Yesterday, Clock House Brewing released two new beers in their taproom. One of those beers happened to come at a time when we all just dropped a paycheck on multiple boxes of Girl Scout cookies…and my favorite Girl Scout cookie is now in beer form thanks to Clock House….BEHOLD…..Coco Suenos!!!
Coco Suenos is a imperial stout loaded with who knows how many packages of caramel delite cookies, caramel, chocolate, and coconut! Let’s dive into this delicious brew!
The nose is straight up cookies…caramel, chocolate, a bit of coconut…when the nose hits like this it’s hard to let the beer sit to about room temp, so I had to sneak in a quick sip!
Motor oil black, you can tell that the mouthfeel was going to be dense compared to some. Lots of lacing on the glass.
All the flavors of the cookies shine…caramel, chocolate, coconut compliment the booze nicely. Let it warm a bit and you get all the flavors. It’s sweet, but not overly, that was an initial worry. Well-balanced, the mouthfeel was viscous. I like a thicker stout and this one surely is. Definitely a decadent stout worth seeking.
If you get a chance, don’t miss out. Only on tap at the Clock House brewery in Cedar Rapids. This is one worth seeking and sipping and enjoying. Definitely a beer to start my best of 2022 list with and I hope you give it a try and enjoy it! Cheers!
