look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Had this at Boizão in Tampa, but I see it at pretty much every beer store near me.
A- Pours a dark black/brown with ruby hues when held up to a light. About a .5 inch light tan head that retained fairly well. Decent lacing as the head dissipates and as you drink.
S- Sweet with the slightest hint of chocolate. Dark fruits and caramel is prevalent.
T- Definitely sweet. Strong notes of molasses and other dark fruits. I'm also tasting licorice and a hint of rum. Only a small amount of bitterness.
M- Light to medium bodied. I was expecting a fuller body. Very smooth.
D- I only had one of these, but I think it might have been difficult to drink any more of them simply due to the sweetness.
Not bad, but not great either. I probably wouldn't buy it again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on February 13, 2014.
The pour is a rich, deep brown color with a modest off-white head the becomes a ring. It looks like the style should look so that should be worth some higher points anyway.
How sweet it is!!! The aroma has a dark malts, molasses and maple syrup feel to it. Toast too.
The body is thin to medium.
The taste is also on the sweet side with the vaguest of bitterness sneaking up on the backside. But I will go away from this beer thinking "sweet" regardless of any other character I pick up.
This does not get high BA ratings but at the same time Xingu was one of those 'different' beers that taught me there was more to the world of beer than the American Pale Lagers I drank in 70's and 80's.
