12 fl oz bottle at Chamas, Durham, NC. Never tried this one before. I was looking for a dark ale and this was the darkest they had. It pours black with little to no head. Aromas of molasses and roasted malts. The taste was slightly sweeter than I had expected but it was really very good. Again, the molasses flavours came through with hints of liquorice and aniseed. Definitely full bodied, creamy and easy to drink. This was my favourite drink over this past Christmas.

This beer truley is black. It is very a very unique beer in the fact that it is full-bodied, but it goes down extremly smooth. I drink this beer whenever i can get it.

Damn. Very dark with some red if light passes through it, brownish head. Aroma of chocolate and malts. Taste is bitter with a nice citrus undertone and a biting finish. Very good stuff.

My favorite beer to date. Dark. Strange rootsy taste. Love it. Somewhat pricey around here at 11-12 dollars a 6 pack. Good stuff.

Xingu is, IMHO, the champ of the Schwarzbier category. It’s drinkable in large quantities, which is good b/c the bottle is immense! Better than Sprecher Black Bavarian, which is too damn malty!

Great dark color (as the name suggests), rich aroma of smoked malt. The taste is excellent, compares quite well with Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout, not quite as silky smooth, but the taste is almost as great. Has a good combination of coffee flavor and maly, and maybe some chocolaty hints. Overall an excellent beer.
