COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Born: 8-8-1902 Bristol, England. Died: 20-10-1984 Tallahassee, Florida. Paul Dirac was one of the founders of what became modern Quantum Mechanics and along with Erwin Schrodinger won the Nobel Prize in 1933. The recipe for this stout (10% ABV, brewed with raisins and spice) was conceived by Wayne Wambles, Head Brewer at Cigar City Brewing and brewed in collaboration with Mikkeller.

visionthing (2575) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark malts, dark fruits berries and lots of chocolate. Quite sweet but still balanced. Not as good as Bohr, but certainly a pleasant one! (2014-02-15 - Grand Tasting, Fredriksten festning, Halden)

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Taster from a bottle at the Grand Tasting at the RBNG-event at Fredrik 3.’s Hall. Dark brown coloured body. Lasting small tan-coloured head. Black coffee on the nose. Coffee and confectionery chocolate flavours offset by bitter liquorice added by a spicy touch. Full bodied and very smooth in the mouth. Lovely late drinking (Halden 15.02.2014).

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. A dark brown to black beer with a minimal sized dark beige head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, dark dried fruits and some molasses. Alcohol notes. It’s full-bodied and warming, with a soft carbonation level. Caramel, dark chocolate, molasses and a pleasant bitterness. Roasted malts and coffee in the end. Overall, sure nice, although a tad sweet. 140215

Ok, that does it. It’s time to call it a day. No more ratings for me this night, my palate is completely and utterly exhausted: I can’t really find any clear differences between Dirac and Bohr, other than a much lighter sourness in the Dirac. Apart from that Dirac has a black body, quickly disappearing brown head, very strong aroma and flavours, it’s dark roasted, and I get chocolate and coffee.
