Default BJCP Category for a whiskey barrel aged Arrogant Bastard Clone?

Curious how this would best be categorized? I'm thinking definitely 23C but unsure of the type as you need to specify the type right?

Ok perhaps a different question. Those with whiskey barrel experience, does conditioning in these barrels lead to poor head retention?

I think you may have a typo there; you meant 22C right?

22C. You do not have to specify a base classic style as there is no base classic style. You can provide some information if you want, and I would. In this case it is probably simple and effective to just call it an Arrogant Bastard Clone. If you live in an area where Stone does not distribute and think judges are not familiar with AB you can try "IPA strength dark strong ale" or something but I think most BJCP judges are familiar with AB.

Nice catch, yeah 22C was the intended class.
