Clock House bringing back “Java Gypsy” with 2 variants on March 11th!

A personal favorite makes it’s return as Java Gypsy is coming back to Clock House with a two variants available! Release is on March 12th, here’s more from Clock House:

JAVA GYPSY is back on Friday March 11th. And this year we brewed up something special for you! We brewed not 1 but 2 specialty brews for you, featuring our friends from @roasterscoffeehiawatha and @roastedonross .

For the first variant we decided to team up with Roasters Coffee House in Hiawatha! One of our favorite beans from them in the past has been their medium roast Caramel Pecan. If you can remember way back to our very first coffee porter (yes the one without a name) we actually used this flavored bean to craft that delicious brew. These beans provide very strong notes of pecan and sweet caramel that meld together in perfect harmony.

We teamed up with Ross Street Roasting Co and ordered a variety of their delicious offerings. After cold steeping three types of beans we were blown away by the results. All three were unique and delicious. It was hard to select our favorite from the group! After much thought and consideration we decided on their Bohemian Gothic. This bean gave our porter notes of chocolate and subtle smoke without coming across bitter. We’re excited to release this delicious offering! Be sure to look for their beans in stores.

We will be selling mixed 4-packs for $14. And each volume will be available on draft as well.

Coco Suenos: The Perfect Beer for the Girl Scout Caramel Delite Lover!

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!

AROMA
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!

APPEARANCE
Motor oil black, you can tell that the mouthfeel was going to be dense compared to some. Lots of lacing on the glass.

TASTE
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.

OVERALL
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!
