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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Orange, a bit hazy, with a somewhat creamy white head.

S: Oak, burnt sugar, vanilla, tripelesque spices, ligther fruits in the nose.

T: Vanilla, oak, orange, chocolate(?).

M: Medium bodied, quite smooth.

O: This isn't the first type of beer I'd put in a bourbon barrel. I feel like Scotch or rum might have been more interesting, but it was a delicious beer, nonetheless.
