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.

Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours black-brown with a fine, white foam head. Tangy dark malt nose. More tangy dark malts in the flavor, some dusty cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish, light roast, mild tang. Seems old, not in top condition. Would be kind of weak to bring an out-of-shape beer to the fest. But this beer was just OK.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Black color; creamy beige head. Aroma of burnt coffee (do you know that coffee should be roasted, not burnt like Starbucks and the likes do???), and the dusty Danish yeast. Reasonable body strength, good dark chocolate flavor, roasted malt, limited but pleasant residual sweetness; bold bitterness. Solid and pleasant, without being impressive.

Rasmus40 (20318) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2011
Black with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, coffee and peated smoke. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Dry and roasted rather bitter finish. 311209

chrisv10 (17312) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Very dark brown with medium tan head. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, liquorice, dry and bitter.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2009
Murky dark brown. Very coffeeish with hazelnut aromas, light vanilla and a hint of chocolate. Woody, thin character with a sweet, syrupy background. Toasty in the finish. This never really comes together after a promising aroma.
