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.

Ok, that does it. Itís time to call it a day. No more ratings for me this night, my palate is completely and utterly exhausted: I canít 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, itís dark roasted, and I get chocolate and coffee.

Bottle picked up at Hunahpu Day 2011. Viscous black pour with light brown head. Aromas of roasted malts and dark fruits. Roasted malt, raisin and molasses flavors with some licorice. Full body with syrupy mouthfeel. This beer has come together nicely with a few years on it. Had side by side with Bohr. Very similar beers, but I like the Bohr a bit more.

Scopey (7201) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Rating#3800. Bottle thanks to Kenny at Jackís farewell tasting. It pours jet black with a small tan head. The nose is big, rich-roasted malt, coffee, chocolate gateaux, mild acidity, dried fruit, spice and light sesame. The taste is rich-roasted coffee, oily, chocolate cake, toffee, burnt notes, dried fruit, tablet, spice and a touch of bitterness. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Big, bold and fairly sweet, yet somehow remains rather drinkable. Nice.

From big bottle into Corsendonk chalice. Pours black with brown head...some lace. Aroma of sweet chocolate, dark chocolate, rich roasted malts, espresso, chili, roasted hazelnuts. Modest carbonation and pungent mouthfeel. Flavors of sour malts, bitter chocolate, milk chocolate, Mexican chocolate, burnt malts. Overall very bold and flavorful with some unique bitterness and sour notes atop lots of chocolate, spices, and raisins.

Sample from a bottle at DLD í11. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small beige head. The aroma has roasted malt, dark chocolate, raisins, a hint of alcohol and some peppery spice. Perhaps a touch oxidized. The flavor has roasted malt, dark chocolate, raisins, some peppery spice, some booze with a mild bitterness to the finish.
