Appearance: Dark, Black- Hence the name black beer. Very little head.
Smell: sweet, I'm not really sure how to describe it.
Taste: Wonderful! It does not taste how you think based on color. It is sweet and flavorful but light.
Mouthfeel: Light and smooth, there is little carbonation so it feels watery smooth in your mouth.
Drinkability: You can sit down and drink the whole 6 pack no problem. This would be a great beer for anytime if you can find it or afford it.
Serving type: bottle then poured into a Guinness style glass.

I work in a liquor store that has wine & spirits, but we don't even have this beer in stock. A gentleman actually special ordered this brew and never purchased, his loss was my gain. A: Very nice dark color almost looks like a porter or bock, very nice head with little lacing. S: Kinda has a rich pine smell but not overwhelming T: Very excellent taste was very nervous to spend $9.99 on a six pack that no one i knew had tried yet, but very nice peach or grape flavor makes you want to pop open two at a time M: Subtle,the flavors make you want not to swallow D: Do not pass this beer up if you can get your hands on it please do so,its in my top 5 beers of 2010 so far.

I first had this beer when I was living in Michigan, and again in Arizona. It seems to be at least partially based on the Bock style. Though few liquor stores in the United States seem to carry Xingu, it is nonetheless a worthy find, and definitely a beer that I would buy again!

This was my first first experience with a black lager, boy was it good. I was instantly hooked on this beer for its subtle flavors, yet stays true to the lager feel.
I would say that I would prefer it on tap, though I doubt that is available near me.
The beer complements a Peruvian style dinner quite nicely. I would recommend this beer if you wish to drink a beer that does not detract your meal, but rather acts as a sorbet.
I am committed to this beer, and have locally found a distributor in my new current city.

Brewed in Brazil, this is a very interesting beer. A black beer, the body was intentionally light but still had a lot of roasted caramel/molasses flavor, and yet was not too sweet. Sort of a "lite stout." Worth a try for both porter and stout fans.
