I brewed a RIS back in February that was aged in secondary with Oak cubes, vanilla beans and Maker's Mark Bourbon. I want to enter it in a homebrew competition next month. I was wondering if it would be more correct to enter it as a 13F (Russian Imperial Stout), or a 22C (Wood aged beer), or maybe even category 23 (specialty beer)?
I do not want to lose points based on entering the beer in the incorrect category. The base beer fits the RIS category pretty well, except the IBU's are just a little on the lower end of the scale. It is 9.5% ABV, black as midnight, and about 57 IBU. Any thoughts about where this beer would best fit are greatly appreciated.
