I made up and brewed the following recipe thinking along the lines of a Sticke style (impy alt?) but I'm looking for advice on what BJCP category this may fall under. The beer is oh so very smooth and delicious. What would you call it?

11.25 gallon batch
18 lb pale 2-row
4.5 lb munich
1.0 lb wheat malt
1.0 lb carawheat
0.5 lb carafa II
0.5 lb aromatic
2 oz roast barley
Tettnanger and Mt. Hood hops
WY 1007 German Ale
SG 1.072
FG 1.014
17 SRM
51 IBU

A big beer with a malty profile and hints of plums/raisins. This is my first use of this yeast and I really like it. It's a true top cropper too.

Promash....could be more specific, but a really cool tool. Plug this in and see where it lands....I would, but too many presents to wrap.

Maybe an ALT (2)?

Q: What would you call it?

A: A beer!

You'll find the WY1007-German Ale yeast to be very versatile with a good brewhouse performence which is why many commercial breweries choose it for their "house" strain.
