Allagash Brewing Company Curieux Bourbon Barrel Aged Strong Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Allagash Brewing Company Curieux Bourbon Barrel Aged Strong Ale. I had the opportunity to try this beer on tap at Portal in Oakland (here) and I highly recommend heading there to try this beer on tap as well as checking out their other tap handles and excellent food.
From the Allagash Brewing Company website: “Allagash Curieux was our 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.”
