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.

Bottled December 2011. Consumed NYE 2013. Done side by side with a fresh bottle. Major improvement with the aged bottle. The beer is more well balanced with the bourbon, I would never complain about Curieux it's one if my favorite beers and a local classic. But compared to the 2011, it was sweeter and more pronounced. The qualities of the triple and the bourbon are well blended to form a real classic.
