    The JR is my fave
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Re: Bourbon ale/beer recommendations?

    I will be creating a "bourbon barrel" Extra Stout and Kentucky Common once I perfect the recipes. My Extra Stout is awesome, trying to fine tune it. I will be soaking oak chips in bourbon and putting them in the beer for a couple weeks, then kegging or bottling. Eventually I want to do it with a real bourbon barrel. They run like $75-85 though.

    When they're ready I'll trade some bottles for something if anyone is interested.

    But....the Allagash Curieux is mind blowing, if not cheap. I highly recommend it.

    Isn't the Jefferson's Reserve the BBC product? They supposedly use Jefferson's Reserve barrels, which is funny for obvious reasons. But, yes, it's a very good product, although I have trouble rationalizing the price.

    Another vote for Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - I've got some 2008 in the fridge still. Excellent stuff.

    If you like the Allagash, but want more flavor intensity for a special occasion, check out Cuvee de Tomme from Lost Abbey or Bourbon Barrel-aged Quad (BBQ) from Boulevard.
