COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A meaty foreign-style stout, Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is made with Colorado base malts, roasted barley, seven specialty malts, Styrian Goldings hops, and 25 pounds of freshly sliced and roasted bull testicles. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is an assertive, viscous stout with a rich brown/black color, a luscious mouthfeel and deep flavors of chocolate, espresso and nuts. The beer sports a savory, umami-like note and a roasty dry finish. Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is 7.5% ABV and 3 BPBs. (That’s balls per barrel.)

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.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Received in a trade. This poured a very inviting black with a dark tan that soon dropped down a few shades. An aroma that had roasted notes and some chocolate. That was the flavor, too. Fortunately no testicles were tasted! Well, testicles or not this was pretty decent.

Can split at the sausage party. Aroma is roast coffee, chocolate, and metal can. Pours black with a nice white film and good carbonation. Taste is roast coffee, some dirty grinds, and just a hint of iron. Roasty and delicious, not too much sweetness. Solid stout.

deyholla (5958) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Can thanks to a trade! Pouurs black with a dark brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a lots of dark grains and roasted malts with a hint of umami backing. Flavor has strong roasted malts up front with a note of umami with a strong dark grain backing and a hint of bitterness.

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass From: Beer Advocate’s ucsbmullet Price: N/A Purchased: Received it on Oct. 10, 2013 Consumed: Oct. 18, 2013 Misc.: N/A Thanks to Nick for the chance to try this. Poured an almost pitch black color with two fingers of almost reddish tan head that dissipated surprisingly quickly. Almost no lacing along the sides of the glass on the way down. Minimal retention on the top. Smelled deep notes of tobacco, coffee beans, toffee, caramel, raisin, dates, roasted nuts and faint plum. Tasted altogether a bit better than the smell. Got caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, Irish whiskey (I think), light coffee notes, nutty, dates and raisins. Full body. Slick texture. Soft carbonation. Long, warming finish. This just kept getting better. Alcohol was well hidden. Definitely the best part of the beer. A very nice stout that just kept getting better as it went down. I’d definitely have it again.

blklab2007 (1878) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Can as a generous extra. Thanks so much for this interesting piece. Pour has a super dark brown color with a ring of off white foam on the glass. Aroma has earthy sweetness that I just try to convince myself is not form the bull balls. Dark malt, chocolate, and salty dust. Not as bad as it sounds but boy is it a mental challenge to even take this in. Mouth feel is somewhat thin with lower side carbonation. Flavor has malts, fleshy salt, chocolate, and a lingering finish. Not much here outside of the novelty but it was great to open with a bunch of the guys and see the reactions when they learned what was in it. :)

Catching up on old ratings. My sister sent this from CO after hearing about the rocky mountain oyster brewing. Black/brown pour. Aroma had nice chocolate smell. The flavor had more coffee and lots of malt. Didn’t get anything from the RMOs. Kinda thin tasting, but still fun beer. Thanks sis!
