COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
’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.

Borresteijn (4684) - Amsterdam, - FEB 10, 2013
Tap sample at In de Wildeman. Clear dark copper to brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of Christmas spices, brown sugar, candied fruits, amber malts, ground coffee. Flavour is likewise, with a nice coffee flavour and good bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Decent Belgian Strong Ale, came across as a Belgian winter ale with coffee added. Nowhere near a stout as stated here on RB, that must be a mistake.

Dunkel, med et svagt gyldent skær og gulligt tyndt lag skum. Næse af jern humle og en anelse kaffe/anis. Smagen ikke nær så kaffe-agtig som navnet antyder. Temmelig frisk og bitter af en brune. Starter humlet og bitter med masser af frisk kulsyre. Balanceres af en mere sød afslutning med lidt krydderi og et nøk kaffe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mainuh_man (128) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a rocky tan head. Aromas of dark coffee, alcohol, some dark fruit. Mild sweet malt flavor with lots of coffee, caramel, and bready malt. Transitions to mellow sweetness in the middle, finishing with a little roasted malt character and a mild, coffee linger and sugars in the throat. Fully bodied with a slick mouthfeel and relatively sharp carbonation. Overall, really nice flavor profile on this one. Nice balance between malt and coffee bitterness.

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 !
