’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.

Icedwarf (347) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
Bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is duidelijk koffie en chokolade, in combinatie met de licht bittere en licht zoete biersmaak een uitstekende combinatie. Blijft helaas gemiddeld lang hangen. Kleine 33cl fles. Geslaagd product !

EddyBeer1 (902) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2014
Brune très foncée, effervescence faible, col beige moyen et crémeux. Principalement maltée, amertume de café présente mais pas trop, moka, un rien sucrée, assez ronde, petite sécheresse, l’alcool se fait sentir.

"Double Expresso" fait penser à une bière forte en café, mais ce n’est pas du tout ça. Le café se sent très peu, dommage.

Swaroga (1387) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2014
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor ciemnego brązu. Piana jest potężna o kolorze beżu. NOS : mocne aromaty mleka, cappuccino, czekolady, mokrego kamienia. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane o średnim nasyceniu. Oleiste. Słodkie ale nie do przesady z subtelnymi nutami cappuccino i mlecznej czekolady. Piwo jest trochę kwaśne również podobne do skwaśniałego mleka albo śmietany. Umiarkowanie gorzkie o nutach podpalanych. Posmak ma cierpki, podobny do polizania kamienia. ODCZUCIA : przyjemny stoucik. Jest bardzo mocno gazowany przez co podobny do piw belgijskich. Umiarkowany w smaku ale nie bez charakteru. Spoko. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 6/10
