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.

Poured on-tap at the brewery tasting room, the beer is a slightly hazed, honey-gold coloring with a white filmy ring on the surface. Nose of grain and sweetness, with a heavy bourbon overlay. There is spicing that helps to cut the richness in the aromas. Flavors of bourbon initially, with booze and warmth, followed by a toasted grain backbone, honey and vanilla sweetness, and subtle earthiness. Smooth and surprisingly light in body, there is a boozy and rich aftertaste with a slick, slow lingering finish. Wow!
