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.

Barrel-Aged Beers

We think of barrels as more of an ingredient than a vessel. Using different barrels, you can add notes of spirits, oak, vanilla, toasted coconut, and more. They’re also used for aging our wild and sour beers. If you’d like to explore all of our currently available beers that spent time in barrels, click below!
