    And here I always thought that bull balls would go better with the flavor profile of a Gose

    I was just about to issue a "WTF?" as to why testicles were an ingredient in an oyster stout. Good thing I clicked on the article. :oops:

    It takes a lot of balls to brew a beer like that.

    That's a great idea... I have a skunk invasion at my place, I can just catch them, put them in the blender and use them for home brewing..

    Oh man, you're probably so right, that's hilarious. I just hope it's been sold before the GABF deadline, or else it's not admissible.

    @Saluki, that was a forgone conclusion what with your known love of balls. I mean, who among us HASN'T been to a tasting where the mic gets passed to Saluki for his thoughts, and he just proclaims - apropos of nothing aside from his unwavering dedication to all things testicular - "I love balls!"

    I would be interested since the testicles are sterile (from boiling)

    If that's what you need to tell yourself to swallow this whole, go ahead. Maybe, if you hold the bottle from the bottom and give it a little tickle, it'll be great...
    The only meat I might like in my Beer is Bacon. Too bad Baller Stout was already taken.

    some days, more than others, I remember what my dear old pappy told me, back in '65 I believe it was. During the "birds and bees" talk I believe.

    "Son, just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it, do you understand?"

    It's great seeing these comments, I hope you nuts will stop by and give our Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout a try at GABF or Wynkoop. We would never steer you wrong.

    Belgorado kicks ass. Not too sure about the stout even if it isn't that bad.
