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.

fiulijn (18725) - 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.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours black-brown with a fine, white foam head. Tangy dark malt nose. More tangy dark malts in the flavor, some dusty cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish, light roast, mild tang. Seems old, not in top condition. Would be kind of weak to bring an out-of-shape beer to the fest. But this beer was just OK.

yngwie (16481) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2009
On tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival. It pours a next to black body under a tan head of medium size. Slgihtly oaked (peat?) nose with roasted malts, some burnt notes, coffee and alcohol. Charcoal, coffee, sweetness and some warmth in the mouth, rather dry, even though there’s some sweetness present. Roasted finish. A nice beer that I would like to have more of. (090516)

brokensail (15728) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 2, 2011
A: The beer pours a very dark brown, pretty much black, color with a thin layer of tan head. S: Can you say nail polish remover? I thought I was having a Drake’s barrel aged beer for a moment. Huge nail polish remover, acetone, and ash with a very, very harsh acidity to it. T: Just a horrible flavor as well. Ashy and chalky with sharp acidic notes. The nail polish remover and acetone notes are in full force on the flavor as well. M: Medium in body with a low to medium carbonation and a lingering burning sensation. O: Truly awful stuff.
