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.

thewolf (11589) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 6, 2009
Bottle @ Ølbutikken, Cph (release).
Pours redish black with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has nice, dark chocolate, soft smoke and lightly roasted. Some hops peep through. Low carbonation with a slightly thin and watery feel. Flavour is very nice, though it is very dry. Lots of ashes, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Some sugary sweetness that tries to balance the ashy dryness, but never really succeeds. Good, but a tad unbalanced.

500ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - shared by Mirjukka - thanks!
Black, tan head. Stodgy porridgy aroma, and loads of elastoplast. Massively dry and ashy palate. However, it’s quite tasty, plenty of fruity and citrussy hops.
