Look at Avery brewing in Boulder's  Barrel Aged Series of beer.  They will not put out anything
but a winning combination.  And they put out a lot of good barrel aged special inaugural beers.

My personal opinion based on my experience is that Belgian beers are more suited to wine (or possibly Rum) bbls and compliment the nuances from the Belgian yeast better (though, to be sure, Rum bbl is only a hunch). For whiskey bbls styles such as Barley Wine, RIS, Old Ale, etc are better suited to handle the more aggressive flavors from a whiskey bbl.
I may actually be able to get a rum barrel from the same place as they make rum too.  I could then test your theory and report back

That would be cool! I am hoping to source some this summer.
