Xingu
« on: March 24, 2010, 09:45:21 PM »
Black Brazilian beer.  This beer pours dark and with a very slight head.
Aroma is floral with molassas notes.  1st taste is more bitter than the aroma
would have you believe...nice hoppy full flavored beer that kind of leaves your
palate clean. Not overly heavy for this dark of a color. roasted maltiness notes of treacle.
 I would buy this again if I had an opportunity,  I got this bottle as a gift...thanks Richard.

I've seen this around town but have not tried it yet. My fav bottle shop just started offering mixed 6 packs of selected beers so I will probably try it soon.

It's been around forever. I used to drink bombers of it before we went out when I was still in Grad School, so 20+/- years ago...

That's funny. The beer stores around here market it as a "new" product ;D I hate advertisers.

I was referring to the advertisers.  Personally, I really, really like this beer.  I was eating at a Brazilian restaurant, and this was the only non-yellow fizzy beer they had.  I was very pleased!

I can get it. Is it worth buying a sixxer?

Seems like a loaded question... However, If it is not overpriced I would.  But then,
sometimes I would buy Shiner Bock...
