Three Taverns Helm’s Deep, “the monster” returns

Three Taverns Helm's Deep

Three Taverns Helm’s Deep returns to the Decatur, Georgia brewery’s lineup again on December 17th.

This imperial stout was initially a long time coming. Ahead of the original release in 2016, the crew at Three Taverns has been aging this monster in various bourbon barrels, looking for the perfect oaky compliment.

The 2016 edition found a perfect pairing in 8 year old Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. Helm’s Deep is their “thickest and chewiest beer to date” according to brewery founder Brian Purcell. (Note: we believe this year’s edition is also aged in 8 year barrels.)

Long hidden in the deep shadows of eight-year-old bourbon barrels, this full-bodied imperial stout emerges thick as the blackest night. An intestinal dark malt complexity with notes of chocolate and vanilla leads to a labyrinth of flavors saturated in vanilla and oak.

750 milliliter bottles of Three Taverns Helm’s Deep will be available starting at 3 pm at the brewery, and has not sold out by close on Sunday evening.

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft. Limited to 600 bottles.
Debut: 12/17/16
Latest Return: 12/17/17

13% ABV
