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 (5205) - 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.

jfb (4479) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 28, 2015
(bottle) murky ruby-brown colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate and hazelnuts, with a light touch of paint thinner, some cold filter coffee and caramel icing. flavour is mostly milk chocolate and grainy roasted malts, slightly tart, with some more sugar icing, hazelnuts and an earthy finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Een mooi biertje met een goede aroma. Weinig bubbel waardoor hij bijna een zijdezachte mondgevoel heeft. De koffie komt goed naar voren, verder subtiele tonen van caramel en bruine suiker.

androman (737) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
33cl bottle at home from Mitra, Maarssen. Body is clear to opalescent deep ruby brown, head is medium, beige, fizzy, average lasting, fair lacing. Nose is belgian yeast, flavor is light roasted malt, cola, caramel. Medium sweet, medium bitter. Finish is medium lasting light roasty medium bitter, light coffee, medium alcohol warmth. Medium body, dry texture, fizzy carbonation. Easy dessert beer, rather feels like an abbey dubbel, or cola, not too exciting.

suurjuust (1556) - ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2015
Clear brown, big beige head. Fruity nose, malt, mild roast, stale coffee. Flavor is more stale coffee, caramel, red fruit, acidic touches. Lingering booze, coffee and caramel. Not bad, but the coffee tends to get stale pretty quickly in these things. Pretty round and easy to drink. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

Marduk (3544) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2015
750ml bottle. Clear dark copper color. Medium size, beige head, stays. Sweet, raisins, malty, metallic notes in aroma. Metallic, earthy, malty, some coffee beans in taste. Too high carbonation for this type of beer. No thanks.

750ml bottle - thanks Marduk!
Smells of tinned tomatoes, metallic. Tastes of rye bread, but also very old. BB 9 months in the future. Raw and old stale metallic taste. Just occasionally I get a hint of coffee, but it’s rare, and it’s not so nice at all. Even 2.2 is an overrate. Watery palate, thinnish. So much an overrate, this is going down the drain.
