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.

This is quite excellent. Very thick and aggressive yet the flavor is quite nice. Roasted, some chocolate with a tinge of coffee at the very end. Good stuff at a great price

jmgreenuk (7683) - 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.
