Allagash is a craft brewery located in New England that has a great selection of Belgian Ale like Allagash White and Grand Cru. This particular evening at La Trappe I had Allagash’s Curieux. Aged in Jim Beam Barrels, this beer is another high alcohol beer (this will be a trend on this blog..:-P). At 11% ABV, this packs a punch. But what a delicious punch it is. This beer is dry and oaky with a strong vanilla taste. There is a definite taste of Brettanomyces here which is a taste you’ll either love or hate. There is something that I really loved about barrel aged beers….they pick up so many different flavors, including a bit of the alcohol that was previously aged in it! If you’re a fan of belgians, give this one a try. It’s not very common to find so you may as well try it if it’s there!
