Three Taverns Helm’s Deep will debut in bottles in December.
This imperial stout has been been in the works for a while. Not just from the amount of time it takes to age. The crew at Three Taverns have been aging this monster in various barrels, looking for the perfect barrel compliment. That found it 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.
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.
A ticketed event will be held at the brewery on December 17th at 12 pm. Tickets go on sale on Monday, December 12th, $45 dollars each.
