Beer added by: Todd on 04-05-2004

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: Pours a hazy straw color with a smattering of pure white head which fizzles out fairly quickly to a persistent ring. Leaves a few ephemeral streaks of lacing.

S: Lots of oak and a touch of vanilla bean, banana frosting, and sweetish malt.

T: Loads of tannic oak which dry the mouth. Tastes slightly overextracted. Some sweetish malt and a touch of vanilla. A little boozy, esp. on the finish.

M: Soft, light carbonation with a little bite. Medium-full body.

O: They overdid with the barrel treatment; I imagine this is what adding oak cubes or spirals to the fermenter tastes like. Kind of a one dimensional beer.
