NHC entry question
« on: January 26, 2013, 05:28:05 PM »
I brewed a Belgian imperial stout aged on oak and brett. What category would you enter this beer?

Thanks!

My mouth.  ;D

But in reality, I would do wood aged beers if you can taste the wood, specialty if it is subdued.

The oak is pretty mellow, it's Brett B that really jumps out.

Then Belgian specialty is your best bet.
