Default Barrel-aged beer

I'm working on sourcing some barrel-aged beer for a future episode of my podcast and thought the Asylum would be the perfect community to poll. I'm looking for some really good barrel-aged beers that can be found in bottles. We do the show at home, so tap beer isn't going to work for us.

I already have a friend sending me some Innis & Gunn from Canada since it doesn't seem to be available in LA. What else should we try?

The best is Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. It says right on the bottle "a great cigar beer". It runs about $18 a 4pk!

I do like the Goose Island, but I found Founder's Backwoods Bastard Stout a little tastier.

Old Dominion makes an oak barrel stout, but I think the version in the bottle is different then what is on tap.

I like Old Dominion's Oak Barrel Stout, never had it on tap though.

Been meaning to try Allegash, local beer store seems to have most of 'em on the shelf.

And Dogfish Head has one that's... unique

It out of season, but Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout is very tasty. Another option would be Stone's Oak Aged Bastard.

Not sure how easy it would be to find out there or out of season, but Rahr's Bourbon Barrel Aged Winter Warmer is awfully tasty.
