Wynkoop Brewing Company Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout

Poured from a 12 can into a Nonick pint glass. Served chilled.

A) This pours out like motor oil. Thick and chewy looking. Black brew with a very thin dark tan head. This settles to a collar.

S) Nice roasted barley. Hints of coffee and dark chocolate. A pleasant sweetness. I'm not getting much of the bull testicles in the aroma.

T) Really quite nice. The chocolate is more present in the flavor. Nice mocha cafe aftertaste. Still not picking up bull testicles, although I don't have much of a bull ball baseline to go off of here. For the most part this follows the nose.

M) A solid medium bodied brew with lighter carbonation. This brew was super smooth and mouth coating. Not sure how bull testicles effect mouthfeel.

O) Clearly the fact this is brewed with bull testicles is marketing. Really, this is a damn fine stout. I'd go for this again.

Luscious, luxurious-looking liquid. Thick and creamy, the midnight-black ink in the glass is topped with a quarter-inch of mahogany foam.

Salted caramel, milk chocolate, toasted bread, more than a little dark fruit, figgy. A hint of smoke. Something savory deep in the background, like a good steak, umami.

Nice smokiness. A bit of coffee, sweet cream, cocoa powder, earthy hop bite, ethanol, pork chops, finish of raisins, coffee beans, cocoa and booze. Vanilla bean. Again, a subtle savory note.

Heavy cream in the mouth. Thick body like melted chocolate, rich, more than mild bitterness. Tiny bubbles pepper the tongue; alcohol burns it.

A superb stout even without its ballsy adjunct.

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
