I’ve seen this beer go for upwards of $11 beans at high end restaurants, I am glad to have found it for $1.69, a good deal considering it’s from Brazil. Poured into a pint glass. I had a great review written up for this but I keep getting knocked off the site when trying to upload reviews, so here is a shorter version.

Xingu Black Beer is black, it’s a very black color even up to light, with some faint reds bursting at the sides. Some nice dark tan foam that forms a cap with retention and spray paint lace on the way down. A good looker if I’ve seen one. Scents include chocolate, cocco, grain, faint hop aroma, think earthy, licorice and faint dark fruit.

The dark fruit that I get was present in Dragon Stout from Jamaica, although that beer was god awful. Im guessing this flavor will deteriorate over time causing a sour/putrid taste in Xingu which seems to have better legs. It’s a rotted fruit flavor that I pick up in dark beers from the South America area. Other flavors include chocolate, cocco, licorice, roast, faint coffee and earthy hop taste. Pretty well rounded at this point

Feel is approaching medium but not quite there yet. The carbonation is low making for an easier ride down. This kinda coats the mouth real quick and leaves even quicker. I drank my bottle over a long period of time, I was just not that interested in it. It’s OK beer, but that South American taste is there and, well, it’s just there. One and done.
