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). abemorsten (3615) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Sampled at the RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. Black body with a light brown rim. Raisin, booze and wood on the nose. Sour, salty, fruity flavors with concentrated espresso roasted coffee that lasts. Full bodied. yngwie (17053) - 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 tfredvik (1948) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
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.

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. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle @ Bruce’s. The pour’s thick, sludgy dark brown with a small head. Intimidating pour. The nose is grape, caramelized cherry. Brownie mix, cocoa. The taste is earthy, sweet. Cinnamon spiced chocolate cake. Some lactose. Vietnamese coffee. Full body, soft carbonation. Great stuff. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
