Mkay. I can get it for $20 here. I was just wondering if it was a good price. That being said, I can trade some of this for anything unique and worthwhile that I am ignorant of here in the Midwest

I actually bit at $20 for the bottle. Oh dear gosh it was phenomenal. Enough to convince me to save up for a bourbon barrel? Of course.

This may be a silly question...but would a nice long secondary with a sizable amount of bourbon soaked oak chips even come close to replication this kind of effect?

I've done several standard stouts and added beam aged oak chips to the keg. Best result were lightly toasted chips, soaked in beam for six months or longer. Added about 1/3 cup to the keg in a hop bag. Taste was best between 3-6 months. Longer and it seemed to get bitter. Same with adding the liquor.

I'm going to go look for that beer. I'd pay 20 to try it.

I'm drinking a local brewpubs 2008 imperial stout aged in beam barrels for 3 1/2 years right now.

$23 is what I forked over.
