Orpheus Brewing's newest concoction, The 12th Labor, is now available in the tasting room at the brewery. This one isn't for the faint of liver: The imperial stout comes with a whopping 13 percent abv.
The official description of the new brew:
"The 12th Labor is an overpowering 13 percent Imperial Stout with intensely layered flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, and dark fruit. You'll be lulled to dreams of a distant past you can't quite remember in a world teeming with noise and flesh. With each sip, The 12th Labor is a struggle at the edge of darkness."
Orpheus recommends pairing with bold flavors that can stand up to the beer. Think dried cherries, spaghetti Carbonara, and burnt ends of brisket.
