    My local Zymurgist is going to be brewing a Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout soon... anyone else ever done this? What should I expect? I'm not even sure I wanna be around for this one! Points for experimentalism and out and out BALLS (Pun intended)! I can't imagine the Bull parts will actually add that much to the taste, but what do I know. Thoughts?
    thanks...

    It's real. A bit gimmicky, but I'd probably try it. Heck, we eat chorizo here, how back can RMO stout be? :rolleyes:

    Rocky Mountain Oysters are actually tasty as hell. They remind me of a creamy calamari when they are done right. I could see said ingredient adding texture to the brew in the same way lactose does, or a high mash temp.

    And yeah, it was an April fools joke initially and came to be a real brew around last years GABF.

    I think I would rather have them on a plate with a beer then in my beer!

    Sounds like a perfect recipe to get Jack off the beer and on the wagon.

    Puts a whole new spin on the name "Beernuts".

    Wyncoop had this one on tap for a while, and I was at the parade of darks that they hosted when they first made the beer. I stopped at their booth, but couldn't bring myself to try it. Sounded super gimmicky and pointless.

    "3 balls per barrell"- I doubt that would add any flavor whatsoever anyway. That's such a tiny amount of something that woudln't probably impart much flavor without a ton of it in there.
