I have this one on tap right now:

US 2-Row Malt 13.00 lb 84.1 % 3.9 In Mash/Steeped
US Flaked Barley 0.70 lb 4.5 % 0.2 In Mash/Steeped
US Chocolate Malt 0.50 lb 3.2 % 29.2 In Mash/Steeped
US Caramel 40L Malt 0.50 lb 3.2 % 3.3 In Mash/Steeped
US Roasted Barley 0.25 lb 1.6 % 12.5 In Mash/Steeped
UK Black Malt 0.25 lb 1.6 % 22.5 In Mash/Steeped
UK Roasted Barley 0.25 lb 1.6 % 26.7 In Mash/Steeped

Hops
Variety Alpha Amount IBU Form When
Slovenian Super Styrian (Aurora) 7.0 % 1.00 oz 24.4 Loose Pellet Hops 60 Min From End
UK Golding 6.2 % 0.50 oz 10.8 Loose Pellet Hops 60 Min From End
UK Golding 6.2 % 0.50 oz 8.3 Loose Pellet Hops 30 Min From End
UK Golding 6.2 % 0.50 oz 2.2 Loose Pellet Hops 5 Min From End

Yeast
Wyeast 1026-British Cask Ale

It came out pretty good, the bourbon taste was a little too strong, next time I might not soak the cubes quite as long. You can make it an extract recipe by just using LME or DME and steeping the specialty grains, none of them need to be mashed.

Northernbrewer.com has a "Bourbon Barrel Porter" extract kit you can check out. I've brewed it and have it kegged - haven't tried it yet though

I usually use 3 oz. per 5 gallons. I soak them in bourbon once brew is in primary and keep adding bourbon to them. They will soak it up. Once I transfer to secondary I put them in. My last Bourbon Stout I let it soak for 1 month. I use meduim toast oak cubes. Next time I may go for 4 oz.

I'm drinking a 6 month old one of those as I type this. I can vouch for this recipe. Aged for 2 months in secondary and then I added 2 oz oak cubes for the last 8 days. At bottling I added 20 oz of Jack.
