From notes at Old Chicago (2002): It pours a beautiful dark beer with red reflects. Decent beige head. The nose is of raisins, glue, cork and sour apples accompanied by grainy and sulphury components. The taste is rather sour. Nice lacework. Light bodied - thin and somehwat foamy. Watery, grainy and sweetish. Very low bitterness. Notes of celery sneaking in. Unpleasant slight dry finish with a hint of bitterness.

My dad got me hooked on Xingu. It's dark but has a less "aggressive" flavor than the stouts I personally prefer. Xingu is black as night with a mocha colored head that doesn't last very long. The taste and mouthfeel start with maltiness and end with just a zip of hoppiness. A very drinkable session beer; wish I could get it a little cheaper ;)

This beer pours a black body with a small white/tan head.

Clean dark malts with a slightly fruity overtone. Almost a banana type quality. Soft caramel, some toffee and coffee as well. All very small but really a classic dark lager smell.

Taste is light to medium bodied with a very intense carbonation. Really rides the border between macro lager and craft schwarzbier. Rough grain and even hints of sweet corn, but balanced against chocolate, some mild mild smoke, caramel, toffee and muted coffee. Natural root flavors, earth notes and a natural fruity taste. There's a numbing aspirin like quality that gives a lingering licorice or black molasses quality in the finish.

OVerall a decent schwarzbier. Classic flavors and rather drinkable. It's nice to know there are some good beers coming out of Brazil.
