Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Curieux was the first foray into barrel aging. Curieux is made by aging our Tripel Ale in Jim Beam bourbon barrels for eight weeks in our cold cellars. The aged beer is then blended back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting beer is soft with coconut and vanilla notes, with hints of bourbon.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Purchased at Beach Front Liquor, San Clemente CA
Bottled October 25, 2013
Popped and poured into an Allagash Chalice

A: clear amber-honey color, effervescent with a 1.5 inch head. Settled to .25 inch and retained as I allowed the beer to warm slightly. Quite beautiful.

N: roasted malt slightly sweet, hard to sense any bourbon. Not what I expected, very soft of the nose. Pleasant.

T: HUGE burst of flavor on initial taste. A super-intensified version of the nose. Sweet caramel malt on the tongue with unmistakable whiskey tones and yeast. Truly dramatic to sip. Bourbon lingers on the palette. Mouthfeel a little bubbly, I think I would love to try something like this with a heavier body. But it definitely holds up.

This is a must-try for even those not thrilled with this style. I'm hooked already.
