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.

11/28/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC so it's a real treat. Not your usual triple. Very mellow. Rorschach test lacing is picturesque. Rumors of coconut on the nose are verifiable but not off-putting.

Sweeter then I would have thought, but that's what I get from assuming. I'm of 2 minds here. It's notable but not memorable.
