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.

Eructoblaster (4103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle - 500ml. Pours an opaque black body with an average beige foamy head. Wonderful, complex malty/hoppy aroma with roasty, chocolate, and some smoked ham/bacon hints. Its robust, well balanced taste carries licorice, roasted coffee, and smokey notes. Ends with a long, warming bitter/roasty finish. Very well done.

fluffy (2470) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2014
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

baraciisch (3120) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Rated as Mikkeller/Xbeeriment #44 smoked stout... Brown black in color... Light tan head... Aroma of roasted malts, oak, heavy peated malts... Flavor is fairly sweet roasted malts with smoke coming through late and especially on palate... Fairly enjoyable but smoke kind of overwhelms other nuances... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hansen (8545) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2014
Dark, almost black. Has a light brown head, lasting. Dark, roasted aroma with notes of port-wine, soft and still some faint coffee notes. Yeasty too. Flavor starts heavy sweet, more roasted, lightly burnt notes. Smoke? Perhaps. Moderate bitter finish. Soft texture.
