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.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 21st November 2009
Opaque black beer. Dry dry palate!! Rich malt, quite well toasted. Some bitter hops then comes through. Some creamy malt and a trace of dark fruits in the finish. The combination of over dryness, hard roasted malt and hops that impart nothing but bitterness are about as welcome as a kick in the goolies! 2.3.

CBC. Opaque black - brown beer. good tan head. Palate is soft and airy. Minerals. Creamy dark malt, a little roast. Light coffee. Light touch of smoke. Unsweet dark chocolate. Finishes with a little roast bitterness. Well joined up!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Black color; creamy beige head. Aroma of burnt coffee (do you know that coffee should be roasted, not burnt like Starbucks and the likes do???), and the dusty Danish yeast. Reasonable body strength, good dark chocolate flavor, roasted malt, limited but pleasant residual sweetness; bold bitterness. Solid and pleasant, without being impressive.
