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.

2008 bottle that I had in the cellar.

A - Poured a nice cloudy orange. Very little head, almost immediately dissipated.

S - Strong scent of bourbon. You'd think that this came from Tennessee not Portland, Maine.

T - Fruity notes off set by the strong taste of bourbon. I've been cellaring this for close to 3 years now. I'm sure the taste is extremely different now from where it once was.

D - Didn't realize this was 11%. The alcohol is definitely evident but it doesn't overpower the brew. Goes down smooth and warms your insides :-)

M - Smooth, very little carbonation, tastes like a cask offering that has been bottled. I was concerned that I had kept this in the cellar too long but that is not the case. A very good beer.
