Default Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout

Just got back from a trip to Chicago and was able to have a few bottles of the Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout. Now I see what all the rage about this beer is about. I've been searching for an all-grain clone, but no luck. Can anyone point to me a clone recipe for this amazing beer?

Really?? No help? I'm driving across Kansas back to NM and really need a recipe to work with before I get back.

The ingredients are on their website: http://www.gooseisland.com/pages/bourbon_county_stout/59.php

Should give you a good place to start. Then just add bourbon to taste and steep some espresso beans in it before bottling.

I didn't really get very many hints of coffee in this beer. I absolutely love this though.

I'm In the same boat and looking for a recipe. I will play around with some recipes and try to post something tonight for critique.

It must have changed, when I had a bottle when it first came out I couldn't taste much else besides the coffee. I thought it was too sweet and boozy as well.

I wish I could find this beer. I love the regular BCS!
Anyone have a bottle they want to trade for?

I have been able to make a decent approximation of the regular BCS with just the information from the web site and aging the beer on oak for about 3 weeks with some bourbon added to taste.

BCS changes from year to year as they change bourbon barrel sources from time to time, so it can be hard to dial things in exactly.
