Beer added by: Todd on 04-05-2004

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.

750ml bottle poured into balloon snifter 14/6/14, cheers Kmat10 for sharing (from notes)

A golden orange, lots of bubbles floating up to a finger of foam that sits around for a couple sips leaving a few random spots of lace

S lots of wood but not a whole lot of bourbon, I guessed JD but have been told Beam was used, spicy Belgian yeast, some fruity notes, apple and banana, vanilla, some dry cereals and sugar I can't place

T more of the same, plenty of wet wood, sweet bourbon, yeasty, a little booze but very well concealed for 11%

M has some body for the color, creams up a little, faint heat on the way down, slick on the palate, woody finish

O smooth and easy drinking for 11%, interesting use of a barrel and they pulled it off, I can't recall having a BB triple before and it worked out well

I'm a little surprised this only spent 8 weeks in a barrel and was blended with fresh triple, lots of barrel and something I'd want to try again down the road
