Amazing Beer: Goose Island Bourbon County Stout

Had an extraordinary beer the other night: Goose Island: Bourbon County Stout. Stunningly dark and thick, the chewy molasses makes you expect a flabby finish, but the 100 days of barrel aging give it a surprisingly light caramel/chocolate/coffee-flavored finish. The stand-out beer of the evening for me - their tagline is spot-on: "One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer". #22 on BeerAdvocate and #21 on RateBeer. HT to Perry for the lists. Too bad Bevmo discontinued it :-(
