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.

Had this at a tasting, 10oz pour from tap.

Easily the best tripel I've had, but still... not a truly great beer. It was extra creamy and had a different taste than most Belgians I've had - but not boozy at all.
