COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

To celebrate the most important election in the last century - sa appropiate, and thumps up for the idea. Poured in a tulip-glass. Dark brown almost black with a cffé Latte-look head. The nose is strongly dominated of rasted coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Some hops and burned malts and brown sugar and a little hint of smoke. (Cant help like feeling there is some aroma-notes of an old cheese of some kind...cant find the name...and for the record - i like cheese) The taste is bitter with notes of coffee and dark chocolate and malts. The body is creamy leaving a nce palate. The finish is long and bitter... I dont really feel that the taste backs the aroma all the way - but anyhow - its a good beer. VIVA OBAMA

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2009
Draught at KØ09. Cloudy black colour. Very small light brown head. Slightly rough bitterness. Faint hint of coffee. Too much malt bitterness for me.

Pour quite dark with a light brown head. A sweet smell of chocolate and licorice. A nice flavor of cocoa and it ends with a punch. Enjoyable.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2009
Thanks to Kris for the sweet in-person trade. Deep dark black beer with a thick beige head. Very sticky and chewy with a lovely nose. Lots of soft chewy cocoa with a bit of black licorice as well. Toasted chocolate and a bit of dry cocoa as well. At it warms the cocoa and chocolate really picks up. Lots of big herbal/earthy hoppy flavour. Long lingering bitterness. Really solid brew.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2009
Great look with fat light brown head. Aroma-flavor of flowerwood, coffeechocs, small hints of smoke, roasty bitterness, good carbonation and a longlasting brew ending up bitter for an hour.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 11, 2009
Botella, thanks Pinball. Pitch black colour with a steady nice light brown creamish head leaving a good lacing. Soke aroma with chocolate and roasty malt. Great mouthfeel. The flavour has lots of roasted malt with smoke, coffee, chocolate, a very pleasant bitterness and a long lasting roasty smokey dry finish. Yum!

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - MAY 7, 2009
Dark brown with a small light brown head. Mainly roasted malt aroma, mixed with some chocolate and citrus hops and wood. Bitter roasted and hoppy flavor with some sweet chocolate in there leading to a dry bitter roasted finish. Great brew!
