Bottle Sabor de Minas Restaurant, Ouro Preto. Pours dark reddish brown with big beige head. Aroma of malt and brown sugar. Medium bodied with faint sweetness and faint maltiness - balanced taste. Best of the Brazilian dark beers tasted thus far.

biir (653) - Berlin, - APR 20, 2016
Bottle - Nice smell of exotic fruits, dark brown color, stable head. Taste is dark malts, chocolate. Body is medium. A bit bitter in the end. Quite drinkable, you might think at first. But the more you drink the more the added sugar unnerves you. And why is there artificial colorant, stabilizer and antioxidants? Would rate better if they just let the chemicals out of it.

phfyysik (502) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 8, 2016
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.
