So, yeah, I didn’t win…but that’s not really the point. The point is to gain experience and to get BJCP judges to give me feedback on my beer. Here are some pics of the letter and scoresheet(s) I got.
So basically, I didn’t make it dark malty enough. I was trying to go on the light side, but I went too light. Now I know to throw in even more chocolate malt. Maybe even some brown malt next time.
