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.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a 1/2 inch khaki head that fades to an oily film. Random splotches and streaks of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted malt, caramel, and some chocolate notes. Taste is of the roasted malt with some off-chocolate flavors and a fruit flavor I can't put my finger on. A prickly carbonation makes for a crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer and an interesting style choice to be coming out of Brazil.
