The latest incarnation of Goose Island Brewing Company's delectable Bourbon County Brand Stout is now making it's way to distribution. According to the brewery this is just the first of two batches (source), though of course people will still go bonkers trying to lay their hands on some.

“A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer.”

Notably, this year's offering clocks in at 14.5% ABV, a slight uptick from the past few years, which may help justify the $6-$10 retail price tag people have reported for a single 12oz bottle.

Of course if you're willing to shell out the big bucks, one eBayer has a 4-pack listed right now... for a whopping $129.99 $99.99.

Update April 7, 2012: The 2nd batch of 2011 Bourbon County Stout will be draft only :(
