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.

Wow. 750 from CCB. Pours the typical Wambles dark black with a small tan head. Nose is raisin, chocolate, port, booze, slight rum, and sweetened chocolate. Flavor is a bit fudgy with raisins within: raisin, rum, chocolate, slight dark fruit, and slight rum. Medium-bodied stout that gains more complexity the warmer it gets. Very enjoyable imperial sweet stout.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Bottled in 2011.

Appearance: Pours out a black body with a high, deep tan-hued head.

Smell: Fire-cured toasted breadcrusts and roasted grains with an edge of smokiness encapsulating notes of chocolate, raisin, and star anise.

Taste: Sweetish dark, roasty maltiness. Vanilla-flavored simple syrup over the toasted, predominately roasted malts trailing into plump raisins and a light dust of spices. The bitterness present seems more a product of the roasted malts. Warming alcohol throughout. A little Raisinette on the finish with some spice and peppery alcohol lingering into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light carbonation leading to a heavier, near-full mouthfeel.

Overall: You know, it’s a good, collaborative stout. Now then, pass the Hunahpu’s!

JohnnyJ (4084) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Bottle thanks to 50belair. Heavy dark brown/black pour, with a dense tan head. Chocolate, heavily roasted malts, burnt brown sugar, spice, dark fruit, molasses, and a touch of infected sourness. It was good except for the light unpleasant sour notes. Nice heavy, sugary dessert beer. Rating 2600.

Thick oily black color with a beige head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Full body. Pleasant sweetness. Balanced and tasty. Mild fruity, chocolate, coffee and some roasted malt. Yeah!

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle, thanks emacgee for sharing. Black with a small tan head, reddish brown rings of lace. Nose is robust and heavy--raisins, licorice, vanilla, cocoa, booze. Taste is more licorice, roast, booze, rasin, spice. Medium bodied, with a slick, slightly sticky texture, soft carbonation, and slightly bitter and ashy finish. Drink a little thin for the style which detracts from the overall mouthfeel. Solid, but not my type of a beer these days.
