An excellent beer from Brazil
. More of a style than a brand, as it's brewed around the country. This beer is extremely dark, with hints of licorice
and spices. Caramelized sugar
is used in the brew which produces a most wonderful slightly sweet burnt taste. True to its name, Xingu is a complete photon
-stopper. I can't see through it even with a halogen torchiere
behind it. Aaahhhh.
For the best info, see the immortal, wise and talented Michael Jackson of Beer Hunter fame, who traveled and tasted for us when we could not. Check out:
