33cl can served into a Guinness goblet in me friend's gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Expectations are above average to high.
Served cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.
A: Pours a three finger dark khaki-tan colour head of nice thickness and caramel. Nice creaminess. Great (~10 minute) retention. Nice light lacing.
Body colour is an opaque black; not quite a jet black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Overall, it looks pretty good.
Sm: Roast, cream, dark malts. Caramel. Chocolate malt. A moderate strength aroma. Cream malts. Nuts.
No yeast character or alcohol comes through. A mild to moderate strength aroma.
T: Creamy, dark malts, chocolate malt, roasted barley. Not getting any testicle or bull meat notes from the aroma. Light coffee notes. Nuts. Nicely balanced and built. I do like it.
No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Decent complexity and subtlety.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Nicely creamy. Nice thickness. Nice creaminess. Suits the flavour profile well.
Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. I'd definitely get again. It's a tasty brew. Quite good. I can't wait to finish this can.

Drinkin this at the brewery!!!
What started as a joke, ended up with the Wynkoop brewmaster actually using bull's testicles in this stout. Pours up black, nice off white lacing. Aroma is standard dark toasty malts. Flavor is a hint of vanilla, dark chocolate, and this little kiss of oddity up front I can't put my finger on. Guessing its...the balls. Full bodied. Smooth and easy carbo. Interesting beer
Serving type: on-tap

12 fl oz can served in a snifter, reviewed live:
A - Pours a thick, deep, opaque chocolate color with a finger of mocha colored thin head that leaves no lacing. Retention is awful but expected as the can opened without even a hiss.
S - Sweet milk chocolates open over the restrained roasted malt body. The depth of the chocolate notes are surprising and pleasant. Salty/mineral notes are evident. Heavy cream and a certain woody quality are buried.
T - Milk chocolate, cocoa and a plum note I'd not found in the nose dominate. Roasted and chocolate malts form the body. Assertively bitter and a touch salty on the finish, nicely balancing the sweet chocolates. Having had rocky mountain oysters, I'd never guess them as the secret ingredient, but I enjoy the earthy roasted flavors they contribute. The balance is much better than I'd guessed based on the nose.
M - Medium bodied. Definitely thinner than I'd like. Smooth with low carbonation.
D - A good stout with some unique qualities. Not particularly great, but I'm glad I tried it.

12 oz can (from 2 pack, of course). Pours dark brown black with a smallish fizzy dark brown head that goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is sweet fudgy bakers chocolate and some roast with maybe a hint of salt.
The flavor is sweet fudgy chocolate with some acidic roast and a bit of saltiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, chocolate salty balls! Surprisingly good, but a bit too sweet.
