Xingu is a line of exotic beers dedicated to bring awareness to the Amazon Rainforest. Xingu Black Beer is very smooth and drinkable and is a two time winner of the Beverage Taste Institute of Chicago’s Gold Medal as the best dark lager in the world.

This was a very smooth, light tasting beer. To put the taste into perspective, I would say that if I was to be double fisting at a bar, and Xingu was in one hand, a "good" beer in the other, I would drink most of the Xingu, then down the other beer, and then savor the last few swigs of Xingu for the final taste in my mouth... that’s how good it is.

Nearly black with a mahogany hue and a small tan head. Aroma of molassas, leather, burnt grain, sour milk, coffee. Sweet and tart iin flavor and a smooth mouth feel with little bitterness. Not bad.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Nearly black in color with a thin white head. Aroma is obviously chocolate with a hint of plum. Taste is a little watery with hints of caramel and chocolate. A refreshing beer to eat with steak. Not too complex, but not poorly made either despite it’s molson/coors connection.

Sampled at Broudy’s Beerfest 9/03/05 and bought a sixpack to bring home. Pours clear dark brown , almost black, with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and coffee. Starts out sweet malt, with some tartness and cola feel, dries out just a bit with a faint bitterness at the finish. A little thin, but tasty and pleasant. I like the flavor. Very nice.

Interesting. The aroma is sweet with a toast and floral hop smell. Appearance is dark brown with a so-so head. Flavor is almost candy like. I would swear there is chocolate, licorice, and toffee in this one. Light bitterness in the finish. I like it but it falls a little flat near then end. This would be great if it was a little thicker in texture.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
Not too bad. I was expecting some nasty pale lager when my roommate told me it’s main selling point was that it’s "Imported from exotic Brazil." But this beer actually has some solid malt character, and some hops to back it up. Kind of a watery finish, and a little flat on the palate; but not a bad beer.

Smells sweet some roasted coffee. Very dark with a dark brown head. Very similar to a porter or stout but feels very light. Great flavor.

Very dark (opaque) with light brown head. Head dissipates quickly. Smells sweet and a little like coffee. Taste fairly weak, and feels somewhat watery on the palate. Lacks strong finish.
