COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gracias a esta cerveza José Tomás y Asbjorn se conocieron y nació este proyecto. Kross Stout, es potente y compleja en la boca. De color rubí con un cuerpo intenso y notas a café tostado y chocolate amargo. Es la más premiada de nuestro portafolio y va muy bien con mariscos, postres de chocolate y quesos mantecosos.

“Tratando de rescatar las memorias de mi primer viaje a Irlanda en 1994: Caminatas por los costados del tremendo lago Earne. Letreros ilegibles en idioma Gaelic. Días donde sol, nubes y lluvia cambian a cada rato, increíble la intensidad del verde de los campos. Largas noches sentado en Pubs antiguos, jugando dardos, hablando con extraños como si fueron amigos de toda la vida.”

Maltas Especiales: Pilsen, Caraambar, Carafa, Cebada Tostada, Caramelo
Lúpulos: Magnum, East Kent Goldings

Bottle, thanks Palle! Almost black, brown collapsing layering head. Coffe, chocolate roast aroma with preserved fruit notes. Nice base roast, good moccha flavors with cedarwood and vanilla notes, berries, bitter hops and roast finish. Medium to light body with a good chewyness and sparkle. Nice one.

gringoroll (62) - viña del mar, CHILE - MAR 16, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Pours a clear reddish black when held to the light, light foam which didn’t last. Strong aromas of coffee, malts, and dried fruits, slight sour element as well. Very strong coffee flavor with some chocolate notes as well, but well balanced with strong bitter. Light to medium body and light carbonation. Good beer.

Me encanto esta cerveza. Un olor un tanto acaramelado al tomarla se siente esa mezcla de sabores donde destacan esas notas de cafe tostados. una gran cerveza de las mejores de kross

Sampled in Valparaiso. Really enjoyed this brew. The toasted malts a some of the best I had in South America. A decent head on it. Would have liked to have tried at room temperature.

ALLOVATE (2874) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2011
Pours jet-black with a firm, compact tan head that lasts and laces well. Big, thick mudcake and coffee liqueur nose with Kopiko candy, plums and charred wood, very nice. In the mouth it has notes of vanilla, heavily roasted cacao beans and milk chocolate, pasty, ashen ’black patent’ and smoke. Assertively bitter, burnt malt swallow, shows good length, a lot of burnt wood, ash and chocolate. Becomes drier and drier the more I drink. Smooth in the swallow but an acid bite upfront is very prickly and uncharacteristic, being its only detriment. Quite light in body, enough flavour here carries it well. A surprisingly good Stout, didn’t know what to make of it just from the label. Nice! (33cL, 5.2% ABV, BBE 11/10, The Beer Store Morley)

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Great beer. Aromas of chocolate and caramel. Taste is sweet, with very light bitterness, and long lasting. Palate is silky, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy white head.

mkel07 (5102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2010
330ml bottle. Thick, oily and black with a coffee bean aroma and a frothy tan latte coloured head. Burnt malt also comes through in the aroma and the body is thinner than it appears with a burnt coffee flavour that feels good in the mouth.

hawthorne00 (3464) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2010
Bottle, with smallest ullage I’ve seen in a beer. 13C. Pours black with a coating tan head. Mild aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Restrained example of the typical oatmeal mouthfeel. Roast and coffee bitterness. Dry, roasted finish. Nice drop.
