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.

Para celebrar nuestros 5 años como cervecería creamos una cerveza que combina ocho tipos de malta y cinco variedades de lúpulos. Es la primera cerveza chilena madurada con roble americano tostado, proceso que agrega una textura y aromas sorprendentes. Kross 5 tiene un color rojizo potente y notas a avellanas, toffee, vainilla y caramelo.

Maltas Especiales: Caraambar, Caramunich, Rubia, Carafa Especial, Tostada
Lúpulos: Glacier, Goldings, Mount Hood, Horizon, Cascade

Buenisima cerveza. Me encanta para el día a dia. Hubo un tiempo en que decayó, pero los batches nuevos han estado excelentes. Color rojizo. Espuma moderada. Cuerpo medio. Buen aroma. La madera se siente suave. Las maltas caramelo se notan. No es una cerveza para beer geeks, pero es muy rica para comer en la noche, me gusta con cordero, rissotto con alguna carne, incluso con sushi como tempura queda muy bien

Excellent Chilean anniversary special beer. I believe this was brewed as an end of thebyear gift from the brewery to their private clients, but the reception was so good they decided to brew it to the general public, and im happy they did. This is not an all ocassion brew, more like a 'dessert' type thing, after a meal. Enjoy at roon temperature to get all the oakiness dried fruits and alcohol this beer has to offer. Highly recommended

An attempt at a sopphisticated high gravity belgian style ale. Ends up being an over the top concoction of beer adjuncts that don’t blend well.

Little aroma of licorice, esters (?) and alcohol. Taste goes in the same line. Defficient and poorly adapted to the style

una cerveza aromática y muy "sabrosa", se nota el tostado y acaramelado lo que le dan un buen cuerpo y una complejidad muy agradable en boca.

MohaBeer (146) - Lima, PERU - AUG 28, 2015
Ambar intenso con ligera opacidad, buena espuma y adherencia. Presenta trazos de brett, establo, láctico, sulfuro de hidrógeno, acidéz moderado, malta maltoso caramelo moderado bajo, ésteres a nuez, lúpulo cítrico. En boca malta maltoso moderado, tibieza alcohólica. Final ácido y frutal. Con bastantes descriptores no adecuados. Parece estilo lambic.

Dermi (1042) - 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.

Aroma: intense caramel, molasses, bourbon, fruity. Appearance: clear, dark brown, small, creamy, off-white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets continue, bourbon, vanilla, bread and intense caramel malts again, soft carbonation. Overall: quite a beautiful English Strong Ale, excellent bourbon flavours. Bottle from a Chilean friend.
