I came in second place in the Dark Lager category

Well, you beat me out. I had a Schwarz in there that didn't place. I think it might have been a little past its prime. The hop flavor had pretty much fallen off. Got dinged for that at the last comp a few weeks ago and expecting a similar score sheet here. Scored 37.5 last last time with it. It will be interesting to see where the judges from the brew-off put it.

Darn, 4 enteries and nothing. I was sure my Bock and my Dunkel were good. I won APA last year. I know my wit was too phenolic and really too young. The IPA was dark, rich and malty but used american hops, great brew but a bit odd style-wise, especially with the popularity of pale IPAs.

Darn, going to go have a dunkel now... mmm.

I had a pretty good year last year, probably about a 40% win rate and entered almost everything because I wanted the feedback (not just the stuff I knew was very good). Then last comp of the year I went 0/4. There is a lot of variability in judging so that sort of thing will happen from time to time, don't take it personally.

Winner winner chicken dinner. Disappointed to see that a couple of my brews did not place, but the Robust Porter that was a totally self-fabricated recipe came in first.

Eager to see all of the sheets regardless. I didn't detect off flavors in any of them and want to verify this is the same with the judges and to see where my interpretation of the style may have fallen short of expectations.

how long does it take to get your score sheets back usually?

Nothing for me either and I'm pretty close to the area.

Nothing here as of Saturday.

I was looking at the results and noticed that, contrary to what was posted, there was no separate BOS for meads and ciders.

There was a separate group that appeared to be judging ciders for BOS. Maybe they just forgot to post it?

I emailed and asked about the score sheets yesterday and he said "I have most of them ready to go - should go tomorrow or the next."
