Hi all,

My friend and I recently brewed an imperial stout (came in at 8.1% ABV) which we added lactose to toward the end of the boil, and then we also added cocoa nibs in secondary. Which BJCP category would this likely fit into? Sweet Stout (16A) caps at 6% ABV, so that doesn't seem right despite the lactose. Could we just put it in Imperial Stout (20C)? Or does it perhaps fit in the Spice, Herb, Vegetable category (30A)? Thanks for any input!

30A lists examples like Bells Java Stout and Founder's Breakfast Stout, so I guess there, though that doesn't really make sense to me. Should we assume you're bringing it to a comp?

Yep, that is the plan!
