Winding Down with Allagash

With its rich caramel flavor and subtle aromas of vanilla, bourbon and coffee, Allagash Barrel & Bean, a Belgian-style triple, is a beer best sipped with someone special.

Inspired by the fragrance of cold-pressed coffee sourced from Speckled Ax – a coffee roastery in his home town of Portland, Maine – Brewmaster Jason Perkins couldn’t help but notice how this local coffee’s aroma went with the scent of barrel-aged beer. So, Perkins and his team at Allagash aged their coffee-infused golden ale in bourbon barrels, where all the flavors marry, transforming the liquid into something much greater than the sum of its parts.
