Pours a clear black with a thin mocha cap that dissipates immediately with no lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt and dark bread. Flavor follows the nose, slightly sweet. Feel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation. Overall a decent beer.

Xingu Black Beer brewed by Cervejaria Kaiser, with an ABV of 4.70% This German Schwarzbier pours out a deep brown color with a thin light brown head. This brew has the look of black coffee, not saying that is a bad thing. There is some thin spotty lacing to this brew as well, it does stick to the side of the glass. The smell is rich with roasted grains and malts. You also pick up on a mild sweetness mixed with hops. So far Xingu Black Beer is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bold , yet smooth with flavors. You first pick up on a mild sweetness, mixed with roasted grains and malts. This brew goes down nice an smooth . The body of Xingu Black Beer is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. For being a dark brew it goes down nice an smooth. The mouth feel is Bold, Roasted, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. This brew would go nice on a cool day, or with dinner. Overall I'm going to give Xingu Black Beer a soild 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Cervejaria Kaiser, did a real nice job with this one.

Not bad at all - certainly better than I expected and surprisingly tasty and refreshing. Nice dark brown, almost black color with just a little head and lacing. Smells of malt, raisins and grain. Tastes of malt, raisins, grapes and some plum flavors in the background. A very small amount of mineral hard water taste. Smooth clean finish with a very mild mouthfeel. Could have used a little more carbonation. I will have to try others from this brewery.

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!
