COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The best way of celebrating our anniversary was to create a new beer. After 5 years Kross 5 was born. It’s a strong ale that has the peculiarity of being the first Chilean beer matured in oak, as well as being bottled in a unique format. It’s a very versatile beer capable of accompanying different dishes.

En boca malta maltoso moderado, tibieza alcohólica. Final ácido y frutal. Con bastantes descriptores no adecuados. Parece estilo lambic.

Dermi (785) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2015
75 cl, bottled. Pours clear red with a nice beige head. Aroma: Condensed milk, toffee, malt. Nutmeg. Taste: Quite sweet, some acidity. Balanced bitterness. Sweet spices, chervil. Very interesting flavours. Generally a bit too sweet for my liking, but it works. Palate: Medium body, some carbonation. Hints of alcohol, not much. Maybe more nutmeg and vanilla, spices anyway, in the end. Some smoky flavours, too. Very interesting, indeed.

AlfredoGarcia (134) - Santiago, CHILE - FEB 20, 2015
Spicy smell with dark amber color, almost deep blood red. Practicly no foam. Surprisingly very good woody strong taste, bitter and a little salty. The body is strong and fulls your mouth. Better than most Kross (the cheap ones usually suck), but not has good has the Lupulus.

gururyan (665) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 18, 2014
I’d been looking forward to getting my hands on some Chilean beers while vacationing in Torres del Paine. I picked this bottle up while in Puerta Natalas and drank it on the shore of Lago Pehoe while staring at the Horns. I have to admit, I was disappointed in this one. I like strong Belgians, but this was too oaky and too spiced. It had the body of a Belgain, but tasted more like a whiskey without the bite…yet still boozy. Not too happy with this one.

thellgren (478) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2014
0.75 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Dark brown colour with big head. Taste has some hops but mainly spicy malts. Reminds me of Swedish gingerbread (Annas pepparkaka). This could be nice during cold winter nights. Very nice.

taste and aroma are fairly interesting, but not bombastic. Belgian feel. Fairly pleasant and easy drinking, but nothing to talk about.
