Poured a translucent black with reddish edges. Nicely balanced toward the sweet side. Medium-light bodied.

Not crazy about this one. Some chocolate and coffee flavor but to watery and bitter

Bottle. Black color with a laced rich brown head. The flavor is fully roasted, grainy, has burnt malts, bitter, and is creamy. It finishes light but leaves a long lasting malty aftertaste.

Its seductive appearance and silky mouthfeel really keep this beer from being way below average. Way too sugary and a strange aftertaste are Xingu’s weak spots. This was nothing I would buy again.

I like. Mild, milky, sweet and fairly sugary. It reminds me of Castle Milk Stout.

Yum yum. Dark, smoky, malty, roasty. Very smooth and surprisingly drinkable. I’m not familiar with the black beer style, but I didn’t expect it to be so easy to drink or so light bodied. I thought this stuff was going to be tough. One of my favorites.

Re-Rate 10/21/02: The beer pours a nubilous blackberry red, the head is moderate in size, creamy, light chocolate brown, the lace glutinous and long lasting. Nose is malt, sweet, molasses like tones, coffeeish. Front is overbearingly sweet, the top has a light mouthfeel, the finish is unsubstanially hopped, very light carbonation, the aftertaste malt and quite dry. ’Cadaverously thin’, which sums it up for me. Ranks #867 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2002
About as dark in color as a beer can get. Fairly thin and carbonated on the palate. Has a curious, "sweet soda" flavor to it. Sugary coffee flavors exude, with a little burntness too. Very mild hops. Sort of like a light-bodied stout. Finishes clean. Interesting in its simplicity.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2002
Black hue. Tannish head. Licorice and burnt caramel nose. Very sweet all the way through. Vey thin, light bodied, moderate carbonation. Sweetened black coffee is about all i can say.

Skred (107) - Houma, Louisiana, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Small, thick brown head, lots of lace. Rather weak, slightly off aroma, but flavor is better. First impression is a mild porter. Weak carbonation, a bit light on the hops and less body than the appearance suggests, but still not too sweet, although it’s hard to pin down the flavors other than coffee. This is a good beer but not a great one.
