Aventureux (meaning Adventurous in French) is our Belgian-style stout aged in whiskey barrels. This beer is brewed with our Allagash 2-row malted barley blend, chocolate malt, roasted barley, black malt, oats, and dark caramelized candi sugar, then aged for 6 months in rye whiskey barrels from our neighbors at New England Distilling. The toffee, chocolate and vanilla nose is followed by a smooth bitter chocolate aroma and flavors of whiskey and wood. The finish is dry, roasted and warming.
