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.

A- This beer is cloudy with a dark golden brown color.

S- It has a very pleasant smell. Not overbearing and not too sweet, and a little sour.

T- The taste is very balanced with a slightly sour taste. Very smooth vanilla and coconut start with a Bourbon finish.

MF- Moderately carbonated with excellent texture and great consistency in flavor.

O- Honestly, this is one of the most balanced beers I have ever had. The qualities in this beer are perfect. It is not lacking in any category. At $24 a bottle, the experience is definitely worth it. I find this to be one of the absolute best beers I have ever had. Enjoy slightly chilled for better flavor.

Shared 5-way with family, poured into the Allagash coolship chalice

A: Beautiful golden trippel color with some floaties near the end of the bottle. Slightly hazy with big puffy white head. Lacing and retention outstanding.

S: White pepper, yeasty dough and brediness with a slight tang of barrel.

T: Everything in the nose, except the tang on the nose is muted on the taste. Imperceptible metallic note on warming as well.

M: Impossibly light for a barrel aged beer. Perfectly dry finish. Vapors fuel heat sensation, but it is expected for an 11% ale.

O: I would have this on a semi-regular basis if possible. Just outstanding.
