4.23/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 fl oz. can, with no apparent canned on or freshness date present. I ordered four cans of this beer along with four cans of Wynkoop Silverback Pale Ale and four cans of Wynkoop Rail Yard Ale from LetsPour.com. Clearly this is the most exciting beer of the package, and I'm stoked to have it in my grasp.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours a "meaty" dark opaque brown colored body with about two fingers of creamy mocha / tan colored head. Head recedes, leaving a few thick rings of fluffy mocha lace.

S - Smell is slightly strange, and unsuspected. But then again, I wasn't exactly expecting normality with this one. Definitely some roasty malt notes, whipped chocolate cream, some smoke. A hint of tart dark fruits and some nutty wine-like characteristics. Smells pretty damn amazing, when it comes down to it.

T - Taste follows the nose: some dark roasty malts, barley, chocolate, cream, some smoke / char flavor, lots of tart dark fruits like figs & cherries, red grapes, some testicle. Okay, just kidding, there's no testicle taste present. Fairly surprising, and is bound to exceed your expectations of what you think this will be like. There is seriously a lot going on here.

M - Feel is lightly tart / sour with some bitter roast clinging to the palate. Ideal carbonation.

Overall, what started out as a joke and a play on words turned into something quite good. Definitely the best of the three beers by Wynkoop Brewing Co. that I have tried, and it is definitely a beer I would get again, given the opportunity. Highly recommended, if you can get your hands on it.

Wynkoop Brewing Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout ---4/5.

this was a surprisingly great beer, It has a nice smoked meat flavor, reminiscent of some of the great London porters i've had. best stout I've had in a long time. not gross or weird tasting at all.
If you can find a two pack, buy it.
yes, it comes in two packs because because ball jokes are hilarious

pour is opaque dark brown with a beige bubbly head. Nose is clean roast, chocolate, molasses, and a hint of nuttiness (no seriously). Taste is very big, strong roasted barley and lots of rich chocolate fudge, again there is a roasted almond flavor towards the back of the palate and a hint of sweetness. Relatively thick viscous body but falls off a touch in the finish. The roast lingers. I was terrified but actually pretty decent.

12 oz ban served chilled into a shaker pint glass.

Rocky Mountain oyster Stout is a very dark brown with a thin crema colored head.

Aroma is full of rich roasted malt and dark roast coffee beans.

Flavor is sweet up front with a milk stout character. It has good bitterness from the roasted malts and a hint of mineral or slightly metallic note.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and nicely carbonated with good balance and drinkability.

Overall a good stout but it's hard not to think about the nuts that went into making it.
