Lately I've been looking outside the U.S. for tempting brews to try. Last week Tiger from Singapore left me feeling flat as, well, the beer itself. This week I'm heading to Brazil to try out Xingu Black Beer.
Taste: Xingu is a schwarzbier which means it shares many characteristics with porters and stouts. But this isn't Guinness. Xingu is smoother, less bitter and slightly more caramel in flavor. This is one of the few beers I tried with my fellow New Times comrades that everyone liked.
