’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.

bonkiedeaap (644) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer very dark brown to black colored and pours a large and stable cream colored head. In the aroma subtle notes of coffee. It even has some fruity hints of apples and pears. After a while some chocolate is noticable. The taste is full and rich which clear coffee and cacao notes. In the background a rich and soft fruitiness which makes this beer well balanced. The finish is pleasant with a decent bitter espresso and licorice tones, that you continue to enjoy.
