’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.

Draft @ ZBF’12. Brune, col épais beige. Arôme est de pur café, on a difficile à décrocher son nez du verre, un fin houblon se pointe en retrait, mais le tout reste juste café et encore café sans pour cela être surfait. En bouche, café est partout dans un bon sens, laissant des notes expresso/moka et toffee avec un malt grillé, le tout agrémenter par un houblon subtile. J’en redemande.

Poured dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee and roast malt,. Fairly full body, flavour is more like a strong latte. End is quite bitter, but still with some creamyness.

Bottle from Douberd - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep black colour with steady löow head and medium to smooth body. Aroma pf malt and espresso. Taste of dark hops, malt, bread, berries, torf, woods and coffee. Very intense palate of espresso - what a nice surprise. Palatestays forever.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Zythos Bierfestival 2012, Leuven, Belgium. Pours murky mahogany with copper edges and full tan head of foam. The aroma is straight up coffee like Folgers coffee and something a little richer. The taste is pretty nice with fairly rich coffee notes rolling into espresso notes, some nuttiness and a bit of toffee like goodness that enhances the experience. This has several layers of coffee and various malt and toffee nuances that creates a rather yummy like harmony.

BlackHaddock (3511) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
0.75 Litre bottle shared at the Diester Bierfestival on 20 Oct 2012. Dark brown with a good solid head of tan coloured foam. Intense coffee flavours: the nose and taste are just infused completely with fresh ground coffee, or that is how it seemed. Stay away from this if you don’t like coffee (there is a hint in the beers name). Rich and heavy, really enjoyed it: had to have a glass of water afterwards though or I’d not have tasted anything else bar coffee all afternoon.

Draft at de fiere Margriet, Leuven. Red to brown colour with thick off whte head. Nice bitterness with coffee, nuts and caramel. Nice taste, coffee not dominating but adding to the flavour.

77ships (3594) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2013
75 cl. bottle shared with the group. Procured from ALBO. Dark brown with an okay beige head. Nose is iron, light malts, light chocolate & light plain brewed coffee, not the strongest of noses. Taste is bitter, pure brewed coffee, cold coffee in a good way, light mocha, bitter spices, light liquorish, sweet chocolate, some roast, agreeably bitter roasted coffee beans in the back, cacao, herbs,… Medium body – taste very much like cup of coffee in a good way. Mission accomplished one could say.

Douberd (2086) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2013
Stubby bottle, 330 ml. At home, poured into a snifter. ABV 7.7% Pours a deep brown red colour on the body with deep ruby shades when the light hits it. Two fingers of thick, light beige head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Aroma is full of coffee, then some chocolate, light vanilla. Amazing taste, again lots of creamy coffee, dark chococate, hint of vanilla. Mildly sweet overall, aftertaste has more of the coffee. Medium body, a bit high on the carbonation. Oily palate. Overall very tasty, I expected it to be good but not that good. Great!
