Had this Side-by-side with the Nielsbohrium. We drank this guy first. Glad we didn't go the other direction. This beer is excellent, but not nearly as good as the Nielsbohrium.
This is a classic Imperial Stout. This would be a great measuring stick for the rest of the American double/IS.
I would love to have a fridge full of these guys.
If you see it, buy it.

Huge thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a deep black color with a tan head. Looks like a Cigar City stout should look.
The aroma is heavy on the chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Everything you want in a big, imperial stout is here.
The flavor is more of the same. I get an intense roasted malt character as well as a lot of chocolate and coffee. There is a little bit of raisin character and the alcohol is very well hidden. An excellent tasting and smelling imperial stout.
Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Acquired via trade
A thick, heavy, substantial body that's just about black as can be. The body of the beer appears somewhat oily and shiny, and doesn't leave much stick down the glass.
The aroma of this beer was it's best aspect. It was rich with bittersweet notes of chocolate, dark fruits, roast, and coffee. While all these aromas sound simply typical of the style, the chocolate aroma in particular was bold, authentic, and very expressive.
The flavor, while still certainly better than average, was disappointing after such an incredible aroma. The chocolate, roast, and dark fruit flavors were still there, but seemed just a touch muddled together.
Thick bodied with low carbonation. Very nice.
A fine imperial stout, but not one of Cigar City's finest.

Pours black with a half-finger brown head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing and heavy legs.
Smells of robust roasted malts with good amounts of semi-sweet chocolate. Also present are hints of molasses and lighter hints of char and tobacco.
Tastes more herbal than it smells. Solid roasted malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by moderate amounts of semi-sweet chocolate. Midway through the sip the flavor profile sweetens with the addition of dark molasses. Near the end of the sip floral and leafy herb flavors come into play, fading out into a mildly bitter ending.
Mouthfeel is very good. It’s got a smooth thickness with grainy carbonation.
Drinkability is also very good. I had no problems finishing my glass and could easily have a few more.
Overall this was an interesting beer. Tried side-by-side with the Dirac this beer smelled more robust and went down easier however the leafy herbal notes were heavier and detracted from the flavors a bit. Still, a solid beer that’s worth a shot.

Poured into a Corsendonk chalice - Brewed in 2011.
A - Pours a rich dark brown, opaque with no visible carbonation of lacing. Pours syrupy thick.
S - A potent scent of raisins, spices, and chocolate. Very much like Quaker raisin spice oatmeal. Incredible aroma that after settling gives off a coffee smell.
T - Up front blast of dried fruit and spice. Next it has a coffee bitterness, and ends with a boozy warming taste.
M - This is a pure sipper and feels heavy. While smooth, it coates the palate like cough syrup. Not a gentle stout.
O - Very impressed with this one. The raisin flavor and spicy notes make this a tasty big stout. Very thankful to a good friend who brought this back from the CCB shop. Another reason to love this brewery.

Received in recent trade. Got a bottle of Dirac last month, and thoroughly enjoyed it. (Also looking forward to trying the Niels bottle I got earlier this year.)
When I pried the cap off, I noticed some residue (possibly dried beer and rust) around the rim of the bottle. I also checked the bottlecap and noticed a bit of rust.
Poured from 750ml bottle into Bordeaux glass.
Aroma: A 1-2 punch of rich, chocolatey malt and a tart, almost metallic character. I also picked up some espresso beans and cocoa powder. The tartness kind of concerned me.
Appearance: Pitch black body, and one finger of dark tan foam, which falls slowly. Head leaves a nice layer of foam on inside of glass. Nothing wrong here.
Flavor: Similar to the aroma, unfortunately, but the tartness is a bit overwhelming. Upon checking other reviews for this one, I quickly confirm what I'd suspected. This brew was not meant to have a tart edge to it. It looks like an extremely unlucky time for me with one of my favorite breweries, CCB's, brews... Two infected bottles in the past week.
Mouthfeel: Body of the beer is full, and carbonation is medium-low. Infection results in tartness and astringency, which is not congruent with this style.
Overall: A big disappointment. Based on the other reviews for this beer, it looks like I just got unlucky this time. Really wish I could try a good bottle of Bohr, but I already burned through some considerable cellar capital to obtain this one. Will keep my fingers crossed that the bottle of Nielsbohrium I have lined-up for tonight is a good one.

750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.
Appearance - Viscous black body. No head while it pours, but a mocha head wells up at the end. Glass staining, like other CCB stouts.
Smell - Ouch, metallic and acidic. This smells way past its prime. Lots of dark fruits and raisins, but it's got a sharp acidic character. Dark chocolate and very dark roasted malts.
Taste - Equally harsh. Intense tang and metallic flavors. Raisins still strong. Dark chocolate, coffee, and very dark burnt malts. Acrid finish.
Mouthfeel - Thick. Sharp acidity. Medium low carbonation.
Overall - Wish I'd rated it long ago. But it serves to know that this is no longer any good.

(sampled at Dak's Final Four tasting). Pours dark brown with thin khaki head. Aroma of coffee, bacon and smoke. Taste is roasty with sweet malt backbone and dark some dark chocolate. Full bodied and slick texture. Really nice beer. Glad I got to try this one.

Another beer from Ibrew2or3... Dave is a cool cat.
This brew pretty much is identical to my regular Dirac review except without the fruity esters and with more hersheys syrup flavors and aromas..
I would lover to actually know what made them different.
Thanks again Dave... that was a historic tasting.

Rich dark black in color with a completely opaque and dark look to it. Rich tan colored head rose up to at least an inch and a half before settling down into a whispy cloud on top and tons of side glass lacing, perfect. The aroma was sublime, rich cocoa and coffee notes that swirled together effortlessly wth light hints of oak and rich sweet smells just swirling about it. As I took the first sip I nearly fell over. This is what I have been looking for in a big coffee stout. INSANE. Rich coffee flavors that were perfectly balanced against the rich oak and chocolate notes that I love in my oaked yeti. Smooth, seductive big bodied fel that made this a sublime sipper that offered no hint of the alcohol in it at all.
