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.

Habanero (2662) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2012
Bottled. Pours opaque black with a medium sized tan head. Leaving a fair lacing on the glass. Nose of roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate, dark fruits and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, quite bitter and with alcohol notes. Excellent.★★★★

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2012
In short: A very rich and spicy black beer. Brutal but drinkable sugar bomb.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when approximately 1 year of age. Bottle sent to me by hopscotch, thanks a lot Eric
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan light-brown head
In long: Nose is very rich, raisins covered in caramel, black liquorice swimming in toffee, seasoned pastry, more… Taste is more chocolaty than expected, still lots of raisins, rich caramel, cinnamon bun, a piece of rich pastry, black liquorice spiral confectionery, plenty of anise. Bohr and Dirac + rum barrel aging created the atrocity that is Nielsbohrium. I could recognize certain aspects of Nielsbohrium in Bohr, however Bohr was not nearly as offensive as Nielsbohrium. Bohr is over-the-top, a brutal sweet assault on the palate, but it is not an unpleasant one. Named after Niels Henrik David Bohr, a brilliant Danish scientist in advanced physic from mid 1900s, so you see, the Danes have been obsessed with numbers for a very long time.

Pours a viscous, dark black color that’s completely opaque with a one finger dark mocha head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Looks incredible! Sweet, slightly spicy aroma with a balanced of roasted and sweet malt notes as well as some dark fruit and sweet booze. Subtle peppery zest followed by roasted dark malt, chocolate, coffee bean, toast and oatmeal. There’s also some lactic cream and lighter chocolate malt notes followed by vinous raisin, grape and fig. Medium bodied with a prominent peppery spice presence up front that’s countered by a complex malt bill, vinous fruit and boozy sweetness. Slightly viscous with pepper, ginger and and clove followed by roasted chocolate malt, tobacco, toffee and robust coffee bean. The roasted character is countered by sweeter malt notes, lactic cream and dark fruit notes. Hints of raisin, plum and fig give some needed sweetness toward the end of the palate which is followed by subtle boozy heat. Still, the high ABV is relatively well maxed, making this complex sipper easier to drink than expected.

Huhzubendah (2615) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! Served side by side with Dirac. The beer is on the edge of blackness, with a beige cap that leaves a healthy trail of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings roasted malt, dark fruits, spice, and some booze. The flavor is nice, with everything well balanced and integrated. The beer is full bodied, thick, and viscous, with fairly low carbonation. I preferred Dirac over Bohr, but only slightly. I think they are both great beers. This collaboration was definitely a success.

peteinSD (1377) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle from Scott - thanks! Black pour with a very dark brown/tan head that hangs in there for a while. Aroma is very dry roast with chocolate, bitter coffee, and noticeable raisin/date with a touch of alcohol sweetness into the finish. Taste is dry roasted malt with chocolate, bitterness, char, alcohol bite, and a sweet melange of malt and raisin. Feel light and creamy. Nice combination of the dry, roasted imperial with the sweet raisins. Good beer that may have peaked some time ago.

sthlm (1231) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2012
[Bottle, thanks!] Old rating. Pours dark brown with a nice head. Aroma is coffee, raisin, light spice--allspice? Vague sweetness. Taste is barbeque sauce, deeply roasted malt, smoke, and dark chocolate undertones. Thick mouthfeel, smoth. A decent beer, but didn’t amaze like some other CCB beers have. Thanks again for the opportunity to try this!

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle shared at drowland’s going away tasting, thanks to stevencon. Poured a dark brownish black with a thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and slight fig-like sweetness. Taste is more towards bittersweet chocolate and coffee, with a slight alcohol burn. Nice, but not the best imperial stout.

Tallahassee, Fl - at drowland’s 7/7/12 going away tasting party - thanks to stevencon. Dark brown pour, khaki colored head. Aroma is peppery and sharp. Flavor of raisins and brown sugar, some chocolate, brown sugar and pepper in the finish. Thickish mouthfeel.
