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.

Clear dark brown body, khaki head. Aroma has strong sweet maltiness, raisns, caramelly fruits, bit copper and nuts. Flavour is quite malty and sweet with some bread and fruits. Definitely belgian twist. Some vainilla and rich caramel in flavour. Quite complex without being big beer. I like this.

(Bottle, 0.75 l - BBE Jun 2015, from Alko Arkadia, 20140919) The beer poured brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had chocolate, vanilla, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, chocolate, vanilla, fruitiness, spiciness and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy, malty and bitter. A nice brew but the barrell components were unnecessary addition.

Bello color ámbar pero con un espuma débil. Aroma a caramelo y pasa. Sabor intenso a maltas caramelo con un dejo cálido del alcohol. Una excelente cerveza para disfrutar con calma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorisPPattyn (7930) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2014
Small cream-white head over copper-chestnut beer, clear. Sourish-chocolate, lactic acid, bit oakey, pickles. Sweet, chocolate, wood, cocoa, but a tad sweet. Wood returning in force at every sip, even with fresh vanilla-oak. Very slick, well-bodied, even syrupy, alleviated by both CO² and other acid. Txs, Tim! Gets an extra point for hailing from Chile, for chrissakes! Too sweet Oud Bruin, with a bit of Doppelbock thrown into.
