Thanks a ton to cpinto6 for this beauty. Shared with many good friends.

Pours no head but it has thick black legs, almost pitch black color and an oily sleen, very dark head forms when I swirl.

Nose has big malt, some roast, coffee, a big raisin explosion, and even cinnamon, brandy, booze, syrupy fig, light caramel and molasses, cocoa, light vanilla, sweet rum, light spicy and tingly booze, nutty, very glog like, and a bit of chalky chocolate powder.

Taste has sweet malts, thin but rich, melted chocolate, chocolate water actually, some malt, caramel and nutty, vanilla, plenty of roast, light coffee, nice dark chocolate, bitter roast, then rum soaked raisins, fig, cinnamon again, rich and dark but tasty. Finish is semi sweet, rum and raisins, light bitter roast, chocolate, creamy, etc.

Mouth is med bodied, decent but lighter carb, bit of warming booze.

Overall pretty good but not as great as I expected, decent malts, nice fruits and booze flavors, tasty overall but not amazing.

750ml bottle poured into a wine glass. Huge thanks to Sam for hooking me up with this, been wanting to try this since trying Dirac over a year ago. Bottled in 2011, cellared for over 2 years.

A- Pours an opaque dark black, not much head formss, fairly still top, bit of mocha lacing is left along the sides.

S- Rum soaked raisins, figs, a pinch of cinnamon, hint of bakers chocolate and some light dark fruits. Average aroma strength, rum pretty light, almost no booze presence, nice complexity.

T- Dark fruits, figs, lightly rum soaked raisins, just a faint pinch of cinnamon on the finish, lightly bitter chocolate, some fudge. Nice complexity, nice balance without anything dominating too much. Not overly sweet, nice complexity, tasty although age may have lost a bit of flavor.

M- Super smooth, full bodied, silky, subtle carbonation perfect for the style.

O- This beer was released about 2.5 years ago, at this point it is still holding up fairly well. I never had it fresh but I imagine at this point it's lost a little bit of the raisin and cinnamon flavor but smoothed out nicely. The rum barrels only played a very subtle role in the beer and didn't come out too much just making a subtle rum soaked raisin presence. Comparing to having Dirac fairly fresh (never had Bohr), Nielsbohrium has less of a raisin or cinnamon presence but is noticeably smoother.

NYE bottle share a Proof. Poured a pitch black with zero head. No collar, and no lacing, but some decent legs from the thick body. Aroma is of very dark malt with a lot of coffee and a touch of spice (cinnamon, clove or nutmeg?). Taste has a lot of raisin up front, with the deep malt in the middle, a touch of booze (rum) throughout. Extremely low carbonation but that thick body lends to a good mouthfeel.
