Ya the high gravity competition was a lot less formal than the others. The big thing, was does it have lots of alcohol and is it extremely drinkable. (can I sit down and drink this all night aside from being absolutely smashed?)
It was me and 3 other judges that did that while the judges that had categories with 20 entries battled through their flights.
The mead was a really close second to the IIPA and was really good, but yours beat it because the mead had so much residual sugar(a plus for mead imo) we didn't think it was quite as drinkable.
edit: Ah ****, I though I was talking to the other guy on here that won.
Ya after the BOS round was over, a few of us hovering around took what was left of the winning bottles and sampled.
