Thats ok, you'll appreciate it more when you do since you've had those cubes in the JB for so long!

OK, so just had a bit more tonight and its as close to the real thing as you'll get (except clearer) without paying close to $18 a bottle! This is AMAZING!!!!! It just gets better with age. I can REALLY taste the coconut complexities now. I'm almost at the point where I can't believe I made this beer!

I'm totally trying to make this last as long as possible! Almost a year and it just keeps getting better...

allagash curieux is a great beer, and this thread inspired me to learn about tripels and try to do my own

my recipe was pretty close to yours, and i've had 5gal sitting on 2oz med+ french oak soaked 30hrs in 6 oz eagle bourbon and the remaining gal on a proportional amount of med+ US oak/same bourbon. it's been in the closet for two months today and i'll probably bottle it this weekend. the oak is getting to be almost too strong, so i don't want to wreck it! i'll post results.

I don't think you soaked your oak long enough. That is going to be a lot of oak to age out. The month in JB was crucial, IMHO. I would get it off that oak ASAP. Best wishes but I worry about that oaking schedule. Medium + is a lot of toast man. I would try making another now letting the oak soak a month in the bourbon so that you can age them and see the two beers side by side and then you'll know which method produces the beer you like best.

This may be a dumb question. Did you use leaf hops or pellets or plugs?
