2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served in a snifter. An aggressive pour yields a solid 1+ finger light tan creamy head that is falling steadily as I watch, leaving a substantive lacing on the sides of the glass. The color is black, with some clear brown on the edges when examined with a light. Aroma is mild and elusive, perhaps that of a light chocolate bar with a touch of vanilla. Flavor is mild and balanced, with a hint of sweetness, a hint of bitterness, and a light roast malts. Palate is as promised, creamy and pleasing, driven more by the soft carbonation and less by the body. At 4.4% this is a decent session beer.

Pours black with beige top which disappears quickly. Aroma is a bit milk chocolate, caramel and some fruity notes. Quite fresh and appetising aroma. Taste is also fresh, quite milky, some caramel and white chocolate notes. Not very heavy, after lasts some time and brings up milk caramel. Easy to drink and fresh enjoyable taste!

Xingu probably isn’t one that you would look for in the store but it was the lesser of evils in the restaurant the other night. Dark black pour with no head. Taste is light chocolate and coffee notes with a watery mouthfeel. Xingu is nothing special but is decent if you need a beer among macros.

Unexpected aroma & taste! Super sweet cereal aroma & taste while being enjoyable and not overly sweet. It has that German malt flavor thats a little skunky but in a really good and fresh way. Velvety smooth texture and really good overall. Under rated beer for sure, this is a gem.

Pours a black from a bottle, something like a chocolate cola flavor and aroma. Kind of thin. Okay beer.
