About British  and  North American Ales from Chile
Although Chile is not well known for beer, it is the most consumed alcoholic beverage in the country, representing about 60% of the market. Premium beers represent 18% of that figure and craft beers have become very popular as of late; there are now more than 300 microbreweries in Chile. Most of the beers produced in Chile are lagers. There is a large German influence, especially in the southern Los Lagos region, which was populated by many German immigrants in the 18th and 19th centuries. That fact accounts for the style of beers from this territory.

Cervecería Kross 5 Barrel-Aged Strong Ale
92 points
Brilliant dark copper color. Interesting aromas and flavors of chocolate coconut macaroon, cherry-pomegranate yogurt, roasted chestnuts and squash with exotic honeycomb, and sandalwood incense with a slightly chewy, bright, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a seamless, complex, long finish imparting shades of fruit cake, cherry cola, cedar pencil, and wood aged cachaça finish. An intriguing and exotic wood aged ale.
