Xingu schwarzbier pours a black yet effervescent lager with a thick brown head. Lots of rye and bread in the nose like Kvass almost. Grainy breast taste backed with dark malt. Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Feel isn’t as light or as gassy as I like this style of beer.

L: Pours a dark brown black with notes of ruby where the light hits, a small white head and very little lacing.

S: Very clean smelling, notes of roasted malt, and then sweet fruit cherry and grapes, slight mineral note, note an overly strong aroma.

T: Notes of roasted malt, cherry, grapes and a slight tart sweetness. A slight earthy bitterness.

F: Light body and fairly smooth body.

Nothing special but still ejoyable.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information evident.
A: Pours a clear, brown to dark brown with a one half inch, tan head, limited retention and lacing.
S: Low level aromas of roasted malt/toast with a touch of concordia grade.
T: Dry and very neutral. I definitely get a malt flavor, vis á vis Goya Malta (if you haven't had it, it's interesting) and a hint of unsweetened cocoa. The bittering is subtle. Not bland, just hard to describe.
M: Medium bodied with fairly low carbonation.
O: I had my first Xingu Black Beer during a visit to Rio de Janeiro. At the time, the late 1980's, it was really quite different from anything I had had before. I have the sense that its flavor characteristics have evolved over time (olfactory and gustatory memories are often fleeting), but it remains a very drinkable and subtle Schwartzbier.

Aproveite!

Pours a nice dark hazy-transluscent with a two-finger tan head an excellent lacing. Aromas of char, anise, biscuit, and ester swirl about the nose, and it's a pleasing aroma, albeit a subdued one. The flavor is a bit like the aroma--nothing offputting, but rather bland. Dark fruit, char, hints of cocoa and toast. The mouthfeel is excellent. Light, crisp, and with just a touch of dry bite at the finish. Very drinkable/repeatable.

Overall, an interesting take, although not really true to the style.

With a near-black ruby color, this beer has a mild, creamy roast flavor, where the cream roast is the main feature than anything. The aftertaste disappears really quickly and the aroma is mild, although that might be normal for a low alchohol beer. For a schwarzbier, this is a pretty good offering, as though it’s a beer you can kick back and relax with. Nevertheless, I recommend the Primator Premium Dark Lager, the Praga Dark lager, the Orion Stout from Intergalactic Brewing Company and even the non-alcoholic Malty and Maltstar from Israel.
