And, as promised,

a keg of 2008 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, which we cellared here for a year in order for it to gain even more complexity, is now on tap. The details:

Goose Island 2008 Bourbon County Stout (Chicago, IL; $9/8 oz). Goose Island has been releasing this highly anticipated beer once every year for the last sixteen years. The 2008 batch was aged for ten months in sixteen-year-old bourbon barrels. This adds intense charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and smoke flavors. We picked up an extra keg of this last year and aged it here for 13 months. 13.0% ABV.
