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.

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

A black beer with a medium and light brown head. The aroma is great, roastiness, chocolate, coffee, sweetness, some smoke and marzipan. Taste has coffee, salt liquirice, some smoke medium bitterness. Almost full bodied, not sticky, low carbonation. Balanced and very enjoyable beer with the great aroma.

HonusWagner (1607) - 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.

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!

A - Pours a dark brown-black with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted dark chocolate malts, dark fruits, smoke, vanilla, molasses, black licorice, and a hint of booze. T - Starts off with a mix of dark chocolate malts with some raisin and other dark fruits and some black licorice. Through the middle, some vanilla and smoke comes through with some molasses. The finish is a mix of dark chocolate, smoke, vanilla, dark fruits, molasses, and a touch of booze. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a touch creamy with a sweet and smokey finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice balanced smoked stout with a nice blend of smoke flavor and base stout.
