Sounds delicious man, I actually LOVE beers that are heavy on the bourbon so I think I would be a big fan of your beer.
I'm gonna get a stout going soon as my 3rd brew...I don't want to screw it up since i'm such a noob, but i'm very tempted to oak it, bourbon it, add some other not yet decided stuff to secondary...we'll see
