I just found out that this beer placed third in the Smoke-Flavored/Wood-Aged category in the Kentucky State Fair homebrew competition. Needless to say I am pretty excited about this. As of now I have only seen the a list of who placed and do not have an actual score or feedback yet but I will be sure to post that as soon as I receive it.
Edit: I just picked up my score sheets and this beer scored a 37 overall.
If God wanted us to filter our beer, he wouldn't have given us livers
