’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.

yngwie (16529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, reddish dark brown in color and with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has some chocolate, but it’s the coffee that does most of the work. Some faint notes of dms in the far back. Lacking some on complexity maybe, but it’s nice anyway. The flavor is pretty much the same, but the Belgian heritage shines through with white sugar and a yeasty hint. Full to medium body, semi dry and with a pleasant carbonation level. Coffee dominates the finish. Quite nice this one, but nothing more. 140111
