Brewed by:
Allagash Brewing Company
Maine, United States

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
First brewed back in 2004, Curieux was our first foray into barrel aging. To make Curieux, we take our Tripel and let it age in bourbon barrels for seven weeks. Once that time is up, we take the beer out of our cold cellars and blend it back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting rich, golden ale features smooth notes of coconut, vanilla, and a hint 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.
