COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Neils Bohr was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1885. His contributions to our understanding of the physical world have made him one of Denmark’s most famous citizens and one of the 20th century’s most influential scientists. In 1922, Bohr was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics “for his services in the investigation of the structure of atoms and of the radiation emanating from them.” A prolific scientific collaborator, Bohr mentored many of the great scientific minds of the 20th century.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Sampled thanks to Dak @ his Final Four Tasting. Ebony pour with a compressed brown sugar head that left spotty lacing. Aroma is assertive with notes of caramel, plum, dark chocolate, and ash. Flavor is also a bit on the aggressive side with Godiva and Hershey finding their way to the forefront. Tons of chocolate along with some toffee and spice. Chewy mouthfeel...much more so than Dirac. Yum.

Damico (2353) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Wow - pours dark chestnut brown with a small head. The aroma is awesome - big coffee and light chocolate notes with roastiness. The flavor is coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts with just a bit of soy that all blend together on a delicious, medium creamy body that goes down so smooth.

TheAlum (5205) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2011
750 ml from fishingnet. Thanks, Ben! Pours a pitchblack opaque pour with a moderate frothy dark brown head, laces well. Aromas are sweet: cocoa, toffee, caramel with some touches of vanilla, biscuits. Initial is thicker, a heavier bodied sweet pour with caramel, toffee, biscuits, cocoa. Moving into sweet toffee, some dark fruit, roasty coffee. Really nice, full and flavorful. Finish is roasty, heavier, with some toast, sweet caramel. Nice. Very similar to it’s brother, a bigger sweet stout that is solid, but doesn’t push any boundaries it seems. I liked it just a little more than Dirac if I needed to choose.
