NOTE! In the US this beer is marketed as Xbeeriment #44. The reason for this is that any references to President Obama would only be permitted by US authorities if we had a written permission from the White House. So the dressing’s changed, but the beer stays the same!

Also please NOTE that the first US edition of "Xbeeriment #44" is erroneously labelled 10.4% ABV.

English: Brewed to celebrate Barack Obama’s inaugural as the 44th President of the United States, and the first black person to hold the office. A potent stout with a fair amount of peated malt in the grain bill. This adds a smoky character to the beer which obviously also has roasted aromas from the dark malts and roasted barley as well as loads of citrusy hop notes from the US hop varieties. NOTE: From 2009 - 2012 this beer was brewed at Amager Bryghus. From the summer of 2012 it will be brewed at Herslev Bryghus.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2009
From draught at The Bishops Arms, Järntorget. Black in colour, pale brown head. Malty, butterscotchy aroma with frozen strawberries and cooked corn. Butterscotchy, fruity, malty flavour, slight toasty and peppery with bitter finish. The finish is bitter, earthy hops. Kind of green to the character, due to the hops I presume.

NoiZe (2323) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2009
Black coloured brew. Hoppy, fruity aroma. The flavor is very hopped, some coffee, smoke and pleasant roasted maltiness. Balanced stout with a lot of hops. A bit a combination of an IPA and a smoky stout. Very nice.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2009
A very dark brown beer with a small off-white head that actually leaves some lacings. The smell is fairly mild with aromas of smoked and roasted malts, burnt wood, chocolate and hints of fruits. The taste is quite sweet and balanced with flavors of mild peaty smoke, roasted malts, coffee and dark fruits. The finish is mildly bitter, dry and a short with hints of hops. It’s quite soft on the palate with a rather full body and very mild carbonation. Goes down really easy. All in all, a decent beer, very easy to drink. Cask.
