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.

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.

Bottle as Xbeeriment #44. Black color with a thick foamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, wood, nuts and notes of lemon. Medium bitter taste with some sweetness. Medium bitter finish. Oily feel.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours dark chocolate brown, almost black, with a one inch off-white head that recedes to a decent collar and leaves very little lacing. The aroma is very peaty and smoky, like Scotch, but not nearly as overpowering as some of the Scotch-aged beers I’ve had. There are plenty of roasted malts and a fair amount of citrus hops. The taste has an initial sweetness from the malts mixed with the peat notes. There is some cocoa powder and black malts in the background though the finish is a duel between the oranges of the hops and the smoke from the malts. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation - dry and smoky in the finish. This is an excellent stout with the peated malts really adding some complexity. I’ve normally been very disappointed with "Scotch-tasting" stouts but it’s pretty subtle here. Highly recommended.

Foffern (1642) - 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.
