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.

Bottle from a shop in Cali but can't remember where. Big cork and caged bomber dated "Bottling June 27, 2013." Pours a beautiful clear golden color with a tall fluffy white head. Not a lot of aroma to speak of, some sweet pears, banana, honey, yeast, and a hint of bourbon for sure. Heavy oak up front flavor with some light vanilla and coconut. This fades into honey and light sweet fruits and banana midpalate and down the throat and leaves an oaky vanilla honey flavor on the palate for a while. Slick palate with adequate carbonation. On the heavy side for the style as expected to stand up to bourbon barrels. Overall this was an interesting treat but I don't think I would go for it again. I don't really get the big love for this one.
