Thinking of entering this.

Thinking of entering this. What category would I enter a BA stout?

Steve, if its wood aged

Steve, if its wood aged without any added alcohol character from previous uses of the barrel, then it would be 33a Wood-Aged Beer.  Bourbon barrel aged beers or similar should be entered in 33b Specialty Wood-Aged Beer.  You can read the specifics in the style guidelines here

CHAOSites who have entered

CHAOSites who have entered beers, make sure you indicate that you are a member of CHAOS on your registration.  The Charley Orr Memorial Chicago Cup Challenge is a club-based competition - the club with the most points wins that year's Chicago Cup (which is a mythical, non-corporeal cup, but you get the idea).   Glory!
