Count of Cristo, Brouwerij Bosteels’ first bier release since 2002, is globally exclusive on tap to our Grand Cafés. Like its literary namesake—Alexandre Dumas’ Count of Monte Cristo—this specialty bier is a treasure. Each sip crafts a memorable journey with flavors that are intricate and exciting, layered yet approachable and, unlike the elusive Count, hold nothing back.
This behemoth of a Belgian Strong Dark ale pops with notes of caramel, vanilla, and milk chocolate balanced by a touch of boozy heat and a mellow base reminiscent of a rich Port wine. Count of Cristo’s complex character pairs well with steak, coffee cake, and chocolate.
At 12.5% ABV, Count of Cristo is meant to be thoughtfully sipped and thoroughly savored. Bier lovers—you won’t want to miss your chance to try this small but mighty bier. Swing by your neighborhood Café Hollander or Café Benelux in the Third Ward to try this exclusive bier!
