#613 "Xingu Black Beer" steht auf der Flasche. Das Etikett zeigt eine Art Landkarte mit Bogenschützen und Krokodil; der Schriftzug Xingu ist gelb. Schlichte Eleganz, ok. Das Bier ist sehr schwarz mit bräunlichem Schaum. Auf der Rückseite steht sinngemäß, dass es sich hierbei um ein schwarzes Lagerbier handelt, dass inspiriert wurde durch Biere, die von Amazonas Indianern gebraut wurden. Das Aroma ist malzig und toffeeartig. Der Antrunk dann nach dünnem böhmischen Schwarzbier! Kaum zu glauben, aber Krusovice lässt grüßen! Unerhofft kommt oft, trinkbares Schwarzbier aus Brasilien! Test vom 5.11.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,10,9,10,9 - 9,30

Famosa cerveja (que é mainstream mas tenta passar uma imagem de alternativa às "enlatadas" que têm no mercado nacional) brasileira. Stout muito, muito suave. Aparência adequada, com persistência de espuma clara mas com alguma formação de bolhas grandes, estilo refrigerante. Cor muito escura. Aroma suave de tosta, pendendo pro café carioca. Sabor de ligeiríssima tosta, de caramelo e "chafé". Não há qualquer amargor, não havendo qualquer carbonatação. Retrogosto amargo levemente. Tentei harmonizá-lá com Sandwich de hambúrguer, queijo e bacon. Não deu certo. Ela desapareceu... Ainda bem com não apagou o delicioso hambúrguer do América! Tentei ainda com frozen yogurt com calda de goiaba mas ela já tinha aquecido um pouco e o gosto de cerveja com aditivos em abundância apareceu. Não vale a pena perder o tempo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarkoNm (257) - SLOVENIA - APR 17, 2014
Pours an extremely deep black color, topped with a generous dark beige head with nice retention. The aroma is very mild. All I could pick up was some malts and a tiny amount of roastiness. The taste starts neutral, it has a balanced body, and finishes with a decent bitterness and some roasty feel. The aftertaste is nicely bitter. Decent. Very,

StefanSD (2018) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with small khaki colored head that has good retention. The aroma is mild with faint licorice, black-strap and roasted barley. The taste is more of the same; anise, molasses and blackened grains dominate. The palate was just a bit off, there was a gritty feeling on the finish. Finished short and dry. Overall: Decent brewski.

Dark bottle pour. Little tan head. Faint chocolate grainy aroma. A little malt up front. Tastes of dark roast, wheat, and a lot of bread. Long, doughy finish. Overall, I liked this beer a lot.

I found this to be a very tasty beer. It went well with the meats at Fogo de Chao. Nice, dark beer with a cream colored head. Tasted of malt and caramel. Smooth drinking, not heavy at all.
