity and seems kinda a one-trick pony with the coffee roastiness. A little bit of medicinal flavor. Thin, tart finish with a lot of malt dustiness and prominent alcohol. Comes across as a dry kahlua.

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 (734) - 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.

maneliquor (3479) - 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 (2126) - 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 (4269) - 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 (1581) - 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.

Bottle. Given the purveyor from whom I bough this, I’d not be surprised if it’s aged on the retail aisle for quite some time. This opened almost completely flat. No fizz, almost no head. There’s 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 it’s cold again. (#5950, 3/29/2015)
