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.

Wow- best tripel in so time. Super smooth for 11% would give any Trappist a run for flavor.

Remarkable beer! The oak barrels really shined through on this! Beautiful straw color with a great head of creamy foam. Intense vanilla and belgian yeast in the aroma and the flavor is an amazing balance of banana, hop, bourbon, and something peppery. Wow, wow.
