Going to enter my double milk stout in a bjcp comp. Question is what category does it fall under?

If it doesn't fit in 13b, it's 23A

Need a little more info. "Double" - does it refer just to gravity or did you double the lactose or something?
Check out 13D of the tropical variety and see if it fits. Depends on hops too, and if alcohol is not obtrusive 13B could be best bet.

OG was 1.095 and it came in at 10.5%. Up front it's similar to breakfast stout by founders but finishes sweet and creamy.

Seems like it could just go under Imperial Stout. If you handed it a craft beer drinker and told them it was a RIS, would they agree?

Also, KBS has added coffee and chocolate. Did you add any special ingredients like that? That would also impact what category you enter in.
