’Broeder Jacob Double Espresso’ is a perect marriage, according brothers Johan Claes of Brewery Broeder Jacob and business man Wim Claes of coffee-roasting factory Java. This dark brown beer holds an alcohol percentage of 7,7%. The used coffee which will be mixed during the brewing, is made the Turkish way, before adding this to the process. The beer is available in bottles of 75 cl, but from next year it will be available in small bottles of 33 cl and kegs as well.

Maakun (1463) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Tap at Doerak. Almost black with off white head. Sweet malts, sweet fake chocolate, brown sugar, quite some sweet malts. Taste is mainly sweet. Medium bodied. Just sweetness not much else.

Geweldig bier met een heerlijke koffiesmaak. De stout smaak blijft wat op de achtergrond gelukkig.

Bruisend in de mond, koffie ja, espresso niet, meer kruidkoek. Nasmaak wat laf. Aroma is er haast niet behoudens een zuurstokken kraam, misschien te koud, misschien de hooikoorts. Geen kraag op donkerbruin.

mjansen1310 (132) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
0,33 cl bottle. Pours a dark brown beer with a light beige head. Starts of with a laurel tastes and flows to a coffee taste even with sugary feel. Expected more espresso and intenster flavour with the double espresso mark on the bottle.

Gerbeer (2320) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours black with a moderate white head. Aromas of chalk, black coffee and dry roasted malts. Flavors of same with emphasis on dry roasted malts and moderately strong coffee plus a bit of dark chocolate. Nice enough and smooth for a coffee enhanced beer.

Een mooi biertje met een goede aroma. Weinig bubbel waardoor hij bijna een zijdezachte mondgevoel heeft. De koffie komt goed naar voren, verder subtiele tonen van caramel en bruine suiker.

androman (874) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
33cl bottle at home from Mitra, Maarssen. Body is clear to opalescent deep ruby brown, head is medium, beige, fizzy, average lasting, fair lacing. Nose is belgian yeast, flavor is light roasted malt, cola, caramel. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Finish is medium lasting light roasty medium bitter, light coffee, medium alcohol warmth. Medium body, dry texture, fizzy carbonation. Easy dessert beer, rather feels like an abbey dubbel, or cola, not too exciting.
