Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, - NOV 11, 2012
#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

kaups (11) - ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle @ de Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with moderate brown head that won´t last. Aroma of some roasted malt and bit sweetness. Taste is fruity, little bit sour, sweet. Aftertaste is also sweet with very little bready bitterness. Overall quite weak head, weak aroma, weak taste, weak aftertaste. Not the worst but not good either. Left emotionless

ordybill (88) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a strong malt smell with a sweet follow on Appearance- The beer is black as night and it has a nice creamy tan head Taste- : A lightly bitter flavor with a rich hop taste. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- This reminds me of Guinness Black Lager, but I prefer Guinness over this. Not terrible and I would recommend people to give it a whirl
