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.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 50cl bottle with the most nondescript label probably ever. Dumb tribute though. It pours a dark brownish black with a foamy tan head. The head is rocky and sticks for a nice while before receding to some nice lacing. The smell immediately stands out as it is one of the most fragrant stouts I have smelled. It is unique as well. It has an almost fruity tang to it with a ton of smokiness in various forms, mostly smoked peat and roasted malts but there is also a hint of campfire. The flavor is big and bold. It isn’t super smoky, but super, super roasty. There are notes of coffee, campfire wood, a nice smoky bitterness, smoked peat, and some dark chocolate. Some citrusy hops start to come in after a few drinks, adding to the bitterness. It is surprisingly light bodied, but it isn’t light or water, just smooth and drinkable. A fine brew.

Christian (13823) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 4, 2009
Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma has chocolate, coffee, a hint of peat smoke and some citrus hop. Dry and roasted, licorice dominated, flavour with C-hop bitterness and a slight hint of peat adding complexity. I didn’t know Barack was this bitter, but I’ll take Xbeeriment’s word for it.

BeerandBlues2 (13816) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Tap at Max’s. Pours clear black with a small, fizzy tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt with prunes and figs, dates and earthy hops. Flavor is dark malt dominant with light hops and medium bitterness, dark fruits and a dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

bierkoning (13689) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2009
Bottled. Black and opague. Coffee, malt and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweetish, salty flavor with coffee, roast, just a hint of cream and ash. Roastbitter, creamy aftertaste. Velvety mouthfeel. Well balanced stout.

Rune (13507) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2011
500ml bottle brought back home from Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Opaque back body under a fading, tan-coloured head. Smell of dark fruits, dusty hops and some notes of pine. Dark bitter fruits in flavour along with leafy hops supported by a spicy touch, quite peaty, in fact. Hop bitter endnotes. Different and flavoursome stout (shared with Finn and MrSoul, Tromsø 22.09.2011).
