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.

Tap. Black with a smaller tan head. Roasty aromas with some peat, salt, and minerals in the aroma. More chocolate shows up in the flavor, but moves on to a lighter peat, salty, and savory flavor. Thinner body actually, with very bubbly carbonation.

As smoked stouts go, this one is pretty lame and tepid. Definitely not worth the price for this one. Needs more smoke definitely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid black with a decent beige head that leaves behind some good lacing. Aroma is olives, spice, smoke. Taste is olives, vinegar. Slightly sour on the palate. Not great.

Tap @ Blue Monk. Black with a nice tan head. Nose is kinda plasticy peat with iodine, caramel, pine. Quite restrained. Flavor is piney hop, iodine, roast, smoke, plastic. Piney, solidly bitter finish with nice smoke coming out & lingering.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, 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.

RBSG09 bottle at the grand tasting. Darkest brownish-amber color with a tan head. Aroma is big on roasted malt and coffee with a whisper of smokiness. Flavors of cocoa powder, burnt coffee, oak, smoke, and alcohol. Dry finish with moderate bitterness.

Fred82 (2139) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
500ml bottle from IPB. Labeled Smoked Stout
Appearance : Black with medium foamy brown head.
Aroma : Acidic cold coffee with roasted malts. Light smoke with light piny hops.
Taste : Acidic coffee with roasted malts. Piny hops. Fairly astringent. Finish is acidic with piny hops. More astringency.
Overall : Nice roasted malt, nice smoke with too acidic. Maybe a bit too much coffee also. Feels a bit too much like a cold coffee. Fairly warm also. A bit hard to drink. Not really my thing.

HonusWagner (2093) - Florida, USA - APR 25, 2012
Something’s a little weird about this one, kinda cigarette ashy and not nearly as "smoked malt" as I’d like. Also, not very much of a stout, kinda sour and not rich or remotely sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2012 Bottle.... It pours pitch black with a small creamy tan head.... The aroma is wood, roasted malts and some smoke....... The flavor is very roasted, smoke and chocolate..... long roasted flavor finish.....

RBSG09. This was kind of an odd one. It had a relatively mild, dry flavor for a stout (ok, for an impy stout, which it was not as I now see). There was almost an off cardboard note to it, although I assume it wasn’t aged. Perhaps, it was just something funny about the roasted barley. At any rate, there’s a very good roasted chocolate flavor in there with some good dry complexity. It just might have been too dry for the size of the stout and the strongly roasted barley flavor.
