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.

Just an average Stout. Nothing special in the flavor or nose. Wouldn't go out of your way to try unless your looking for something out of the ordinary with shock factor. Definitely not one of Wynkoop's best. Which is weird since they make some amazing beer.

this started as an april fools joke a few years back, youtube the video, but now it is a reality, and its quite good. real sliced and roasted bull testicles in this. I expected it to be greasy in feel, but really its not, just soft bodied and satisfying. the color is like a cup of joe, with just a small mocha head. the nose is rally roasty, coffee too, but a lot of nearly burnt barley. touch of bitter chocolate as well, and a certain meaty quality, not like rauchbier, or even the maple bacon stuff, not smoked at all, just hearty I guess. the taste is just like the nose, but the smoothness of the flavors blending together and the velvety texture of the beer itself are notable, surprising even. I don't pick out the rocky mountain oysters themselves here specifically, but their collective impact on the final product is obvious. I have to give wynkoop all the credit in the world for actually going through with this, and having it be a beer that is so darn good to boot. mad props yo. also, clever two pack cans... hehe
