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 (6669) - Zaandam, - 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.

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.

Muddy brown, no head. Aroma of instant coffee, green peas and soil. More instant coffee in the taste, moderate bitterness, watery.

RaduPopovici (20) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle 330 ml, Bucharest at Bistro GUXT. Hazy brown, some red tinge, tan head. Aroma is coffee, caramel, some chocolate. Also bitter and pine resin hints, roasted, acid and fruity hints aswell. Taste is coffee, caramel, some bitterness, some minerality, acidic, chocolate and fruity notes. A pretty decent beer, pretty well balanced and interesting... maybe a little flat.

Bottle. Dark brown, beige head. Aroma: coffee, mint, caramel, sweet bread. Taste is sweet, bread, coffee, caramel. High carbonation, and watery texture. A bit too much carbonation for me.

Woc (115) - BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2016
Well, that is interesting. The coffee taste is really present so it really tastes like a fizzy coffee with some beer aftertaste. Not bad, not something that I would search for but interesting.

Drank with Liedewij in Leuven 24-8-16. Nice beer, fine coffee taste. Some softness, rich taste, good.

Flesje thuis gedronken (tht 3 juli 2016) bruin bier, tijdens het inschenken behoorlijk schuimend maar dit trekt snel weg. Aroma is alsof je een pak koffie open maakt. Smaak van koffie is overheersend. Zoete afdronk. Koffie smaak blijft even hangen. Toch een goede combinatie.
