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.

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.

Erasmus_ro (1399) - Alabama, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle, 14/06/14. Pours a dark brown, black with a good-sized, dark latte-colored head. Aroma is a lot of roast, coffee, some rye and chocolate, light smoked meat. Taste is semi-sweet, light sour. A lot of roast, some coffee. Light salty liquorice. Quite a bit of smoke. Surprisingly light with decent carbonation. Pretty nice sipper.

mathieuc (1391) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Pours a really really dark brown and is topped by a thin beige head that receeds into a ring that leaves OK lacing. Aroma is indeed smoky, but also woody and a little vegetal (someone said green coffee beans, I concur). Taste is highly roasted and no real sweetness is perceived. Flavors of hickory, coffee, slight green peppers. None of the ashy character I despise in some stouts. Body is full, carbonation moderate. The smoke gets a bit tiresome as you reach the middle of the bottle but that might be just me. Nice one!

GothGargoyle (1302) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2012
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.

henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle - Deep black body with a dark brown edge, very creamy lasting mocca head; Excellent very well put together aroma, the more you put it to your nose the more refined and deeper it gets, it has everything: the creamy soft chocolate without being the least vulgar, the roasted malty fruitiness without being neither dry or floral, the piney resin without being to sharp, extremely nice; The body is very interesting but no at the same level as the nose and maybe a little more interesting then really good, there is some thing invisible about it either it is the texture being extremely soft at the same time as being a little watery, maybe it is the fine combination of balanced sweetness and dry roastedness; It finishes very long and grows in bitterness to something that last very and quite dry, at another level you have a cream like soft sweetness almost like condensed milk, it makes again a very interesting combination, this with a very light roasted bitterness makes again a very very interesting combination. Very very interesting and very good beer!

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2011
Aroma: dark chocolate, roasty coffee, hint of smoke Appearance: Dark brown to black, hazy. Small beige head, disapears fast. Taste: More of the roasty malt with a coffe touch. Dark chocolate. Palate: Heavy body, feels very thick and creamy (In the beginning I felt I could drink this with a spoon), low carbo. Long medium-heavy bitter in the end. Overall: A very tasteful and heavy stout. On the edge of becomming too bitter in the end, could be just little bit more balanced, but overall a beer that tastes as good as when you open the bottle as after an hour in the glass.
