Imperial Stout 37/40
American Stout 39/39
Dunkelweizen 38/37
Coconut Stout 29/30
Smoked Blonde 36/29

As for the scoring, I'm not really surprised. The ones that scored low were past their prime, or in bottles that haven't fared well over the summer in the garage. That smoked beer was hit or miss. Every comp one judge would love it and one would say it's way too smokey. As it aged it got better, but now it's gone.

As a whole, these are the best scores I've ever got. The winning beers were in the high 30's and this was the first time I scored a 40.
Nice scores. I had 35/36 on my winning apa. weird, my ris scored low (30,35) since one of the judges (the 30) was in the group that gave it a best of event at our Oktoberfest. I had to re-bottle for the fair though. I got a second with a 31,34 for my rye apa. I've only had one beer in the forty's (40,42), and it only got second in a very competitive event.
