Black with cherry edges & low head, some carbonation. The aroma is dirty with some light ricey, fruit & subtle chocolate roast malt; coconut & peach too. The flavor is light & sweet, smooth very sake like with metallic roasted qualities too. Finishes balanced & tangy.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Dark brown with lighter edges and a creamy tannish head with spotty lacing. Aromas of chocolate and roast malts. Slightly sour and bitter. Similar malts in the flavor with some more bitterness and a slight nutty quality. Smooth and roasty.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Dark, nearly black in color. Sour corn and malt aroma. Slight fruity and stale cereal flavor a hint of licorice and an unusual medicinal flavor. A terrible schwarzbier.

I tried Xingu for the first time at a bar in La crosse Wi. It was a little expensive but had a surprisingly good taste and aroma. It was a little sweet for my taste but good none the less.

Pours an opaque black with a tan, somewhat lasting head. Highly carbonated. I can taste the anise in the creamy mouthfeel. Thin body but not bad.

I remember thise having more of an anise flavor, but it still shows hints. Dark and boasting a decent brown head. Light and smooth, hints of chocolate and anise in front of a nice sweet malt background.

Sampled at the Southside Beer Expo. Much more than a schwarzbier. Not hoppy or roasty from the malts, but rather "quiet," with a succinct fruity character. My sample had lower carbonation than other beers, which enhanced its mild flavor profile.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Eric-bottle-pours fairly black with a nice fizzy tan head and good lacing. aroma is funky, but in a good way-roast, char and some german lager funk going on. this definately fits the characteristic of the style. flavors seem tame for such a dark beer-german malt funk, some roast, and some light cardboard, but not really bad. body verges on thin, but its not too bad. finish is light with some subtle grain notes (rye and anise) Keith-Intersting brew here. A dark lager with a taste that has hints of some of its darker beer brothers. Sweat and creamy. Nice malt taste. FYI- named after a tributary of the Amazon river.

Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Decent light brown head. Light carbonation. Hearty roasted grains in the aroma with a bit of licorice. Color is a dark dark brown, almost black. Flavor is a little bit thinner than expected but quite good and smooth. Creamy mouthfeel with some subdued roasted flavors. Finish is silky smooth with a hint of bitterness. A very easy drinking beer and a decent schwarzbier.

This one really tricks you into expecting a heavy flavor, but it’s very light. While I prefer beers with more flavor, this one is great in terms of drinkability. Has a smooth taste throughout and quite different than any others.
