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.

This bad guy has been sitting in my fridge for 6 months since buying it at Allagash. Never seems to be a good time to drink a large bottle of 11% beer by mtwelfth. What the hell, I may as well ruin everyone's weekend and drink it tonight. Wow, the smell is overpowering. A bit of an orangish intro as you drink it, but there is a bit of an odd odor. Maybe this is too old now. Great soothing that though - can see this being great on a cold night. Very yeasty bomb that is nice, but not sure I get a ton of bourbon out of this. 11% bit too much for me. I love Allagash, but this isn't for me.

"Hints" of bourbon is correct, at least with this bottle. Would have liked a more pronounced bourbon influence but that may be bottle specific, too. Only thing that detracted from my giving it a perfect score!
