COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously brewed at Du Bocq.

’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.

Fules (1338) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 16, 2017
Sötétbarna szín, nem túl tartós, közepes, bézs hab. Kávés, karamelles, enyhén aszalt gyömölcsös illat. Kávés, karamelles, sötétgyümölcsös ízek. Közepesen testes, erősen szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Nem rossz, de nincs igazi összhang.

Brown color with a bit of tan foam. Aroma has some bright stonefruit notes, fermented fruits and brown sugar. Taste has some stale caramelised malt notes, dusty yeast, fruity notes on the finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Quite stale and generic.

needs to be served very cold to taste every bit of it. I tasted it warm and it didn’t show all of the flavor. Palate is the first thing that surprises me. I thougth this would be a thicker beer but it’s a very thin, flat short texture/finish. I quite like the taste but it’s not the hardcorecoffeebeer I was looking for. It reminds me of a cold espresso you down in 2 sips while wondering why you didn’t order a real coffee. the appearance is really promising but the taste isn’t as awesome as I expected. It’s not that bad but I really had my hopes up for this one.

moldovan9807 (467) - Oradea, ROMANIA - APR 23, 2017
Aroma is dominated by cold coffee.Taste of mild burnt sugar, some slight herbal and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is big on the coffee, but quite mild on anything else, apart from a wee bit of spicy yeast in the finish. Cold cofee all over.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Bottled (MT/KS/MB February tasting). Deep ambery brown colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is coffee, mild burnt sugar, some slight herbal and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is big on the coffee, but quite mild on anything else, apart from a wee bit of spicy yeast in the finish. One dimensional, but still quite tasty.

Many thanks for this beer to Eric De Geyter. Butelka 0,75cl. Piana nie ma sie co czepiac, wiadomo belgijska jakosc w tej kwestii, kolor ciemno czerwony po dolaniu tego osadu robi sie brazowe, jakby kompot ze sliwek wegierek. Zapach malo przypominajacy podwojne espresso niestety, jest lekka kawa troche przypominalo bardziej krem czekoladowy w stylu Nutella niz kawe. W smaku takze slodkie, za slodkie, likierowe. Jak espresso i podwojne to oczekuje mocno palonego kwaskowo gozkiego smaku, zreszta ja espresso pijam bez zadnych dodatkow, a tymbardziej cukru. Lekkie rozczarowanie. Piana i ladna lakierowana butelka w ogolnej ocenie ratuje calosc.
