Surprising. Hops and spices hit you different than the aromas tell you. Hit of spices that linger a bit but fade to a light sweet aftertaste. Can really taste the ingredients when the burn goes. Can taste the abv a bit more then other trippels

Strong beer can be difficult to make palatable. They did it here with the oak whiskey barrel fermentation. Awesome paring of flavors. Don't drink to many!

Could not taste the oak aged bourbon. Was like a normal triple Belgian.

Great and full bodied. The bourbon is not overpowering so it's easy to have more than 1 profile - June 29, 2012
Amazing, oak-y, smooooth.

A well balanced Belgian style ale with a smooth almost sweet bourbon finish. Excellent for sipping on a cold night by the fire! Only downside is that it is expensive at $15/ bottle.

offers a variant on this highly respected beer style insofar as it is aged in Jim Beam Bourbon barrels. Aromas of sweet apples, bread, and rind meet the nose alongside an appearance that offers golden, lightly cloudy beer though with only a faint head (with a bit of spottyness on the surface) though the head may have been absent due to a bad pour. Curieux is delicious: a sort of sweet and simultaneously sour apple is predominant alongside vanilla hints from the Bourbon barrels that are clearly present and enticing, yet not overwhelming. Somehow, the two flavours balance perfectly with a sufficiently drying finish presented by a medium body with a tingly-crisp feel of fair carbonation. Simply blissful! Grade: A+
