Time to get your Dark Beers sorted for the June competition

Judging will hopefully take place around 7th July but may be over a few days if there are a lot of entries.

PM (start conversation) me for address and try to get the entries to me by the end of the month as this will allow time for them to settle before judging.

Any style of dark beer welcome. Please ensure bottle is marked with the style, ABV and your forum name.

Anyone not sure the rules see the "new competition rules" thread.

Ill update here as bottles arrive.

Apologies for a very newbie question, but I'm not sure what counts as a 'dark' beer...
would a Ruby Mild be 'dark' enough? How about a Dunkelweizen?

Morning
I couldn't find a definitive definition of 'dark' in the rules so guess it is more down to peoples perception as to whether it looks dark or not.
I did check the BJCP criteria for a Dark Mild which is 23.6 to 49.3 EBC, so I would say anything over 24 EBC could be classed as 'dark'

Still plenty of time to get your dark beers entered into the June competition :beer1:

Any style, it just has to look dark 🙂

I think I’ve got a stout somewhere in the garage, I’ll enter that if you could send me your address?

Last night I had a sneaky sample of my Old Ale which is now 2 months conditioned and was pretty pleased with it so if you PM me your address I’ll get a bottle of that off 🍻

I've a KBS clone kegged. Supposed to be ready in August but I'm itching to have a taste. If it's up to scratch, I'll send in a bottle.

I've got some stout than I can send a bottle of. I don't think it's great but it will be good to get another opinion.
